Events

We rent the farm for weddings, dinners and other events. Contact me through the contact link above for prices and arrangements. You can simply rent the space or we can help with the logistics, cooking, dishes, cleanup etc.

• April 5 – Raise your voice in Hempstead about small scale agriculture

• April 22 – On Earth Day and Kenan’s birthday, April 22, we are going to have a volunteer planting day. This is your chance to get down on you knees and get dirty. You will get a farm tour and a plant or two to take home. We will start early and work until about 2:00 pm. So come any time after the sun comes up and work as much as you feel comfortable doing. Bring a lunch, a hat, closed toed shoes. You might also want gloves, insect repellant, sunscreen. We will provide great well water. Around noon we will cut a birthday cake for my wife.

No pets!
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.

We use permaculture methods to move the water and huglekulture mounds to rise above the floods.

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 ask that you not bring pets. We are training our dogs to attack strange dogs, and guest dogs greatly complicate that job. 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 check back 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.
