This place is amazing. I had an outdoor wedding, the perfect place to host a party for several hundred people in style! The best part of utilizing the Hofmann Ranch is the natural beuty of the venue and the caterer that provides services for the venue. Gary Carter (owner of Castroville Cafe and caterer) and his services are worth every penny, he takes care of everything and everyone. Charolette and Hans Hofmann are professional and considerate business owners. They make sure things run smoothly and elegantly.

I recently had my wedding at the Grande Hall and it turned out to be everything I could have dreamed of. I knew I wanted a hill country wedding and the Grande Hall stuck out to me because there are so many different areas of use. When comparing prices of different site this venue gave a lot for the price. I used Gary for the catering from Castroville Cafe and he was absolutely amazing and reasonably priced! He took care of everything from food to running the day to the flower arrangement and table arrangements. My day was so care free and I would just enjoy my wedding day without having to stress. I would absolutely recommended them to anyone.
I had approximately 140 people. We had the ceremony under the pavilion, dinner in the hall (downstairs) and reception outside under the pavilion. Gary did the switch flawlessly and it was perfect! I got so many compliments from friends and family on how beautiful everything was.
Again this is an absolutely gorgeous venue for a great price. If you do choose this venue I highly recommend using Gary because he really knows how to make the place perfect!!

I had my wedding at the Hofmann Ranch January 7, 2012 and I am SO glad that I did. The wedding was gorgeous, the scenery was lovely, the hall was spectacular. It was so cozy and intimate. Charlotte and Hans are just as sweet as they can be and accommodating. The caterer Gary from Castroville Cafe is AMAZING. He made the wedding go smoothly and off without a hitch. I can not say enough great things about him and his work. You can definitely relax and trust that everything will be flawless and run smoothly with Gary in charge. You will definitely not regret having your big day at the Hofmann Ranch!

I chose this place because I wanted to have a beautiful outdoor wedding and in case it rained the pravilion right next to it would be a great option. I feel in love with it the moment I saw it!
Our wedding day was perfect on November 22, 2011 from the weather, ceremony, food and music. Gary Carter, who is the caterer is great to work with and he helped me with arranging all the decorations inside and outside that I needed. His food is just awesome and I love the family style option much better than the buffet style in serving the food. I also opted not to have a wedding coordinator but Gary is so organized that I didn't need one. He helped set up a timeline of events and will keep you on schedule from start of dinner to cake cutting and toast. Our DJ, Brandon from Platinum DJ was also good with keeping a schedule so we had double the help! Loved the hen house where we got dressed. It is so wonderfully furnished and decorated so it was great when they took photos of my dress and the bridal party getting ready. Yes, there is a time limit to get everything out of the hen house after the ceremony but we had no problems at all.
Charolette was a joy and easy to work with. Charolette and Hans Hofmann really have a great place to host weddings and other events. I had so many compliments from family and friends. They also had a tv screen that we were able to have a slideshow play during the reception. Also you have to provide your own alcohol so we saved $$ going to H.E.B. I highly recommend this place to anyone. In fact I have cousin who may also be having there wedding there next year! We were truly blessed to find such a beautiful place to have our wedding that we will cherish forever!
