Each weekend through the harvest season, YesterLand Farm welcomes visitors of all ages to explore several acres’ worth of classic country activities, whether they’re just experiencing their first falling leaves or feeling nostalgic for autumns of old. More than 30 attractions spring up around the open fields, from a restored 1952 miniature train to a small ferris wheel and a vintage rollercoaster. As explorers try to navigate a corn maze’s dense stalks, guests can head to collect gourds to make into smaller pumpkins. Both when the sky starts to darken and during the day, Yesterland stays aglow with handheld beams in the flashlight maze and campfires, around which visitors roast hot dogs and s’mores over terrifying tales of ghosts and deciding college majors.
Everything that needs to be said about The Victorian House is in its name. The home exudes the elegance of the bygone era, with its steeple-roof chapel, historic architecture, and expansive lawns. It's frequently the host of weddings both simple and extravagant; besides the chapel, there's a vast reception room for post-ceremony parties, and an outdoor gazebo features prominently in many of the wedding parties' pictures. Private dressing cottages hide the bride from the groom as they prepare for the ceremony; the bride donning her dress, the groom fixing his tie, and the priest preparing his t-shirt launcher. The chapel, where most ceremonies take place, boasts three large arched windows behind the altar where light filters into the room, and large candelabras fill the area with dim, intimate light.
Bob Landon has been making wine for decades, but he didn't always have French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks at his disposal. His first forays into small-batch winemaking took place in his basement, but like Batman's love of justice, his hobby was soon elevated to a profession. Today, he and the Landon Winery staff cultivate Texas–grown viognier and tempranillo grapes into a rotating selection of house varietals.
At either location, oenophiles can deepen their knowledge of wines or simply explore the facilities. The McKinney location features an old well that dates back more than 150 years, and the 15,000 square foot Greenville location boasts more than 100 oak barrels filled with grapey blends and one batch of orange juice just pretending. Landon Winery also hosts events and classes that allow visitors to pair wines with food, sample sips, and make their own custom wines.
