Interesting. Struck me as a hippie place where some folks decided to grow flowers and host a garden. Not much to see in Sept as it was past good flower season. No cost to look around, just a little bit of through back place from years gone by. Worth the stop to stretch your legs but don't make a special... More

The owners are a delight. The gardens and shop are absolutely amazing. This hidden Jem is a must stop on HWY 70/380. We love it, we stop every time we are out riding our bikes. Nice cool place to have a rest! Thank you for building such an oasis in the valley!

The Iris were in bloom in May when we visited. We spent about (2) hours here admiring the various colors. The garden is well-maintained and a beautiful spot for a picnic. There were a few ladies painting in the garden while we were there, they even allowed us to view their progress. The owner and gardener were so helpful in... More

They are still going strong in my parents front yard! :) This is a nice little sanctuary filled with all sorts of interesting bugs and birds. We spent most of our time watching the... More

Found out about this place a few years back and finally got to visit it. My Fiance is a huge fan of Iris and we have a lot of it in our backyard, and she'd been dying to go there. The selection of Iris is pretty vast, and the prices aren't bad for those interested in buying. If you don't... More

The Iris Farm was a small place off the side of the road just outside of Hondo, NM. Small but well manicured and maintained with pretty blooming irises of many varieties. On sight is the gallery of the owner who paints, sculptures and designs the paintings, clothing and jewelry. The manager of the gallery is a tiny but colorful lady... More
