Johnson's Backyard Garden

Voted "Best Local Farm" by the Austin Chronicle!

We started our farm in East Austin in 2004 with a 30x50 foot "Backyard Garden." Since then, our small family-run CSA has grown to become the most popular community-supported, 100% certified organic farm in Texas! We offer home delivery as well as community pickup locations throughout central Texas. To start receiving our fresh organic vegetables, sign-up online:

JBG offers four Share sizes and allows customers to customize their shares weekly:

- Individual Share feeds 1-2 people for one week

- Small Share feeds 2-4 people for one week

- Medium Share feeds 3-5 people for one week

- Large Share feeds 4-7 people for one week

The produce included in the CSA box changes weekly is based on what is in season. Since our produce is picked fresh and does not have to be shipped long distances, we are able to grow flavorful heirloom varieties that are not found in grocery stores. We also offer members wonderful pastured eggs and organic fair-trade coffee.

CSA Shareholder Benefits include:

- Weekly recipes and storage tips for vegetables in your share

- Spring and Fall Potlucks/Hoedowns on the farm

- Special events like cooking and canning classes, U-Picks at the farm, and more

- Special discounts on bulk produce, citrus, and transplants

- Farm tours and seasonal camping at the farm

You can find our produce at most Farmers Markets in Austin, at top Austin restaurants, and at local organic grocers such as Whole Foods and Wheatsville Coop.

We've had a CSA subscription to Johnson's Backyard Garden for several months now and really could not be happier. We were thrilled to find a CSA in this area without a waiting list, and even more thrilled with the flexibility offered by Johnson's Backyard Garden (the four-box "try out" option, the option to pick up every other week instead of every week, the availability of eggs and fair-trade coffee)....

I started with Johnson's Backyard Garden almost a year ago and I love it. Their produce is fantastic quality.. oh the carrots, succulent tomatoes, the squash, the chard - I didn't know what chard was, but now I'm hooked! I am always pleased with the diversity, quantity, and quality of the produce each week.... [more]
