We hope you enjoyed this episode of Cook with Brooks on ‘Country Pumpkins’. As we covered in Episode 5, McGarrah’s Pumpkin Patch has a lot of pumpkins and sunflowers to enjoy in October. Well, fall is a few seasons away, but their is a lot more to do at this family owned farm during the rest of the year. They continue to provide a place where families can go to enjoy nature, spend quality time together, and provide a lot more fresh produce starting around Mother’s Day. That is when you can get some of their delicious berries. Keep reading to see all their produce and where to get it.
Their produce also includes:
- Bell peppers
- Banana peppers
- Anaheim peppers
- Yellow squash
- Butternut squash
You can find most of their produce at the local farmers markets, including Downtown Rogers, Bentonville, Bella Vista, Pea Ridge, and Fayetteville Farmer’s Markets. You may also see their produce in your local grocery stores.
Just like with the pumpkins, if you want to get out to the farm and get some berries, you can come out with the family and do the “U-Pick” or “We Pick” option from May through July.
Strawberries are usually at their locations near Mother’s Day. Strawberry season typically lasts 3 to 4 weeks, but all of this depends on rain, sunshine and temperature. Please check their website and Facebook page for updates on when berries are available or listen to our automated message at (479)276-3559.

UP NEXT we are “Going a Different Whey”. We take a trip to the farm to learn about White River Creamery in Elkins, Arkansas. This family worked together after moving from the Los Angeles area to start a dairy farm and a new way of life. Together, they are now making some of the best cheese in Northwest Arkansas. Brooks goes back to the kitchen to create a chicken slider recipe using their Triple Pepper Halloumi Cheese and other local ingredients.
