Medina is the undisputed apple capital of Texas, and the folks at Love Creek are the true pioneers of the Texas apple industry. Visit their downtown Medina tasting room and sample their fresh apple cider, apple pies, jams and jellies, sauces and butters, apple ice cream, and juicy fresh apples when they're in season. They also have apple trees and bigtooth maple trees for sale. It's possible to make arrangements for group tours with meals.
