This week -

Fall weather is here. It is only going to be 88˚ today. We are going to start transplanting fall brassicas in the garden. We have decided to sell our ram to improve the genetic diversity. If interested check out the livestock page. We also have a few ewes we are selling for that same reason. With the rain and the cooler temperatures we will begin to plant fruit trees again. Now is a great time to graft trees so I will get busy on that as well.

sustainable farm life

At 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 every second and fourth Saturdays from 8:00 to 12:00.  You can also find us in Brenham on the First Sunday at the Home Sweet Farm Market.

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.

    Part of a growing movement, commendable. In Europe I see more and more sustainable farmers struggling because regulations allow GMO planting close to e.g. organic-certified farms which then get cross-pollinated and eventually lose their license or have to curtail their operations to put more free space between their core fields and the GMO pollinators. I understand the US has a bit more space than the EU farms as a rule but on the other hand I understand your GMO lobbyists to be far more aggressive. Have you gotten any problems yet?

      We are luckily surrounded by non-farming land holders. This is a big problem in much of the farming community. It is about one mile from our farm to the nearest GMO field and that is usually corn.
