Review of Green Gate Farms by TexasRealFood

The Green Gate Farms was restored by Skip Connett and Erin Flynn. They left their corporate careers in public health and with little knowledge on community-supported agriculture. Despite this, they set out to restore the historic Green Gate Farms. Their mission/vision was to create “a community (food) resource for neighbors of all incomes” and to “cultivate an organic farm that feeds mind, body, and soul”.Today, the farm is a USDA certified organic farm with over 125 seasonal CSA members. In addition, they regularly provide educational classes and camp programs to community members. They also operate a farm stand three days a week selling organic vegetables, flowers, eggs, and meats. A Workshare Program allows community members to work in exchange for organic produce. It accepts SNAP and WIC food vouchers.The farm is a past winner of the Critics’ Choice Best of Austin award from The Austin Chronicle. “Excellent opportunity... for youth and adults to explore the world of farming. My kids did the farm camp and loved it!” – Facebook review
