The Road to Rockberry...

When the Ross Family discovered the 100-acre Poteet farm and historic Rock House homestead just South of San Antonio, big dreams ensued. After many prayers, family meetings, and a visit to the annual Poteet Strawberry Festival, they fell in love and jumped in with both feet. They dreamed of a place brimming with berries and bluebonnets, full of adventure and wide-open spaces, a place that the family could build together and share with others who also wanted to step away, disconnect, and come to the country to play. Inspired by the passion and purpose of the Poteet Strawberry growers they met, they hand planted 13,000 strawberry plants and 1,600 blackberry plants and began their adventure of preparing the farm to receive guests. They called this little slice of sandy loam, Rockberry Ranch, in honor of the historic and beautifully restored 100 year-old Rock House on the property, and the famously sweet Poteet Strawberries they dreamed of harvesting. Their love of God and Family continues to guide them as they care for their land and the animals they steward. The farm is a labor of love, growing and evolving with each day. After many hours of hard work, they are ready to share a Texas Fun Farm Adventure with the San Antonio area. They welcome guests with open arms and hope all will enjoy their time at Rockberry Ranch.

 

The Seasons at Rockberry Ranch:

Spring
During the Spring, you can visit The Patch and pick world famous Poteet Strawberries or head over to the Rockberry Ranch Barnyard and Petting Corral to make friends with llamas, sheep, and goats. Around the farm, you'll see mini-donkeys, bison, chickens, ducks, and more. If you visit the baby barn, you'll experience new arrival lambs and kids. Next on your list might be a ride on the Bee Train, a stroll through our Hay Bale Art Trail, or a climbing adventure on our custom playscapes. The fun continues with a chance to bounce on a giant strawberry or sunflower jumping pillow or you can Rope a Steer, explore our giant Tipi or play unique farm games. If you find yourself a little parched you can enjoy farm fresh strawberry ice cream or frozen strawberry lemonade, and if you're a grown up, you can kick back and enjoy local craft beer or wine at Rock House Draw. You'll also have lots of opportunities to snap a selfie in front of our custom murals or beside our seasonal flowers and farm displays. For extra fun, the Easter Bunny will be at the farm during our Easter Celebration Weekends! As Strawberry Season comes to a close, our juicy sweet thornless Blackberries ripen! The U-Pick Blackberry Orchard is anticipated to open in May and brings with it flower gardens, sweet blackberry ice cream, and more farm adventure.
