Events

We will be teaching an aquaponics class on Sunday afternoon, September 17, 2017, starting at 1:00.  Class is limited to 10 participants and cost $45.  If you are interested please contact me through the contact link to reserve a space.  We will concentrate on building an IBC container system for urban aquaculturists, but the information will include a basic introduction that can be applicable for anyone interested in the concept. We are raising tilapia this winter, bluegill and goldfish.  We now have many different demonstration systems.

We are finished with open farm events until September. It is too hot in Texas in the summer. We can arrange morning tours during the week for your group. We plan to have open farms on the third Sunday of September, October, November and December.

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, and occasionally have a pig around.

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.
