Sweet Eats Fruit Farm opened for the season March 7 and continues to offer an array of activities and fruit to pick.

Originally an equity trader who sold stocks in Austin, Jon Meredith said buying and starting the farm in 2013 was “baptism by fire.”

The family initially intended the operation to consist of the orchard only but quickly realized people loved spending time on the farm.

Along with seasonal fruit picking, activities on the farm now include pony rides, a petting zoo, feeding the animals, a hay maze, a jump pad, an obstacle course, swings, stone skipping along the San Gabriel River, an artists’ corner, a wiffleball and kickball field, cornhole toss, bull roping, tether ball, duck races, slingshots, tug of war, slides, an adult obstacle course, live music and more.

In late spring or early summer of this year, apple cannons, pedal carts and trikes, and a chicken show will be added.

The farm has also been reconfigured, with parking moved to the middle of the property where there is more space and it is safer by being separated from all the activities. Guests will eventually go through the general store—planned to open in the fall—to check in. Guests can pay to pick fruit only, do the activities or both. Tacos and apple cider doughnuts will also be available for purchase at the store.
Sweet Eats Fruit Farm is located at 14400 E. Hwy. 29, Georgetown. 512-766-3276. www.sweeteats.com
