Open Farm May 21, 2017 Noon-4:00

May 1, 2017

Our next open farm event is scheduled for Sunday Sept. 16. We will not do these Sunday afternoon tours in the heat of the summer, but can arrange morning tours during the week for your group.
Noon until 4:00

Laughing Frog Farm is a small, diversified, family farm that raises fruits and vegetables, Gulf Coast Native Sheep, Freedom Ranger meat chickens, and heritage laying hens, using permaculture methods and organic principles.

We use the animals to prepare and fertilize the soil and, without tilling, we can preserve the microbiological integrity of the soil. Each growing season (and we have at least two annually in Texas), we dedicate one garden to raising livestock, fertilizing the soil and clearing the weeds. We have a small aquaponics system, a few geese, and occasionally have a pig around.

We use permaculture methods to move the water and huglekulture mounds to rise above the floods, while holding water in their soil.

You are welcome to bring a lunch and drinks and dine on Chandler’s chainsaw art dining tables, with the opportunity to purchase one and take it home. They are made from farm fresh wood.

We will have a few fruit trees for sale.

Owari satsuma
Brown select satsuma
Republic of Texas orange
Minneola tangola
Rio red grapefruit
Page mandarin
Taracco blood orange
Meiwa kumquat
Lakeland limequat
Iranian lemon

Muscadine grapes, figs, blueberries and blackberries

We ask that you not bring pets and wear closed toed shoes. Hats are great, and remember that mosquitoes, snakes, spiders, etc are all part of the farm.

We request a small donation to the farm to cover the time and effort we put into this tour, but we will not charge an admission fee so everyone, regardless of their financial situation, can attend.

This event will be canceled if it rains so much we cannot park cars in a pasture.

Please see our link under events for any possible updates.

There is a good map on the contacts page of this website.

We are located in northern Waller County, Tx., 60 miles from Houston, 40 miles from Bryan, and 100 miles from Austin.
