The largest wildflower farm in the nation is located in Fredericksburg, Texas, and is only a short drive from San Antonio. As 2020 continues and COVID-19 is still a part of our lives, many are looking for fun and safe socially distant activities to engage in. If you’re looking for a fun day trip to see some of the most beautiful wildflowers in the state of Texas, Wildseed Farms may be just the place for you to go.
Wildseed Farms is home to over 1,000 acres of beautiful wildflowers that are in bloom from March to October. These peak seasons often experience high volumes of foot traffic as families and friends across the state of Texas drive to see the breathtaking fields of natural flowers. A few of the many varietals grown at the farm are tulips, sunflowers, lavender, and poppies, and many others.
Once you’ve finished viewing the natural and gorgeous flowers, you can also head over to the Wildseed Farms Vineyard that is also on the property. The well-received winery is the perfect spot for a glass of something red and delicious after a relaxing experience with the wildflowers. The vineyard hours are from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm and you can also grab your beverage and sip it while you explore the scenic acres.
You won’t be able to take any of the flowers home, because picking Wildseed flowers is prohibited. However, those who love the flowers enough to grow some have the option to purchase wildflower seeds through the farm, so that you can create your own miniature flower farm when you get home. Many Texans are inspired by the gorgeous blooms to do the same thing at home. If you’re looking for a tranquil experience for your family and friends, you may enjoy experiencing the flowers, the vineyard, and the beauty that the two in tandem can create.
