Green Gate Farms
We want to give a shout out to Green Gate Farms. They don’t just cultivate delicious foods, but they believe in involving the community in the process – something we really value. Skip Connett and Erin Flynn, who head Green Gate, provide farm tours, run the farm stand, host camps, and connect farmers with consumers through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). You can even reserve their farm for your own special events. They once held an amazing Mad Hatter Tea Party.
The best part? It’s close by. Green Gate Farms is located in Austin’s historic greenbelt, on the east side of town (8310 Canoga Avenue). Visiting the farm would be a great trip with the kids, and you’ll come home with fresh produce to cook for dinner!
