Growers

We wouldn't have the Poteet Strawberry Festival without our local berry growers. Since the first festival in 1948, our growers have been cultivating the art of producing some of the finest berries in the US. The Poteet-grown strawberry is known for it's amazing sweetness. You'll know the minute you bite into one!

We want to make sure our guests get the genuine Poteet-grown berry. All local berries are in boxes which state "Fresh Produce-Poteet, Texas" during Festival Weekend.  The Poteet growers also have locations on the Festival Grounds to sell their berries.

We'll be posting additional information about where to buy authentic Poteet berries soon. In the meantime, click below to learn a little about our growers.

Linda and I have been growing strawberries in Poteet since 1978 and are currently the largest producer in the area with 16 acres. We have continued the family tradition of growing strawberries which was started by Linda's dad, Kenneth Hoffman, who began raising strawberries in the early 1950's.


Linda and I have won numerous awards for our strawberries at the annual Poteet Strawberry Festival including 5 Grand Champions and 8 Reserve Grand Champions straight which include Grand Champions for the last three years. We also furnish H.E.B. with the strawberries for their delicious "Poteet Strawberry" specialty ice cream.
