Local Farms

Posted by youngsierrans on September 12, 2007

I’ve been made aware of two local farms that offer gleaning service activities and periodic e-newsletters. I’m in the process of organizing a YS gleaning event for sometime this fall. Feel free to contact these folks directly to be added to their distribution list.

  • Wendy Akin – – Akin Farm in Terrell, TX
  • Laurie Bostic – – Barking Cat Farm in Rockwall County, TX –

If you’re aware of additional organic or gleaning farms in the area, let me know and I’ll add them to this post.
