Texas Bucket List is back at it again in East Texas. They go around the entire state of Texas to find all kinds of interesting places. Telling the stories of out of the way places in the Lone Star State is what they are all about.

Locally we can see the show on Cable KYTX CBS shows it Sundays at 6:30am so set your DVR. Even though some places featured in Texas are further away from us than other states, they sometimes hit a home run. This would make a great weekend trip for anyone in the Lufkin Nacogdoches area of East Texas.

Award winning TV series, The Texas Bucket List, finds a family’s farm to table restaurant focused on food, fellowship, and faith.

Texas Bucket List

KENNARD, TX— Hidden within the woods of the Davy Crockett National Forest, down a long backroad, there lies a clearing with a curious garden run by Larry Bruce. This peculiar piece of land has belonged to his family since 1866, and together with his wife, Sarah, they run Larry Bruce Gardens. Not only does it hold the title of being a garden, but also a farm-to-table restaurant, church, canning facility, and bed and breakfast! Tune in the weekend of August 31-September 1, 2019 as host, Shane McAuliffe, uncovers the food, faith, and fellowship found on this family farm in the forest.

Although their location is far from most folks, that does not stop the crowds from rolling in. Since 1992, this former landscaper and former interior decorator duo have been creating their unique restaurant that is known to leave people with full stomachs and happy hearts.

Larry Bruce Gardens is featured alongside two other stops—Henderson & Kane General Store in Houston, TX and Julio’s Seasoning and Tortilla Chips in Del Rio, TX.

Mom's Diner in Lufkin was once featured on The Texas Bucket List. CLICK HERE to see the story.
