Mission and Vision
Historically significant and protecting an irreplaceable freshwater source, the Herff Farm is a vibrant hub that provides access to outdoor learning for children and a model for land stewardship for the greater community.
Visit Herff Farm to connect to the past, present and future of living in harmony with the land. Owned and managed by the Cibolo Center for Conservation, the Herff Homestead is 60 acres of historically significant land, trails, and inspiration gardens that are open to the public on Saturdays (March-October) during the Farmers Market at the Cibolo. Check their calendar for an assortment of educational and recreational events that the whole family will enjoy.
Herff Farm is a gathering place offering public events, community gardens, a Farmers Market and hiking opportunities. It also serves as a natural laboratory for sustainable modern living—a place where children and adults learn how to protect our precious natural resources. Perfect for weddings and any small to medium size groups, the Historic Herff Homestead is full of charm.
Purchased in 1854 by German Ferdinand Herff, the 10,000 acre Herff Farm was one of Boerne’s first settlements by European immigrants. Today, the Herff Farm keeps our past alive on 60 acres at the confluence of the Cibolo and Menger Creeks. The Homestead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
