This week -

The work schedule has been hectic, but it just got a lot more so. A huge tree fell on to our garden and greenhouse. It did not do much damage but has to be carefully removed to preserve the structure, save the asparagus and garlic and keep all my limbs intact. In the mean time we are going to only go to the market occasionally this summer. The good news is that if it had fallen the exact opposite direction it would have fallen on the house. We will also have plenty of logs to grow shitake mushrooms on this year.
We will begin to wean the lambs soon and have them for sale. We have ram lambs that are prime for use as a Gulf Coast Native breeding ram.

IMG_2025At the Laughing Frog Farm we work towards a sustainable and equitable food system that is humane, ecologically sound and that leads to food security and stable, respectable employment for those who choose to work in the food production business.

Organic should be normal–the others should be certified

We are a small permaculture farm in northern Waller County Texas near Hempstead. We currently sell at the Urban Harvest Farmers Market on Eastside St Saturdays from 8:00 to 12:00.  IMG_1200

We grow everything with no synthetic fertilizers, fungicides, pesticides, or herbicides. link  We raise produce, fish (aquaponics), chickens for eggs, Gulf Coast Native sheep, fruit trees, vegetable starts, and teach classes on sustainability and qi gong.
Our plants are grown very different from the rest.

    Glen, your This Week statement (3/10) is one of the most articulate and persuasive I have seen on the subject of sustainable agriculture, earth stewardship and the nature of our food supply. I really respect what you do and how you do it. Thanks.
