Devine Acres Farm is celebrating its 20th season this year. They now have 50+ activities including live music Saturdays and Sundays, groovy goat races, a trick cowboy show, gigantic jump pad, fishing, hayrides great food/drinks and TONS & TONS of pumpkins this October. New this year are the hilarious “Groovy Goat Races” and a renovated Silo where you can visit Santa and Mrs. Claus this year.
The Ken and Debi Capps family shared a little about how it all began: “In 2002 we picked up our little family of six, purchased 45 acres and moved back to our hometown. Although we had no farming experience, it seemed the perfect place to raise our children.
We were looking for a good use for our land and a way to supplement our teaching salaries, so the research began… We discovered that you can grow Christmas trees in Texas! Who knew? We quickly joined a tree growers association, learned all we could and planted our first 200 seedlings. Three years later we had some small (but lovely) trees ready to sell!
The pumpkin patch was our next adventure. We brought in some pumpkins and created some activities that we thought families would enjoy!”
The family farm soon became the most magical place in Devine, celebrating Christmas, Halloween and Easter each year.
“The fall season really took off! People enjoy being on a REAL working farm and the Christmas trees sure make a beautiful backdrop for the fall season!” Mr. and Mrs. Capps added.
“Eventually we became full time farmers and added field trips and a spring Easter season. Over the past twenty years we have grown our family from six to fourteen, grown thousands of Christmas trees, hauled in tons of pumpkins and hidden a zillion Easter eggs! All while adding buildings, lots of activities, live entertainment and yummy food and drink options. As you can imagine, all of these “additions” meant we needed more help! We have added many staff members over the years that we refer to as our farm family.
Come see us this fall and find out what’s new this year! We have brought in and are renovating an old silo. Why? Santa needed a permanent place to call home while on the farm, and we needed something very unique to celebrate our 20th season. Silo + celebration = SILOBRATION! We cannot wait for your family to visit Santa’s Silo this Christmas and enjoy a magical and memorable experience! But for now, you just might find Mrs. Claus on the farm this fall getting the silo all set up! After all, it’s always Christmas at Devine Acres Farm.
We want to thank all of our farm friends for your loyalty and allowing us to be a part of your family’s precious memories and time. We are still here because of all of you! Our goal has, and will always be, to create a family friendly atmosphere where memories can be made while enjoying God’s beautiful creation!”
