Right on the southern edge of the Sam Houston National Forest, Wood Duck Farm sits atop pretty rich soil. The farmers work the land to produce salad greens, herbs, and vegetables that are ready for market, often shipping their goods directly to "white tablecloth" restaurants throughout Texan metropolises. It's a working farm, but each fall the public gets a chance to visit as the farmers put on their Fall Festival. Attractions include tractor-drawn hayrides, a maze to explore, bottle-feeding baby calves, and, most recently, a zipline that gives you the chance to experience agriculture as a bird would: pretty fast, from kind of high up, and with no possible way to understand exactly what's happening beneath you.
