Acacia Farms Growing in Harmony with Nature

UPDATE: We now offer gluten/soy free breads and jams/jellies made with all organic ingredients. Citrus and grapefruit are available at this time. We are hoping for ripe tomatoes by Christmas.

We sell at the South Padre Island Market on Sundays from 11-1 (Oct-May)

The farm is open on Fridays from 3:00 to 6:00. (Oct - May)

Our gardening practices are based on many years of gardening experience. My family is Cherokee. I grew up on an organic farm and learned that if we take care of the soil, it will feed us. We practice natural, organic gardening and believe this makes healthier, stronger plants which aren't attacked by diseases and insects.

We do not use chemicals or synthetic fertilizers in the garden. Insects are controlled with beneficial predators, hand picking of insects and cultural practices which discourage insects. Our soil is amended with certified organic alfalfa meal, kelp meal, cottonseed meal, greensand and dry molasses. We use sea water (from the local Gulf of Mexico) to give our plants essential nutrients not available in commercial fertilizers. We prefer to grow open-pollinated, heirloom varieties of vegetables and do not grow GMO (genetically modified) seeds. We support small, family owned seed companies that have signed the Safe Seed Pledge. We do not use cottonseed trash from the local gins because of chemical contamination and GMO cotton. No animal products are used on our farm, we grow completely vegan.

We offer a large selection of vegetables for the discerning client all grown without chemicals or animal products. In 2012 we installed two large, custom built greenhouses in order to increase production and quality of tender vegetables. We now offer gluten, dairy and soy free breads along with jams and jellies made with no added pectin and using all organic ingredients. Please check our FB page for the weekly list of available vegetables.

It's another hot day in the lower Rio Grande Valley. It's got to be in the mid 90's. We've started another garden and planted the first of the new citrus trees. The newest garden is 105 x 40 and will be prepared the same as the other gardens, with raised beds and completely mulched.... [more]
