We went with another couple and were able to go on one of their wine tours. Very informative and interesting; highly recommended if you are interested in seeing how the wine is processed.

Just to see how people lived and cooked back in the day and had farm animals and actual vegetable farms is amazing. The ladies preparing food for the grounds workers is nice in that the workers don't have to leave to get food and they get to beat home made fresh baked bread. The farm is part of the LBJ... More

Lots of neat things at the farm-home tour-animals, gardens, kids will love it. They have the authentic famhouse and barn with all the cattle, chickens, and other animals. Sometimes they have a blacksmith there and everyone is in costume and gives tours of the farm. There is also a gift shop at the state park and a movie and this... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Sauer-Beckmann Farm. The staff is dressed in period clothing and were so helpful and informative. Our group ask lots of questions and they knew the answers to everyone. It is also a very hands on experience and a great area for the kiddos to run around.

A great experience to show suburbanite kiddos what life in the Texas Hill Country was like on a historic farm and ranch. Very cool to see the hens, roosters and farm animals in a working farm environment. When combined with the LBJ NPS visit and tour of the Texas White House - this a is great, educational afternoon.

See life 100 years ago - how families thrived without electricity in the hot and humid Texas weather! Visit to see the original stone structures, hand built by the German-Texan families in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Amazing what they had to do to survive - preserving foods such as milk, fruits and vegetables - while growing/selling cotton and... More

Visiting this living history farmstead was like stepping back in time to my great-grandparents farm. The volunteers who staff the farm are very friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable about the day to day life of the family who lived there in the time period. It is especially wonderful to visit on the only night the farmstead is open for a night... More

Living in a medium-size city, I seldom get a chance to take a look at farm life especially as it existed over 100 years ago. At this attraction you will find an old barn and a farmhouse which grew over the years as the size of the family increased. We saw chickens and roosters and a couple of turkeys on... More

On the third Sunday in December, the farm is open for tours in the evening from 7-9 p.m. There are samples of baked goods at the farm. Plenty of guides to answer questions.
