Located in the hills of East Texas, in the center of Cass County, our Vineyard offers people the opportunity to "pick-your-own" muscadines. For years, these native American grapes (vitis rotundifolia) have been favorites for making jellies, jams, wines, and pies!
The vineyard was planted where the O'Farrell, Texas, post office was located and operated from 1886 until 1905. The barn where the "U-Pick-Em" is operated was built from the salvaged lumber from the old 2-room O'Farrell school house. Thus, the name: "O'Farrell Country Vineyards"!
The first acre of muscadines was planted in February, 2006, and was first opened for pickin' on September 1, 2008. We now have 14 varieties of muscadines to choose from. Their names are Sweet Jenny, Darlene, Ison, Black Fry, Cowart, Black Beauty, Carlos, Bronze Fry, Supreme, Noble, Hunt, Nesbit, Sugargate, and Magnolia.
U-PICK OPERATION 2016!! U-Pick usually begins the end of August or beginning of September, so, keep your eye's open - we'll let you know when picking begins!

Special Christmas/New Year's message: It is that Holiday/Celebrating time of year, and we hope you and your family and friends have a wonderful season. We have some changes in our business hours because Christmas and New Year’s fall on Fridays. We will be closed Friday, Dec. 25, for Christmas, but open our usual hours (noon - 7 p.m.) Saturday the 26th. If you would like to pick up some wine for Christmas or a party or a gift during the week of Christmas, please give us a call. We will work out a time for you to come by. We will be open as usual on Jan. 1 and 2. And if you would like to purchase wine during the week of New Year’s, give us a call, and we will try to work something out.
Come out this weekend to finish your Christmas shopping (we have gift certificates, wine & wine baskets) or just relax.
Again, we wish you and yours a peaceful season. Our phone number is 903 846-2054.
