B5 Farms is the continuation of family tradition of providing Central Texans with wholesome food. It began with the Boatman Dairy established by Q.C. Boatman (my great-grandfather) in Austin, Texas. He recognized the importance of working with nature and technology to provide the best quality and nutrition to his customers. He registered the B5 brand with Travis County in 1875, and began branding his cattle on the horn, to spare them discomfort and stress.
Today the B5 brand is a symbolic link to the past. It is our assertion that some of the old ways are best. Just try one of our many heirloom vegetables and compare them to conventionally produced, synthetically fertilized, pesticide drenched, and chemically ripened produce from your grocery store.

B5 is a small family farm dedicated to providing delicious, nutritious, synthetic-free food. Over the years of production we have tasted the difference and thus gravitated to growing heirloom varieties including tomatoes, squash, and eggplant. The quality of a perfectly ripened heirloom tomato is beyond compare and so, B5 is proud to offer 22 varieties in 2009.
In addition to vegetables, B5 grows plump blackberries, herbs, and peppers.
