One of the most famous farms nearby Grapeland is Elliott Family Farm. They specialize in Southern peas (especially purple hull and cream peas), grain, and milled flours. Moreover, the family has been farming since 1854. Currently, they are transitioning to organic. This means that they use no chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Also, their Southern peas are sold fresh shelled by the gallon, quart, and pint, or unshelled by the bushel basket. Furthermore, they shell, force air clean, and bag their product. A satisfied customer said, "I baked oatmeal cooking using the oats that we got from your farm, and the kids loved them!"
