Hill Country Rustic Farm Events and Weddings

If you are looking in the Hill Country for the perfect spot to host a rustic farm event, look to Welfare, 10 minutes from Boerne and 30 minutes from San Antonio, Texas. The staff at Welfare can help you put together any kind of event you can think of. Whether you are looking to host a group of 10 or 150, they have everything you need to bring an unforgettable night to life. Picture a birthday in the Bier Garten in the arbor, a family reunion under the 400 year old, or a candlelit anniversary dinner in the Hofner Room. Even a rehearsal dinner for 20 or 100 works great in the old post office or the barn. The rustic hill country farm setting makes the possibilities endless. Indoors or out – if you can dream it we can make it happen. Welfare – where love, history and nature come together.

If you are a corporate planner there is more than 5,000 sq. ft. of versatile meeting space. Transportation can be arranged to and from Welfare. Audio /Visual equipment and two stages are there for your use. Open space is available for team building activities. Food & beverage will be catered by Chef /Owner Gabriele McCormick who has lead the culinary team for the past 17 years.

“The food was fantastic and the ambiance better. The outdoor dining was romantic; in fact we are considering renting the barn behind the restaurant for our wedding.”

Kenneth Edwards

“I can't say enough good things about this special place. We love it for the amazing atmosphere, beautiful patio in a country setting with serene views and usually a breeze, and the food is first class. They usually have specials and tonight we had the hallibut (outstanding, so fresh, polenta, fresh snap peas so yummy), and I had the salmon rigatoni. It had fresh herbs and was so flavorful. For dessert, bread pudding. It is among the best I have ever had. If you are looking for a unique laid back experience with outstanding food, don't miss this place. ”


“The Welfare Cafe and Goat Barn hosted my wedding and reception on October 5, 2013, and did an amazing job! Gabby, owner/operator, went above and beyond to give my wedding the perfect twist of rustic elegance. The staff was timely and professional and the food was exquisite; their bread pudding is to die for!

Gabby made the entire event look like a walk in the park.

Thank you so much for an amazing evening!
