Blue Heron Farm
Blue Heron Farm was established by Christian and Lisa Seger as they wanted to show that it was possible to run a profitable farm while treating the land and animals with respect. They manage the property using sustainable agriculture practices, and their Nubian goats are pasteurized. Products include an array of cheeses such as feta, spicy Mediterranean, and Green Goddess.
Finca Tres Robles
Finca Tres Robles is the only private farm located in Houston's 610 loop. It is situated on what was once a vacant lot, and the healthy, fertile soil was built slowly using green waste such as vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, and woodchips from several tree trimming companies. Depending on the season, the selection may include collard greens, lemon greens, heirloom tomatoes, and so much more.
Katerra Exotics produces pasture-raised bison and other grass-fed meats. It's owned and operated by the Bierschwale family, and they have been active in the industry since 1980. The pastures are never treated with fertilizers or pesticides, and the herd grazes freely on the land. Products include bison bacon, bison jerky, and short ribs.
Garden Dreams Texas
At Gardes Dreams Texas, the motto is "When Life Gives You Lemonade, Make Marmalade." It's owned by Kirk O'Neil and Elaine Lupovitch and was born from a garage full of Meyer lemons harvested from a friend's orchard. In addition to the marmalade, the couple also makes jams, jellies, and salsas from fresh ingredients.
