2011 CSA - Now accepting new members

Although we are Houston's first and largest Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm, we are NOT into being BIG.  In fact, we are currently downsizing, focusing on our committed member base by serving them the highest quality 100% local food available.  We are NOT here to feed ALL of Houston...  We are here to feed a small community who is committed with us in restoring our local food system, for the health of all involved.

Space is limited and many dropsites will fill-up quickly this season!  More info is available here...
