Sides Pea Farm began in 1957 when Winford and Virginia Sides bought 70 acres just south of Canton, Texas and began farming squash, tomatoes, potatoes, okra, watermelons, cantaloupes, peas, and beans. Winford soon realized he was much better at raising peas and beans than anything else. So he decided to focus on strictly on peas and beans and soon became the largest grower of fresh market peas in the state of Texas.
Since 1957, Sides Pea Farm has grown larger every year and now hundreds of acres of peas. You can find Sides Pea Farm fresh peas all over Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
