We'll be picking pounds of tasty strawberries and having a picnic at the farm before coming back to Austin. The Foodies did this meetup a few years ago, and it was so much fun.
I plan to leave Austin at about 8:30 to arrive by 9:30 to get the best picking. Trickle in later if you wish. Let's meet at 12 to have lunch at the picnic tables. Please remember to BRING CASH to pay for your berries! Or check, but they do not accept credit cards.

IF your directions point you down rd 1855: then continue on 1855 (which has a name change to 120) and turn onto CR 123 (it only turns to the South) , stay on this road, don't turn off of it, 123 turns into fm 1980 and you will come to Sweet Berry Farm on the left side of the road.
IF your directions have you leave Marble Falls on 1431: DON'T TURN right onto CR 122, stay on FM1431 to the next red light (which is FM1980), turn right onto fm1980, Sweet Berry Farm is 1.25 miles on the right.
