Farms & Vineyards

"Wine can of their wits the wise beguile, Make the sage frolic, and the serious smile"

- Homer

Eagle Fork Vineyards

Visit our winery early in the morning, stand beside the cold mountain stream that borders our vineyard and you will hear the delicate soft sound of classical music that wake our grapes each and every new day. Come sit on the outdoor pavilion of our tasting room and enjoy the breathtaking views and fresh mountain air while trying our fine hand crafted wine!

Crane Creek Vineyards

At Crane Creek Vineyards, we like to think that wines made from our grapes are an expression of our unique area. More than 20 acres acres of vines are planted in a variety of grapes, including the European varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. We then craft these fruits of our passion into the finest possible wine. We love what we do and enjoy sharing our passion.

"When a goat likes a book, the whole book is gone, and the meaning has to go find an author again."

High Mountain Meadows Farm

At High Mountain Meadows Farm & Creamery you’ll find French Alpine (dairy) goats, Boer (meat) goats, rabbits, and chickens – all raised right there on the farm. The delicious creamy cheeses that Donna and her team produce are known throughout our little corner of the mountains and Donna is happy to share her knowledge about cheese-making and care for dairy/meat goats. Go for a visit and take a walk with the goats up the mountain!

Southern Cross Alpacas

Southern Cross Alpacas started as a venture between two friends that share a love for people as well as animals. We love to share our knowledge and on a visit to the farm you’ll not only learn all about raising alpacas, but also get up close and personal with the Southern Cross herd. Family-friendly, kids of all ages are enchanted by these gentle creatures. And no one can resist digging their fingers into that soft, fluffy fleece!

"The simple hearth of the small farm is the true center of our universe"
