Blackberries of Houston

It all started in 1930 with both of us being born in rural agricultural Texas and Kentucky.  You cannot take the country life out of a person.  Prior to retiring in 1996, we were self-employed.  we owned McMaster's Rice Hull Compost, a soil substitute for peat moss, and we sold it in Texas over to Florida, up the Mississippi river for golf green construction.

We still use Rice Hull Compost in gardening and mulching today.  It keeps the weeds down, makes it easy to work the soil, and it provides moisture control.  so you will see we are still near the "Mother Earth" with our "Blackberry Patch" and gardening.  Come see the ole Aggie, class of 1958.

We have a 7 1/2 acre home site and we have the Blackberry Patch and garden are on about 3 acres.  Retirement is fun, work, freedom, and mini farming is good exercise for the body physically and the mind spiritually.  We get plenty of good FRESH food and we know where it is coming from.  The crops usually come in mid May and June each year.  During this time of the year May and June, we welcome visitors and tours, children are welcome with parents.

The Blackberries are of the THORNLESS type, no stickers, so picking your own is easy and fun for kids, scout troops, have picnics pick berries!

Blackberries are high with antioxidants and fiber properties for good health.  Blackberries are good in ice cream, breakfast cereals, making cobblers, jellies, juice, wine and by the hand full!
