This week -
Planting season is in full swing. So is the Texas legislative session. There are a few bills on the agenda that affect farmers. Check in with Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, link to the right, and get active. Cottage foods, animal ID, and raw milk are all on the agenda.
I have fruit trees for sale so let me know what you are looking for. We will start potting the bare rooted trees this week, so bare rooted will become "recently potted".
sustainable farm life
Our mission at the Laughing Frog Farm is to inspire people of all ages to come together to create a sustainable and equitable food system that is ecologically sound and that leads to food security and stable, respectable employment for those who choose to work in the food production business.
Produce, fruit trees & herbs grown by organic methods. Real food
We are a small permaculture farm in northern Waller County Texas near Hempstead. We started the farm to feed the two of us and do as little damage to the environment as possible. In 2009 we decided to start selling our fruits, vegetables and edible plants. We currently sell at the Urban Harvest Farmers Market on Eastside St. Saturdays from 8:00 to 12:00. We do not currently ship plants.
We grow everything following organic farming practices with no synthetic fertilizers, fungicides, pesticides, or herbicides. link Currently we have about 350 fruit trees and berry bushes in the ground and cultivate about half an acre of vegetables. We grow tilapia in a 3000 gallon recirculating tank in the greenhouse and use the water to irrigate our watercress. We raise layer hens and have horses that do some of the work around here.
We are one of the few sources of fruit trees, plant starts and herb plants that are grown by organic methods. Our plants are grown very different from the rest.
I put this site up during the 2010-11 winter and have very little time to work on it. Eventually I hope it will be an educational tool for all growers and eaters. We encourage you to visit our farm so you can see the way we grow and the love we put into the product.
