Welcome to the Grace Heritage Ranch (GHR) Standard Homestead Tour with Lunch page! This tour consists of our standard 2 ½ hour tour plus a catered lunch afterwards.
“The music and culture of northern Mexico are many times referred to as Norteno, a term that simply means “northern”. Although the Rio Grande River serves as an international boundary for the United States and Mexico, South Texas is considered part of “norteno culture.” – Dishes from the Wild Horse Desert by Melissa Guerra.
The Wild Horse Desert, or “South Texas” as it is now known, is home to a unique culinary culture based on northern Mexican cooking, but influenced by Anglo settlers. Our lunch menu consists of historically authentic recipes from the early days of settlement in this area. They are taken from the book Dishes from the Wild Horse Desert, Norteno cooking of South Texas by Melissa Guerra. These are foods that give this region its unique flavor!!
The meal is prepared by Dora from Raymondville’s C & M Market. She will cook for a minimum of 15, which also is the minimum number of people needed to reserve a private tour.
The price for this tour is $27.00 / person.
This meal fits our theme and helps accentuate the atmosphere here at Grace Heritage Ranch. It is still our standard 2 ½ hour tour, but then lunch is provided afterwards in the barn on picnic tables.
