Events

Volunteers week. On Sept 10, 2018 I will pickup our certified organic seedlings and we will begin to plant them in our gardens from Sept. 12 through Sept 19. Anyone who can help is welcome to volunteer. In return you will be able to take home some plants for your own garden. If you plan to volunteer and learn how we do things please let me know at least two days in advance.

The next open farm event is September 15.  On that date we welcome you from noon until 4:00.
We will have a farm dinner on November 11, 2018 for Slow Foods Houston.  We will feature the three sisters planting method with corn, beans and squash.  More information to come.

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.

During open farm days 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 keep strange dogs off the property, 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.
