We’re building the biggest permaculture farm in Texas

Permaculture is a methodology to design ecosystems that closely mimic nature. We follow those methods to create a sustainable farm that grows vegetables, greens, herbs and fruits located an hour northeast of Austin. With 150 acres, we plan to be the biggest permaculture farm in Texas.

Sustainable farms grow the best possible produce and design their farms to protect the health and well-being of the surrounding area. This means developing and fostering a rich ecosystem of plants, trees and animals that work in harmony with one another. A healthy ecosystem makes everything grow and taste better. As a food forest, trees will govern the land. Trees are amazing living beings: They capture and store harmful pollutants that contribute to global warming, produce their own mulch and compost, reduce the impact of high winds, prevent erosion of valuable topsoil, communicate with other trees via their roots and share resources when other trees are under stress or being attacked, and in a forest, they release a chemical that has been shown to improve the immune systems of humans. That’s why we will plant hundreds, if not several thousand trees over the coming years. That means hundreds of fruit trees growing cherries, figs, peaches, limes, oranges, pomegranates, apples and a variety of nuts.

How to buy from us

Subscribe to our weekly CSA — community supported agriculture — to receive a box of organically grown vegetables, herbs, fruits and greens. Unlike what you may find in your local supermarket, where most produce is grown in Mexico, locally grown means it’s fresh and nutritious. We currently have two locations where you can pick up a BFF box:

If you’re in central Texas and interested in having a CSA drop-off location in your neighborhood, let us know here. Let us know, too, you’re a business and interested in partnering with us for our CSA program.

Or, visit us at the Lakeline Farmers Market in Cedar Park, Texas, on Saturday mornings, from 9 am until 1 pm.
