Denton Valley Farms Visit

We spent our Sunday afternoon out in the country on this beautiful sunny day, visiting Denton Valley Farms. If you haven’t been out there, the Denton Valley farm store is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The grounds consist of a fantastic, large wedding & special event venue, surrounded by gorgeous rows of grape vines, peach trees and areas of other gardening delicacies.  Colby & Mandy’s farm store sells delicious fresh peaches, fresh grape juice and jellies, homemade ice cream, and blackberries at this time, with cantaloupe, watermelon, peas, okra and squash coming in the near future.  The store offers other local and surrounding area products, as well.  Mandy & Colby are the sweetest and most gracious hosts and you are sure to enjoy a fun afternoon during your visit.

TREAT YOURSELF & ENJOY!!!
