Quebe Farm in Brenham, Texas
Quebe Farm in Brenham, Texas is one of my favorite properties to visit. It is Texas natural beauty at its finest, and the owner Charlotte von Rosenberg has made a true commitment to the land. She is a celebrated and award-winning (Land Steward of the Year) naturalist and conservationist. Natural Texas and Quebe Farm have worked together over the past 13 years to return the land to its most natural state, encouraging the restoration of wildlife habitats and native plant species. I really feel proud to have had the privilege to be a part of this project.
Together, Natural Texas and Quebe Farm took the over grassed pasture and overgrown woodland and riparian areas, and encouraged the native plants and trees to thrive. And thrive it has done! The land has become an ecological jewel in the heart of the Texas Pineywoods. Throughout the years, Natural Texas has handled the heavy lifting such as forestry mowing, while Charlotte has worked to encourage the native plants to populate the land. I do not pretend to be a botanist, that’s all Charlotte!
The Quebe Farm project has been a true team effort. Charlotte understands completely what it takes to manage land in the most natural and responsible way possible. I always enjoy visiting Quebe Farm, and I can’t wait until my next trip back. It’s a place to be one with nature and enjoy a slice of land that God has blessed us with.
The land is for all to enjoy. We must respect it and manage it sustainably.
Forest and Land Management
You and your crew did a wonderful job clearing and mulching at my place near McDade last winter. The woods were very overgrown after decades of neglect. In three days work, you and your crew removed a huge amount of brush and ‘fire ladders’, making a vast improvement for wildlife and fire safety. You listened to my requests but made numerous suggestions how to improve the plans that I had made, with the result of more benefits for wildlife and more beauty to appreciate. I was astonished how you guys could work fast and accomplish a lot with the big forestry mower, yet leave unscathed even small bushes we wanted to save. You taught me a lot about taking care of the place and the new pathways and pocket meadows have been a joy for me and my family. I’m looking forward to having you do more this year. Let me mention that all our interactions were very professional, your team came when you said they would, and I can’t think of anything to complain about. I recommended you to my neighbors and I’m happy to answer any questions about your work. Best regards, Dave Naumann Mc Dade, TX and Hoboken, NJDave NaumannLand Steward
