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 2015!! 2014 was a record setting year and we thank all the folks who came and picked muscadines. We will be open again in 2015 starting Thursday, August 27th ~ open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 8 a.m - 7 p.m. till the muscadine are gone (usually 3-4 weeks). We've had to raise the price this year to $1.50 a pound. See you there!
September 10-12 will be the last weekend for U-Pick. Thanks to all the great pickers this year (especially good job done of picking the big bronze ones). We didn't have as many muscadine as we had hoped - probably because of our strange weather this year. Tis the life of a farmer!
