Welcome to my Farm - Texas Tour


Last week my producer friend Hannah and I headed out of town on a Texas road trip to promote my new TV show Welcome to my Farm and also my latest book 101 Chicken Keeping Hacks.

We flew to San Antonio where we had our first margaritas of the trip (when in Texas, right?!) and some awesome Mexican food at La Margarita at the downtown Market and then spent the next few days crisscrossing the Lone Star State visiting Waco, Robinson, Harlingen and finally Houston. 

We even stopped in to Baylor University for a surprise visit! We snagged a couple of first class seats for the flight back to Maine and arrived just after midnight Thursday.

It was pretty crazy for these New England girls to realize that we drove for over 14 hours last week and never even left the state of Texas! 

(Conversely, I drove just over three hours this weekend and managed to hit four New England states: Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island) But anyway...they do say everything is bigger in Texas, even the state itself!

We had such a fun week, but sadly, it seemed that the Maine weather followed us South, because it was only in the 20s and 30s the first two days we were there... and unfortunately we had left all our winter clothing back in Maine! 

I mean, who knew it would be so cold in Texas in March? But like all good New Englanders, we know how to layer, so we managed to keep from freezing! 

Although it was a business trip, we managed to squeeze in a trip to Magnolia Market and the Silos as well as the Bakery for cupcakes (yay!). 

I had been before, but I had never eaten at Magnolia Table, so it was a real treat to have Travis from Farm + Yard treat us to lunch there! 

The candied bacon and deviled eggs appetizer was so delicious, as were all of our lunches and the bread basket with whipped strawberry butter. I highly recommend stopping by if you're in the area. 

They don't take reservations, so the wait for a table is likely going to be a bit long, but we used our 90-minute wait and took the opportunity to visit Jo's original shop on Bosque Boulevard

I loved being able to see the door to her original office - yes its a sliding barn door (of course!) and yes the walls are shiplapped.

It was such a wonderful trip and I would like to thank San Antonio Living, CBS4 NEWS Rio Grande Valley and Great Day Houston to having me. I always welcome the opportunity to talk about chickens! 

I did something new this time and we brought chicks to one of the shows instead of grown hens. They did SO well, but were exhausted after their TV debut!
