Medina Texas Hill Country Real Estate

Medina Texas real estate offers excellent vacation properties, Median TX ranches and farms, and full time and seasonal real estate.  Along U.S. 87N or TX 16, Median is about an hour southwest of Fredericksburg TX homes, our SAGE – Premium Texas Real Estate offices, and our charming downtown Main Street.

Frequented by visitors to Texas ranches and country homes, Medina borders some of Texas Hill Country’s most rugged and beautiful territory, a favorite for hiking, fishing, and water sports.  The drive from Medina TX homes to Garner State Park passes through the Medina, Sabinal, and Frio river valleys.

Medina homes are in Bandera County 12 miles northwest of Bandera at State Highway 16 and Farm Road 337, not to be confused with real estate in Medina County, which is southeast of the area.  The Hill Country real estate first settled in 1865 around a lumber mill and soon blossomed into a full-service town.

Now a flourishing apple-producing community in the heart of Bandera County, Medina has been making headlines for about 30 years thanks to the creativity of Baxter and Carol Adams.  The Adams’s first began experimenting with dwarf apple trees in 1981, discovering Texas Hill Country real estate is perfect for growing apples on dwarf trees.  The apples grow full size and are extra sweet and juicy.  The smaller trees allowed the Adams to plant 1,000 to 2,400 trees on one acre.

Today tourists drop by Adam’s Love Creek Orchards in Medina to pick up baskets of the delicious fruit as well as tasty butters and jellies, syrups, cider and vinegar, apple ice cream, and fresh-baked apple pies.  A variety of juicy specimens of apples come from Medina—the Lone Star Little Sugar Gala to Crispin, Jonagold, Pink Lady, Mollies, Jonathans, Granny Smith, and Fuji.  Visitors also discover a selection of apple trees for sale.

The fruit ripens from June through November.  Other Medina farms followed the lead of the Adams Family and the community produces over a hundred tons of apples annually.  In 1989, the Texas Department of Agriculture declared Medina the Apple Capital of Texas.

The Medina Independent School District serves students in the area.
