Welcome agritourism guests. Once Cook Ranch, this over grazed land is being revitalized. Located in unicorporated Hays co., in the center of the county, and north of Wimberley on a Upick Blackberry and Bee Farmstead. check in must be scheduled for check in day between 2pm - 5pm. Now an organic and pesticide free garden, Bee and Berry Farm, our home is surrounded by Texas Hill Country wilderness our guests will enjoy. Amazing night sky views and a wake up to incredible nature. Primitive camping or self contained campers, stay on the ledge of our hill side, away from the hives and north of our farmhouse. A game fence protects our guests from wildlife, and our recapped and graded hard packed limestone road base driveways lead you up to sites to choose from. Under the stars, under some oaks, on the Stoney Ridge overlooking a fossil line, or under some cedars, at the barn... all have great privacy. Toilet port a john, and the barn sink accessible 24 hours. Hipcampers are to follow trash and biosecurity rules on premises. Honeybee yards are located far south of the campsites, no trespassing around the livestock. Extremely quiet, peaceful and wild, your view of Wimberley valley on our mountainside hike, and a visit to Jacobs Well Nature Preserve on Mount Sharp Road will make this stop worth it, as we are only an 8 min slow drive to Jacobs Well Preserve. Welcome to our Bee and Berries Farm. Book now! Tent pads are level decks, all other sites are a slight incline https://www.facebook.com/events/435750068931444/?ref=newsfeed Sat May 25th Rodeo Additionally you can take advantage of local wineries, distilleries, farms, historical centers, parks and activities listed below. We have some farm cottage industry produce for sale and fresh eggs on site, as well as extras like farm breakfasts or a tour. 2.8 miles away is Jacobs Well Spring Nature Preserve and cenote, 6 miles, and a 12 min drive away is the private swimming hole at Cypress Falls, and their taco bar / tavern http://thelodgeatcypressfalls.com/swimming-hole Jobelle Bistro and Hildees Diner are also nearby for meals. Grocery in town is a 15 min. drive. 8 miles away is the famous City Park, Blue Hole swimming and recreation area, check city for hours https://www.cityofwimberley.com/289/Swimming-Reservations. Play ground, soccer field, trails, bb court... 20 miles away, situated along a one-mile stretch of the spring-fed Blanco River, the small but mighty Blanco State Park is very family-friendly, offering the spectacular Falls Dam, nature trails, fishing, tubing, kayaking, and deep water for a good, refreshing swim. The stocked river is teeming with largemouth and Guadalupe bass, catfish, sunfish, and rainbow trout, and can be an excellent place for beginning anglers (you can even borrow equipment for free). Swimming at holes, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, and birding are a few of the quintessential outdoor Texan activities visitors enjoy most at Pedernales State Park, located near the area of Texas Hill Country where former President Lyndon B. Johnson grew up. Next to the famed Pedernales River, the park is an hour west of Austin, an hour east of Fredericksburg, and about 20 minutes from downtown Johnson City. Wineries and distilleries are a short drive away in nearby Dripping Springs and Stonewall. No dogs allowed at the camp.

The host was very welcome and we got an upgrade to our site. She went out of her way to give us a good time. We got to learn a lot about farm life and all. Would go again 100%

Delightful stay
Teresa's place felt quiet and sheltered. Because of the eclipse, there were multiple other campers, but we were able to camp out of sight of others between a stand of trees and a beautiful green field. The roosters start crowing pretty early in the morning, so be aware of that. Teresa's home-cooked flan with eggs from her chickens is fabulous! The warm outdoor shower was a treat. Teresa was obviously working the land and the bees, but was friendly and willing to take a break to share her knowledge and experience with visitors.

Everything was perfect! Best outdoor shower ever. Pete and Teresa were the best hosts. Incredible quiche, and the flan…just say yes! We loved the chickens clucking around. Fantastic riding right from their ranch! Thank you guys so much!

Teresa and Pete welcomed us and gave us a tour of the property to show us the amenities. We texted Teresa our eta and she sent us a code specific to us for gate access, it was nice to have that level of security and prompt, understandable communication. All the instructions and information she sent were spot on. The farm breakfast was amazing and a great value; coffee/tea, homemade zucchini chocolate bread, bacon, mini quiches, oatmeal, farm strawberries and honey in a delicate honeycomb. So yummy and we got to hangout and talk to them about the farm and the area. We stayed in one of the front field sites for eclipse viewing. Friendly locals would wave and honk as they drove by; Teresa told us it's a longstanding Texas courtesy to honk when you drive through a property on a ranch road. We saw wildlife and livestock - the longhorns across the road were characters and we enjoyed watching them. Our comfort and safety were obviously a consideration on the ranch. I really enjoyed getting to know Teresa and Pete. I will definitely be back and look forward to seeing the improvements and revival of the land.
