The Wildflower homestead is built on the foundation of three ethical principles: caring for the earth, caring for ourselves, and sharing abundance. We aim to combine sustainable agriculture, landscape design, and ecology to work with nature rather than against it in designing gardens and grounds that thrive with minimal intervention. We emphasize native and drought tolerant plants and trees, practice rain water & solar energy harvesting, recycling, composting, animal husbandry, and the common-sense idea of eating what grows well locally and celebrating what is in season.

In addition to our gardens and the grounds around the Inn, we also manage the surrounding 20 acres of forest and meadows for wildlife. We are working to conserve and restore habitat for native plant and animal species and to maintain ecological processes, functions, diversity, and productivity of this land over time. Guests are invited to enjoy the nature trail that meanders through this very special piece of the Texas Hill Country.
Our talented team of Wildflower Women make most of our own natural cleaning products for the Inn, and grow vegetables, herbs and fresh cut flowers for our guests to enjoy. Additionally we create an array of handcrafted products including beautiful soaps, bath teas, scrubs, lotion bars, tea blends, art and much more....stop by our gift shop & check them out!
