Our mission at Sweet Eats Fruit Farm is to grow nutrient dense fruit; done responsibly; in an ecologically and ethical manner using practices that protect the environment and safeguard human health.
Sweet Eats Fruit Farm started in 2013 when I became tired of getting such terrible fruit in the grocery store. I wanted to open the eyes of Texans to realize we don’t have to accept the junk that you get in that those stores. We were just going to start with stonefruit (peaches, nectarines, plums, cherries), but a second property fell into our lap in 2014 that would be perfect for blueberries.
Figuring I bit off more than I could chew, Kory Craft was hired as the General Manager of the farm in summer of 2014.
During the winter of 2014, we planted 32,000 blueberry bushes and 5,500 fruit trees. We’ve were busy!
In 2017, we made the tough decision to close the blueberry location as our water well was too salty and we could not make a go of growing blueberries with salty water. One day we hope to circle back around to growing blueberries though.
Also in 2017 Kory and his family decided it was time for them to move back to Colorado to be closer to their family and spend more time with them. We hired Erin Klingemann as a program coordinator, but quickly realized her abilities were far beyond that and have promoted her to the Director of Agritourism.
