Crop Information - Planting & Harvesting

Texas leads all other states in number of farms and ranches. While the primary crops of Texas are cotton, corn, feed grains (sorghum, milo, etc.), rice and wheat, there is still an abundance of every other form of crop grown here. From peanuts, to sunflowers to sugarcanes to more. An enormous variety of vegetable fields can be found in the Rio Grande Valley at almost all times of the year.

Regional Crops Timeline 

From December to March, there are virtually no tall crops in the state. Wheat is at its peak in June-July, while corn and cotton are harvested slightly later (August-December). There are occasional exceptions to every rule, however, and we’re happy to try to find any kind of crop, any time of year.

In addition to crops, there are plenty of fruit and pecan orchards here, as well as a number of beautiful vineyards.
