Located in the country just a short drive from Katy, Texas, Dewberry Farm is a kid- friendly creation that brings together the natural setting of a working farm with a few simple rides and other entertainment. Children and families can enjoy some simple, non- motorized fun, ride on one of the small trains or wagon, pet the goats, race rubber ducks, or partake in other activities.
Dewberry Farm will be enjoyed by most children and this is often reason enough to pack up the minivan and head west of Houston to this country destination. Kids like the slides, the zip lines, and other things and most will not mind a ride on the train, particularly during the Halloween or Christmas season when Dewberry Farm has special activities planned like navigating a corn maze or selecting and cutting down your own Christmas tree. There is enough kiddie- type fun to make kids happy and most who visit will quickly proclaim their desire to visit again.
So, with what seems like much to offer, are there any drawbacks to Dewberry Farm? I’m afraid the answer is yes. One is that the base admission doesn’t include all of the rides- some require paying an extra fee and that means purchasing tokens. You can purchase a more expensive pass that covers everything, but it is quite costly for a day on the farm. Then, there is the mud. Pockets of mud can appear when you least expect them and the place is really dirty after a good rain. If you visit, make sure to have the kids wear their least- liked, most worn out shoes because there is a chance they will need to be discarded after visiting. Other issues I have with Dewberry Farm are the rudeness of some of the staff, the price of food and drink, and the lack of employee supervision on some of the rides. The rides are simple enough, but some of them can cause troubles for youngsters and without any employees present to help out, you need to stay close and run to the rescue, if necessary.
Still, in spite of its obvious flaws, kids love Dewberry Farm and most any child will highly recommend the “awesome” experience. So, considering all factors pro and con, I’m going to rate this attraction average overall. It could stand to be improved, but it is a reasonably acceptable place to go for an afternoon outing.
