This week -

We have lots of freedom ranger chickens in the freezer and on ice. This week at the market I am offering a 10% discount on the purchase of two or more whole chickens. We are running out of freezer space.
We are going to have a winter CSA starting Nov. 30. Click on the button to the right for more info. The greens are starting to come in. We had the summer staples of okra and peppers along with the fall bok choi, rapini, mustards and baby greens. We will have lots of Freedom Ranger Chickens available for the rest of the year.

Sustainable Farm Life – permaculture farming, organic principles

CSA signup

We are a small permaculture farm in northern Waller County Texas near Hempstead.
In September we will start offering community supported agriculture (CSA) shares delivered to the Eastside Farmers Market on Saturdays.

We grow everything with no synthetic fertilizers, fungicides, pesticides, or herbicides.  We follow organic rules, using permaculture and biodynamic farming principles. We raise produce, fish (aquaponics), chickens for eggs, broiler chickens, Gulf Coast Native Sheep, fruit trees, and vegetable starts.
Our plants are grown very different from the rest. 
We currently sell at the Urban Harvest Farmers Market on Eastside St most Saturdays from 8:00 to 12:00.

Growing Blueberries in Texas

Chemical farming should be certified. Organic farming should be normal.

    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.

    I am highly interested in your backyard aquaponics workshop. When will you offer your next class?

      We are not set up for interns at this point. We do have public volunteer work days and you can come help and learn.

    Where is your farm located? I am very interested in visiting/purchasing.

    • May 5, 2016 10:57 am

      We are in Hempstead Texas. We are not open to the public at any regular times. We will have a open house in October. We sell out products at the Eastside Farmers Market in Houston, Tx.

    Will you have any young ewe’s and(or) a ram available for purchase this year? I am interested in starting my own flock!

    Thanks,
    Colby

    I see that you can’t do WWOOFing or internship opportunities, but do you know of anyone in the Houston area that does long-term options? Or even the Austin area?

    I am interested in WWOOFing (or even better interning) for a few months at least!
