Green Gate Farms

Our certified organic family farm uses sustainable growing methods to raise the tastiest vegetables, herbs, flowers and meat possible. Our food is all local, all the time! No synthetic pesticides/fertilizers ever.

We are one of the few certified organic farms in the area that provides weekly (or biweekly) vegetable shares sized for families and individuals as well as options for meat, eggs and flowers. A one-stop-shop for the highest-quality food in Central Texas.

Don't wait to reserve your share of the harvest. Our new online ordering system makes Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) membership extremely easy. You can manage when and where you pick up your food each week. Go to to sign up for weekly (or biweekly) shares.

Rewards of membership include: discounts on all farm events -- posted at, the education arm of the farm -- and access to both farm locations for camping, canoeing and relaxing.

Our farm stand - located at our in town farm, 8 miles east of downtown Austin - is open to people of all incomes (WIC/SNAP accepted) on Tuesdays 3-6, and Fridays and Saturdays 10-2.

Farmer-led tours are given every Saturday at noon for @ 45 minutes and highlight both animal and vegetable aspects of our farm. Come meet our endangered and heritage breed animals. ($10 per person ages 10 and older, free for CSA members)

Volunteers welcome at our intown and Bastrop farm locations!


Thanks for supporting certified organic, local farms.
