Celebrate five years of farming at our new farm and our New Farm Institute next Saturday at our First Annual Hootenanny. You’ll find good food and music, cool recreation, and a great cause.
Join us 20 miles east of Austin (just 15 minutes east of our in-town farm on Canoga Ave) for a community party to celebrate Green Gate Farms 5th anniversary, the farmers's birthdays, and the launch of our educational non-profit, New Farm Institute. The mission of New Farm Institute (NFI) is to educate, assist and inspire a new generation of sustainable farmers, with a focus on the urban fringe — an area defined as within 30 miles of medium to large cities.
Activities include swimming canoeing, fishing, straw bale building demo and hay rides. Please bring a shareable side for the potluck dinner.
Green Gate heritage meats prepared by El Locavore. Beer and wine will be available along with local artisenal vendors and a silent auction. Overnight campers are welcome but please reserve your spot.
We'll have farm activities such as hayrides, straw bale building demo, etc.
