EIEIO's Organic Farm is a Family-Run Farm in Wimberley, Texas Since 2007. What started as a crazy inspiration has become an incredible journey!
It all started in Austin, 2007. 4 yr old Max & Kathleen were watching “Charlotte’s Web” for like the 30th time when he turned to her and said, “Mom..why don’t we move out into the country, start a farm, call it EIEIO’S and get a pig named Wilbur”!! Laughing and crying they jumped into action and within a few months had found their land in Wimberley.
The farm sits on 12 acres just 2 minutes from Wimberley Square! It is surrounded by beautiful Oak and Pecan trees right on the creek. They also make homemade organic condiments, which you can purchase at the Farmer's Markets or on their website.
They also have two darling cabins where you can stay for a truly authentic farm stay experience!
Pursuing an organic certification can be time consuming, expensive, and filled with paperwork. Many farms are transitioning to utilizing organic agricultural practices, but may not be ‘Certified Transitional’ or ultimately pursue an Organic certification. Farms marked with Transitional will still be working towards minimizing, and eventually eradicating, their use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and other mechanical interventions that don’t meet with organic practices.
