San Antonio-area home connected to one of Texas' first organic olive farms is for sale

A year after the death of Texas olive-industry pioneer Saundra Winokur, the San Antonio native's massive ranch home has hit the market for $2.8 million.

Winoker founded Sandy Oaks, one of the state's first organic commercial olive growing operations and was revered in culinary circles for tending its trees with sustainability in mind, using only natural fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

Located in Elmendorf, about 30 minutes south the Alamo City, Winokur's former home sits on 10 acres, sharing land with a smaller residence, a retail building, a separate office, a maintenance garage and a banquet facility with a commercial kitchen. Other amenities include an in-ground pool, hacienda-style patio dining, fully equipped outdoor kitchen and three wells.

The 11,500-square-foot home's price tag doesn't include the 257 acres which housed  Sandy Oaks before its 2021 closure. However, that acreage is also available for purchase, according to the listing agent.

This home is listed by Sharon Zuscar Marek with Zuscar Realty LLC.
