Ever wondered how great it would be to live on a farm or ranch? Or wondered how the goats and other animals are fed and cared for? Is raising livestock difficult? Come and visit the farm at Bankersmith and Grapetown Vineyard in Fredericksburg Texas and get a behind-the scenes look at the complex operations and interactions of a working farm! We raise Boer, Nigerian Dwarf, African Pygmy and Saanen Dairy Goats, Zebras, Alpacas, Camels and even some Donkeys.
Tour pickup is at Bankersmith Saloon at 7905 Old San Antonio Road, Fredericksburg Texas 78624. Please arrive slightly early. While you wait for your tour at Bankersmith you may grab some food or a libation and meet the goats on the front and back of the property (behind the historic dance hall). Please be understanding if the tour guide is late. On the tours we must take time to safely maneuver with animals and passengers. We may be tending to livestock or waiting on other guests.
Lunch and Dinner are not included in your tour, but are available for purchase before or after your tour. Lunch and dinner are served at Bankersmith from Noon to 8 pm on Friday and Saturday during the Farm Tours, so plan on enjoying some great food and libations before or after your Farm Tour.
Much of the behind the scenes experience will take place at Grapetown Vineyard and Farm across the street from Bankersmith. On this property, we also have a Tasting Room where we serve award winning wines and great artisan pizzas. Both locations, Bankersmtih and Grapetown, have play areas for the kids to enjoy!
