Visiting Welburn Gourd Farm

Yesterday I took a drive in the direction of Temecula, a popular wine-growing region about an hour southeast of my home in Orange.  Temecula wasn’t my destination, though…. Welburn Gourd Farm, with an address listed in Fallbrook, was. Veering off highway I-15, I headed somewhat southwest-ish along a narrow, winding, up and down road hoping my GPS navigation wouldn’t fail me in the “middle of nowhere”. It did. Fail me. It’s times like those I kick myself for not having printed out the directions… depending solely on modern technology can sometimes be a problem. Luckily (yes, with luck), I found my destination!

You’ll find the gallery down below has LOTS of pictures. I was so enthralled with the farm I couldn’t stop clicking the camera. I’d had no idea what to expect, but seeing the endless rows of dried or drying gourds was mind-boggling. The beautiful works of art on display in the shop even more mind-boggling.

I was first made aware of Welburn Gourd Farm during a recent visit to the Orange County Fair. The farmyard barn had a beautiful gourd display and two wonderfully friendly ladies offering information. We chatted for quite a while, and when asked where a person finds gourds, I was told about Welburn Gourd Farm. At that moment, I added it to my list of “must explore” places. The five pictures below were taken at the Fair.

I highly recommend a drive in the country to Welburn Gourd Farm, but take my advice, and print out the directions before you leave home! ~SueBee

    If gourds are your thing, this is obviously the place to go. It looks wonderful.

      It was quite an eye-opener. I had no idea there was such interest in gourds! Live and learn… and have fun doing it!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
