Bankersmith, TX - Fun Place In The Texas Hill Country For Kids and Adults Alike [Giveaway]

Bankersmith Farm Tour
“Welcome home!” we were greeted when we set foot in Bankersmith, TX, located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, about halfway between Fredericksburg and Comfort. The old railroad town was founded in 1913 but was abandoned and turned into a ghost town by the 1940s.

Today, Bankersmith is a unique event venue with a wooden live music dance hall, a saloon and restaurant/bar, a large patio area with lawn games, picnic tables, fire pits, a playground area for kids, and farm animals incl. goats, pigs, turkeys, chickens, bunnies, cats, who like to be fed and petted.

Crowe’s Nest Farm – A Must-Do With Your Kids

Did you know that vultures are the only birds that can smell?

Have you ever milked or watched someone milk a cow?

Have you ever wondered why male birds are prettier than female birds?

Would you believe us if we told you that pigs are some of the smartest and cleanest animals around?

Have you ever witnessed the birth of a brand new calf?

We experienced and learned about all of the above and more from Farmer Dave and Farmer Chris during our visit of Crowe’s Nest Farm.
