We are a small family farm specializing in high-quality, organically grown produce. In addition to growing for some of the best restaurants in Dallas, we sell our food to the public through our Farm Box program. We grow for you!
Comeback Creek Farm was started by John Kilburn in 2005 in Pittsburg, Texas, about two hours east of Dallas. We still plant every seed, pick every weed, and tend to every plant with our own hands. Our land comprises twenty-five acres, around ten of which we commit to farming. The remaining land is covered by stands of native timber and a creek that gave us inspiration for the name of our farm, Comeback Creek. We began selling our produce in 2005 at a single table at the Dallas Farmers Market, and in 2009 - encouraged by the support and interest from many of our customers - we started our CSA.
We steward the land with care and believe in treading lightly. We farm using only low impact, sustainable methods: no synthetic pesticides or herbicides and no harmful chemical fertilizers. Additionally, we do not use genetically modified seed. These ecologically sound practices are safe for us as growers, for you as consumers, and for the land around us.
Community support and a growing interest in the benefits of eating fresh, locally grown foods have given us the opportunity to slowly expand the volume and variety of what we grow. We frequently experiment with different, often heirloom, varieties of our established crops to determine what will thrive in our soil and withstand the finicky east Texas weather, while expanding the variety of what we plant each season.
We are always a work in progress, and thanks to the support of our members we are able to continue investing in the work we love to do: organically and sustainably growing delicious, healthy, seasonal produce that we can share with you!
