6 Day Trips to Berry-Picking Farms Near Collin County

Updated for 2022 by Shanelle Fisher.

It’s berry-picking, outdoor-eating, sun-shining-bright season in the state of Texas; the perfect time of year for day trips! This is one of my favorite times of year because the produce is sweet, perfectly ripe, and so delicious. Local berry-picking farms are also in need of your support.

While putting this list together, I came across many berry picking farms that have shut their doors, and it’s such a loss for our community. I’ve made a list with five day trips to various farms near Collin County to get you and your family outdoors for some food and fun!
