About Certified Organic River Farm
Our River Farm is a working certified organic vegetable and flower farm that has three distinct terraces.
At the top terrace is a wooded hillside of Texas Persimmon trees bordered by a newly installed food forest. It affords a beautiful overlook of the farm. Down the hill --on the middle terrace -- is where we live and grow about 4 acres of vegetables That is also where our rustic shower/bathroom is located.
The bottom terrace features a thick woods along the Colorado River -- and a treehouse that overlooks the river (a gift from my husband for my birthday -- you are welcome to sleep up there). Primitive campers are welcome on the top or bottom terraces; there is plenty of privacy. We live in a cottage on the property so there is always someone there in case of illness or emergency.
Though we are just a 20 minute drive to downtown Austin, being on the river makes it feel like we are a world away. Bastrop and Elgin are nearby friendly small towns that are worth exploring for antiques and good food.
Our farm is known for its farm-based education programs so volunteers are always welcome!
