Welcome to our farm,

We are a 5 acre sustainable urban farm. The property has served as a farm around 100 years. This iteration is a produce farm that grows hyper-seasonally - be it carrots, beets, cabbages, and greens during the cold season, or tomatoes, peppers and okra during the hot season - we grow what does best in our soil and our environment. 

We have several camping spots to choose from - whether you want to be in the trees in a quiet, dark space, or closer to the produce in a grassy area with the ability to watch the sun rise. We also have a spot that you can see how our soil is made. 

The property is a working farm, restaurant, and event space. The farmer and the chef live and work on the property and can help out as needed. Chickens and ducks live on the property as does a friendly farm dog & cat.

We offer 20% discounts (with coupon) to both of our restaurants to our

My family and I loved staying at the Eden East Farm. It truly is a haven tucked in the middle of Austin. I couldn’t believe that such a beautiful, peaceful place existed within 10 minutes of downtown. My children loved walking around the farm, examining the plants, petting the kitty and talking to the chickens and ducks!

If you’re lucky enough to be there on a Wednesday or Saturday morning then you must go to brunch at their on-site farm to table restaurant. We had egg bowls and pear buttermilk pancakes. So Delicious!

Sonya and Dave made us feel incredibly welcomed. We were able to meet some of the chefs and volunteers who took the time to give us samples, suggest ideas for places to visit, help us pick out veggies from their Wednesday morning market, and gave me ideas on how to cook the veggies on the single burner kitchen in our camper.

We definitely plan on going back to Eden East Farm. It was the highlight of our 4 days in Austin. Side note, if you get the chance you must visit their Hillside Farmacy restaurant. It is located in an old pharmacy and has a ton of vintage bottles and décor. It was so funky!

Here's what my 8-year-old had to say about it:

Hi I am Leila, what I liked about the farm was playing with the kitten.i liked playing with the animals.i liked walking in the vegetable garden. and feeding the ducks and the chickens.

And here's what my 5-year-old thought about it:

I like seeing the flowers. i like doing the maze. i liked Hillside Farmacy, and playing with the people.

Here's what my 2-year-old had to say:

I loved playing with the animals, and I loved the garden.

We had such a great time! Thank you Sonya and Dave!

Do you like waking up to the sound of a rooster in the middle of the city? If "yes," Eden East is the perfect place for you.

While the campsite is in the middle of the city and not as private as a campsite in the backcountry (we were there in winter, so the bushes weren't as full as they would be in the summer), we never felt unsafe or discontent. A few blocks away is the Austin Bouldering Project, and adjacent to that is an awesome local brewery. I highly recommend checking both places out.

The farm itself is beyond amazing and way bigger than I imagined. I can't believe I had never heard of it before, despite coming to Austin many times previously! If you are there on a Wednesday or Saturday, be sure to pop in to the on-site farmer's market and pick up some veggies or even get homemade, farm-fresh breakfast. I would recommend the make-your-own bowl!

Sonya was so kind and took time to show us around the property, telling us about various aspects of farm life and giving us info about local to-dos. The culture and community she has built at Eden East is really special to be around.

Support local bees! Pop-in to the onsite store and snag some local honey.The entrance to the farm. This is opposite of where the parking lot for regular customers is located. The driveway crosses a small drainage and your parking is on the right.The campsite is tucked by the fence next to the farmhouse. There's enough space for one large tent or two small tents.food farm veggies

Loved camping in East of Eden. Sonya greeted us and provided several options of which we picked our favorite. Waking up in the garden in the middle of Austin is a remarkable experience. Breakfast from the onsite food truck restaurant is a must (coffee cake) and the brewery nearby is just a short walk. We will be back.

This farm was so cute and peaceful! We played with the chickens in the morning and were served coffee on Sonya's porch. David was super sweet and welcoming when we first arrived. Would definitely stay here again :-)

My stay at Eden East was great. It was my first experience on Hipcamp and it exceeded my expectations! The property is beautiful! The location was perfect. It was very close to everything. We walked to get coffee and breakfast in the morning. And it’s only a short drive downtown. We felt safe and secluded at our site. Sonya and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. We only wished we had stayed later so we could have had brunch at the restaurant on the property. 10/10 would stay again!

Eden East Farm is truly a slice of paradise in an urban environment. You drive through Austin, thinking "There's no way there's a farm in here". Then, sure enough, 5 acres of meticulously managed lush vegetation.

Coming from a camping background, I have to say it is truly an uncommon blessing to be able to camp "in" town rather than on the outskirts. Coming also from an agricultural background, I must say that David and the crew there certainly know how to manage a farm as can be seen in the diverse and thriving crops all around.

Sonya and David were kind enough to accommodate my Roof Top Tent. I was a little concerned about the bustling city noise when I arrived, but right around 8 pm it really died down to make for a peaceful night's rest. There is a bathroom with a real sink and flush toilet as well as a light! Within a 5-minute walk, there is a really nice brewery and you're honestly a 5-minute drive to anything you would need.

If you are in Austin, looking for a unique and affordable alternative to lodging, Eden East Farm is definitely worth checking out! If I'm ever in Austin again, I'll definitely be staying here!
