Over the past few years the terms “culinary tourism,” “gastronomads,” and “farm to table” are heard often in the Upper East Side of Texas as people continue to embrace the need for fresh produce for better nutrition and tastier food.
“The best” is often debatable, but excellence speaks for itself. County Line Magazine established a hall of fame for the places and people in the Upper East Side of Texas that consistently win in the annual “best-of” balloting.
A real love for the “Old West” and keeping that spirit alive are qualities shared by a group of men and women from Winnsboro who delight in re-enacting living history for all to enjoy. The Legends of Crossroads represent the two crossing roads where the town of Winnsboro began in the early 1850’s. This non-profit group is made up of players who are all members of the Reenactment Guild of America.
In the not so distant past, for anyone looking to decorate a home, a trip to Dallas would be in order. This is no longer the case, as the Upper East Side of Texas has stepped up its game when it comes to home décor.
After hearing positive word of mouth about this fine cuisine restaurant in Winnsboro, it was time to visit Liefie Li Vine.
The unique fare was accompanied by live music just outside on a cozy, covered back porch.
Hands down one of the absolute best things about the Upper East Side of Texas is its farmers and the produce they offer direct from their farms or at community markets where they bring their fresh produce to consumers. From tomatoes, peas, squash, okra, peppers, onions, watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries, peaches, wine, honey, dairy, and meats, this part of the country is famous for the best-tasting fresh food found anywhere.
Twinkle lights glow like fireflies in the white wash cabinet shelves. Fresh carrot cake waits under the cake dome in the center of an old farm table. Slow music plays from the living room. Soft laundered towels hang in the bathroom ready to wash the day away. Welcome home, weary traveler. This is the greeting when a new guest enters The Farmhouse at Hunter’s Moon Farm in Winnsboro, an oasis bed and breakfast tucked in the piney woods.
