Located an hour northeast of Austin off State Hwy. 21, Edendell Farms specializes in both seasonal and off-season produce sold to individual customers in the Austin and Bryan-College Station areas. Known for its winter greenhouse crop of tomatoes, sweet red peppers and mild chiles, Edendell is expanding its field and greenhouse planting for 2011 and is currently accepting additional HarvestSHARE (CSA) subscriptions. Customers can expect more tomatoes and peppers varieties along with cucumbers, assorted squashes, onions, salad greens, carrots, and a variety of other traditional seasonal crops.
Three levels of HarvestSHARE are available: farmer's bag ($9/wk for 3-4 items), double bagger ($18/wk for 5-7 items), or full SHARE ($35/wk for 7-10 items). Subscriptions are prepaid for 12 weeks subscriptions. Edendell Farms will customize HarvestSHARE deliveries to meet dietary restrictions due to medical needs.
We are dedicated to promoting healthy eating habits and expanding food production in both rural and urban areas. We offer monthly cooking and gardening classes through the My Neighborhood Garden program ( featured on Facebook). We welcome visitors to tour our demonstration garden designed to be adaptable to urban settings. For those who wish to pursue urban agriculture, we are developing a model gardener program.
We offer a two-year Farmshare program designed to train and support new farmers on both the art of growing and the business of farming. The program is designed to not only train but also help our graduates start their own farms. We also accept interns through the WWOOF program and from among our HarvestSHARE members.

Edendell Farms is 134 acre 5th generation family farm in Dime Box, TX. We grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs sustainably and believe food should be free of harmful chemicals. On our farm, you'll see the tried and true techniques of our great grandparents along with the modern technology of hydroponics, which uses 1/5th the water of traditional growing without harmful chemicals. We welcome visitors to tour our urban ag garden, fields, and greenhouse and then picnic in our oak grove by the pond.

Their vegetables are riched with flavor, that it's hard to decide to eat them raw or cook. Not to forget mentioning the taste of freshness. I have enjoyed ever product from their garden and would highly recommend them to my family and friends.
