Beautiful place to picnic

We grabbed some sandwiches in town and ate in the shade of some huge cottonwood trees surrounded by beautiful Iris flowers. A simple and calm respite from a busy vacation.

Though you turn at MM 284 off Hwy 70, it is a bit down a narrow lane; easy to miss. Iris were no longer blooming, only saw the dead flowers and lots of weeds. The promised summer wild flowers were very sketchy at best. Found one pretty scene, phlox in bloom, but that was it. Only entertaining thing was watching... More

I have had many chances to visit but this is the first time I was able to visit while the iris had this many blooms. I love that they have so many informed people working the grounds. The gift shop is amazing too!

The plantings are done by availability and selection. Each plant has a description post, and you can take a map with you. The variety is unexpected, not only the beautiful iris of many types, but also Southwestern plants, even smoke trees. The art gallery is very nice, and the selection in the gift shop is delightful. Hand-made jewelry, kids toys... More

The staff were inviting and friendly and very knowledgeable. They have a Hummingbird porch where you can just hang out and the hummingbirds will buzz all around one almost landed on my hand. The Gallery/Store is excellent and their prices are actually good unlike a lot of attractions where they price gouge. They not only have the Iris section but... More

It was the 2nd weekend of May and a perfect time to visit the Iris Farm. I was delighted to read all the different names for the varieties of irises. If you are looking to add new irises to your flower garden, this is the place! Be sure to also browse the Gallery.

We really enjoyed this place. We stopped in and visited with the owner for quite some time. Our kids enjoyed seeing all the little snails running around and we loved how beautiful it was. We were there at a time that the flowers had already bloomed but we will make it a point to return next year when they are... More

We made an unscheduled stop in route to somewhere else along highway between Roswell and Ruidoso. Grounds are absolutely lovely and worth the stop. Do not judge by look from road. The gift shop is equally surprising. Donation for garden upkeep accepted which was well worth it as gardens beautiful. Mail order for Irises available but not really interested in... More

We were here over Memorial Day weekend, and the place was breathtaking, with all kinds and colors of irises in bloom. It is a lovely oasis of calm in a most unexpected place. They have a catalogue, and you can pick out the plants you want for them to ship in mid summer. There is a Rose garden, beautiful smoke... More

We visited the Hondo Iris Farm this month (May) and were absolutely thrilled to see all the beautiful flowers in bloom and not just irises. We were also pleasantly surprised by the friendly and ever so knowledgeable Alice. She helped pick out a few plants, answered all my questions and took us through her shop. I left with more than...
