East Austin Farm Tour

Spend a Sunday touring the urban farms lining the edge of East Austin. Meet the farmers, learn what they grow and why they grow it, and meet their various chickens, ducks, goats, bunnies, and other farm animals along the way. Then spend some time at local restaurants whose chefs source from these very farms. There really is no better way to celebrate the very heart of local in Austin.

All proceeds from the event support the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, a national organization that supports independent family farmers and protects a healthy and productive food supply for American consumers.
