Description
We began our \"back-to-the-farm movement\" in 1981, when we acquired our Milam county farm, outside of Gause, which is located one and one-half hours northeast of Austin. At that time we were in other careers (real estate and art), so the farming was a week-end adventure. We were also raising our three children and none of them wanted to be seen with a hoe in their hands! By 1991, towards the end of the Texas \"depression,\" we decided we might as well follow our dream full-time. The children were just about grown, and besides, what did we have to lose? Art prices had bottomed out and the real estate bust had turned Larry into a house remodeler. Thus we began farming the Milam county farm, growing cool weather crops (carrots, lettuce, broccoli, etc.) and hot weather crops (tomatoes -- lots of tomatoes! -- squash, cucumbers, etc) which we sold at a small farm stand on a street corner near our home. The reception from passersby was exciting. Although we had to explain the word \"organic,\" all the customers understood \"fresh\"! Today we intensively cultivate the urban farm and also our country farm. At the Gause farm, we grow our Early Girl tomato crop, potatoes, onions, hard squash, summer squash, and other items we need in abundance. Specialty and salad crops, okra, heirloom and cherry tomatoes, plus flowers, are grown in Austin.
