TEMPLE- Every year the Robinson Family Farm opens it's doors to the public to hold their annual Pumpkin Patch. But what's interesting is that their pumpkins are not harvested here in Central Texas but rather shipped from Floydada, North West Texas, to be sold in the area.
The Robinson's wanted to harvest their own pumpkins here and after trying to do so, they soon realized that the soil along with the amount of water required to grow the pumpkins was not cost efficient.
The good news is that the Robinson Family has plans for the holidays. Brian Robinson says, "Now Christmas trees are something that we are going to be growing here on our property. We have about an acre of land that we are going to start the testing process for the soil to grow the trees and then we have another 40 acres that we plan on turning into a Christmas tree farm."
You can visit the Robinson Family Farm in Temple, TX on the weekends where they have food, pumpkins, and games for the whole family to enjoy.
