The Poteet Strawberry Festival would not be possible without the local berry growers. Since the first official festival in 1948, the festival growers have been cultivating the art of producing some of the finest berries in the United States. The Poteet-grown strawberry is known for its amazing sweetness. Taste one and you will know the taste of strawberry heaven.

If you come to the festival you will know for 100 percent certain that you are eating a genuine juicy Poteet-grown berry. All local berries are in boxes which state “Fresh Produce-Poteet, Texas” during Festival Weekend. The Poteet growers have locations on the Festival Grounds to sell their berries located between Stage 9 and 10.

In this issue, you will find features on KH Farms and Walo’s Strawberry Farm. Every other grower besides Texas Farm Patch, Frank Davis, and Reyes Farm, Victoria Reyes/Alex and Shirley Natal, are listed on our Farm and Ranch pages with a way to contact them. Some you may purchase berries from them directly and a few local growers are a “self-pick” farm for you, your family and loved ones.

“On behalf of the Poteet Strawberry Festival Association and the PSFA staff, we would like to take this time to thank the hard-working strawberry growers in our area,” said Carol Rivera, Poteet Strawberry Festival Coordinator. “Their dedication to farming and the strawberry industry is the reason that we are all able to enjoy those beautiful berries during this time of year.”

“Plants are in the ground by September or October and these fragile plants are cared for during the entire winter and into the spring,” said Rivera. “Only those who have the experience and knowledge of what these crops need can care for them until it’s their time to shine. The endless hours, the constant dedication and care for the fruit that their crops will produce is the reason that we all love and respect these hard-working farmers the way we do. The Poteet Strawberry Festival is blessed to be able to work with these awesome individuals and to have their beautiful berries showcased at our event.”
