Peach Picking in the Texas Hill Country
Fredericksburg is known for many things: gorgeous landscapes and rolling hills, vineyards, B&Bs, quaint shopping streets... and peaches. At Marburger Orchard, you can come out to pick-your-own peaches, strawberries, and blackberries; enjoy discounts on weekdays, when the fields are less crowded. When the strawberries arrive each spring (typically in early April), it is known as the “red flood,” with over 1,000 pounds of berries ripened and ready or the picking. So grab a hat and some cartons, and come out into the fields—then head in to town to enjoy the fruits of your labor with a local white wine, served at one of the many restaurants or cafes in downtown Fredericksburg.
