Welcome to our farm…
We are Chris and Kylie Demases, owners of Pecan Creek Strawberry Farm. While we are somewhat new to the area, we are not new to farming.

Chris Demases is a fourth generation farmer and grew up just down the highway in Boyd, Tx. His parents own a 70+ acre produce farm, Demases Farm, in Boyd, TX. Chris’ great grand father came from Greece and began farming in Arlington, TX and the family then moved to Boyd in the 1980s. Years and years of tradition and work ethic have been passed down to him. From the time Chris could walk, he was in the fields working. After college, Chris began working full time on the produce farm where he, helped start up the retail stand on site, and was also the forefront of getting into the DFW farmers market scene. While working along side his father, mother, and brother, Chris decided to try something new; grow strawberries. After doing hours of research and attending conferences, Chris began growing strawberries three years ago. He saw the demand as well as the desire of the customers to not only buy fresh strawberries, but pick them too. That’s when the decision was made to branch away from his family’s business, and start on his new independent adventure, Pecan Creek Strawberry Farm.
Kylie Demases has been married to Chris Demases for almost 6 years, but has been around his farming family and lifestyle for almost 12 years. She has helped Chris’s family with their produce farm, and even acted as their social media director and farm stand manager. She works as a Labor and Delivery RN and helps with the farm on her days off. While able to help in the fields, her main focus is social media and creative director. When the idea to branch out and form a pick-your-own strawberry farm was conceived, Chris and Kylie knew Pilot Point, Tx would be the ideal spot. Pecan Creek Strawberry Farm is located on Kylie’s grandmother’s land that has been in her family for over 100 years. She along with Kylie’s father and step-mother all live here in Pilot Point.
So while the decision was made to start on an independent adventure, their roots run deep in tradition and hold true to family values.
