An Oasis!
Jul 2019
I read about this place when checking out the general area but could not be there in May or early June when the Iris would be in full bloom. Even so, it was such a beautiful, serene place that we were really thrilled we went. In addition to the Iris gardens, there is a "fairy garden" which was whimsical and lots of fun to walk through. Additionally there is an artists' shop with beautiful handmade jewelry, interesting arty clothing, art prints and pottery that is located in a really interesting old building. There are picnic tables and seats throughout the gardens making it a lovely place to bring your lunch and sit in the beauty and quiet of nature. If you are in the area, go and visit. You won't be sorry!

Small Flower Farm
May 2019
For this to work you need to time it right. I went for the flowers as I love gardening and colorful flowers. The irises we saw were beautiful, unfortunately many were not in bloom, so we saw some which were already done and others which had not yet opened. Half an hour was enough time for us.

I’m a gardener so couldn’t pass this place. The iris were not in bloom but they have the most beautiful collection of jewelry, clothes and accessories in their gallery gift shop.

What a surprise!!

Unfortunately the Iris' were not blooming when we were there. However, the grounds, the fairy forest and the bridge the troll was under, the picnic area, all was just wonderful. Inside the gift shop was art, hand made jewelry, clothing, rocks, and many other things that were just hard to pass up. It is a true gem that must not be passed up if you are in the area.

Great place for picnic lunch
Jul 2018 • Couples
Lincoln County Deputy suggested this place as a walking, picnic stop. We were amazed at the beauty of the Iris and Lily plants...had our sandwiches at one of the picnic tables next to the rows of Iris and Lily plants. Still enough blooms to make a lovely setting. Then, we wandered into the Fairie Forest....many different scenarios with miniature fairies. Colorful areas for children to play and adults to sit. As we left, the owner asked us how we liked the Fairie forest. He was a very nice man who will take time to visit. And the best part: IT IS FREE!!!

WOW-Stunning Iris and Other Flowers Outdoors and Also Huge Art Gallery Indoors
May 2018 • Solo
I was here in mid May and the iris were amazing in varieties, colors, and quantity. I took so many lovely photographs. Easy to find-just off milepost 284 on Hwy 70 and there is a huge parking area that can accommodate oversized vehicles. Once I crossed the road to where the gardens were, I did not want to leave. Although iris were the stars of the show in May, there were wildflowers and native plants also blooming. The iris beds were laid out in such a way you could get close to see the iris up close. Benches were provided and even picnic tables if you brought a lunch. Hummingbirds were enjoying the area too.
As if the gardens were not enough of a reason to stop, there was also a house where owner Alice Warder Seely who not only paints and sculpts, but designs and creates beautiful jewelry features her own work as well as that of others. There is a huge variety of items for sale at what I felt were very reasonable prices. I spent about one and a half hours between the gardens and the gallery. Admission is free. They have catalogues where you can purchase iris. I highly recommend a stop here.

An oasis of beauty
May 2018 • Couples
We stopped in with our RV on our way out of Ruidoso. It was the highlight of my day! The rows and rows of irises are just spectacular, and I bought several as gifts for my mom and sister-in-law. The owner has also designed gorgeous pewter jewelry and sells it in the little shop. It is a true gem hidden along HWY 70 that is a must-see for anyone with an appreciation for nature's beauty

Jaw dropping beauty!!
May 2018 • Family
I stopped at the Hondo Iris Farm on my way to Roswell, New Mexico. It is absolutely beautiful. If you love flowers, being outside, picnics, taking photographs, entertaining children or just listening to your own thoughts then THIS is the place for you! Apparently the month of May is the perfect time to see the different varieties of irises. I spent 1.5 hours taking photos and enjoying the irises. I went back a few days later with my grandsons and they loved it too. There is a special Fairy Garden for children that is darling. This will be a fun thing to do EVERY May from now on.

Want to go back
Jul 2017 • Couples
Stopped by knowing that we had long missed the "show". The farm is laid out with a presentation of a wide variety of irises as well as other plants. A peaceful area. The gift shop is in an old, and I assume, adobe house. Clothing and other items are available for purchase. Staff is friendly and informative. Not hard to find. Want to return in May for the blooms.

Irises, hummingbirds, jewelry, textiles, clothing, pottery, glasswork
Jul 2017 • Solo
I was here in July so past the iris blooming period. But everthing mentioned above is still there for you to enjoy. You can picnic at one of the tables with the sound of flowing water as a backdrop while enjoying nature, including the fast flight of many hummingbirds.

Go inside and you are in a house where every room, including upstairs, showcases some form of art - work with metal, wood, stone, ceramic, textiles, fabrics, glass - there is something here for anyone.
