Grohmann Farms is located in Weimar, Texas in the Gulf Coast grape growing region. Weimar can be found on Interstate 10 between Houston and San Antonio. It's 86 miles southeast of Austin and 60 miles west of Katy.
Weimar was founded in 1873 along the Galveston, Harrisburg, and San Antonio railway and was originally named Jackson, but was subsequently called Weimar in tribute to the German city of Weimar. The Post Office was established in 1873 and the town was incorporated in 1875.
Weimar is a small community of predominately Czech and German descendants. The 2000 census lists its population as 1,981. In its early years, it was a trade center for pecans, poultry, and dairy products. Today local industries include meat processing, tooling and sheet metal works, and gasket manufacturing. Agriculture continues to be a part of the Weimar economy with feed grain and beef production.
Weimar boasts of its own Heritage Museum (where you will learn that Weimar has a long history with the sport of baseball) and a newspaper, the Weimar Mercury that continues publication since its origin in 1888.
