Fredericksburg Herb Farm

On our recent trip to the Texas Hill Country we stopped at one of my favorite places, the Fredericksburg Herb Farm.



What a charming place this is and the new additions are beautiful.  We have been visiting there for several years and have watched the progress the new owners have made since purchasing the property.





There is a new beautiful spa,  cute little Sunday Cottages and a newly renovated  restaurant, making it a fabulous destination for couples or girlfriends!




When we first "discovered" the herb farm the property had a large herb and flower garden behind the historic main house.   The family grew herbs for their upscale restaurant and sold plants.  In the early Spring they hosted an herb festival and offered
 herb seminars.   


  


The new owners kept a small herb garden and the adorable gift shop that sells plants, gift items and candles.  


The handmade candles are wonderful and each visit I purchase them for myself and friends.  The essential oils are strong and my favorites scents are the lemongrass with lavender.





The Sunday Cottages are adorable with rocking chair porches and porch swings.  They have a two night minimum to stay there and our schedule this visit didn't allow us to stay both nights.   (Insert sad face)



Fredericksburg is a great place to shop, relax and just enjoy the hill country and it's a quick drive to Austin or San Antonio if you need the big city!

  1. Oh I love Fredricksburg, it is such a cute little town. My best friend use to live there, so I have the fondest of memories of visiting. I did some awesome antiqueing in that place too. This looks like such a great place to visit and I love the Sunday Houses. Hugs, Marty

  8. What a charming place, Sonia; it looks right up my alley! A pretty herb garden, cute cottages, and a gift shop -- what's not to love? :) My in-laws have been to Austin and Fredericksburg, but I've never been. I'm adding this to my list of must-see places now.

    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!
