Eating Healthy is Now Easier~Johnson’s Backyard Garden in East Austin

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.346.1799

I was thrilled to receive a share from Johnson’s Backyard Garden at a closing from some special clients recently. I thought I had a handle on most things in Austin but I’m continuing to learn there is a constant flow of discoveries to be made in Austin…’s an ongoing education!

If you like locally grown, organic produce delivered to your door then you need to check out this family-run, community supported farm located on the Colorado River just fifteen miles east of downtown Austin.

It’s amazing how so many families all over town are enjoying their homegrown, organic vegetables through their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, area farmers markets and their relationships with top restaurants and local grocers.

Their fields and gardens are quickly ripening and their preparation of the crops is a full time job! The cost of your CSA share depends on the box size you order. This program is a direct partnership between Johnson’s Backyard Garden and the consumer. CSA members pay in advance for a share of the upcoming harvest and ensure high-quality produce. If you want locally grown organic vegetables I’ll bet you’ll love the easy experience of home delivery or community pick up sites. Options to add on are organic pasture raised eggs and organic fair-trade locally roasted coffee.

Eating healthy just got easier with Johnson’s Backyard Organic Garden!

We have seen this type of service both in Napa and here.  It is great for those who unlike us don't have time or desire to go to the Farmers Market themselves.  Both here and in Napa, they include recipes for the selected seasonal ingredients.  A

Good Morning Dorie - I have heard of these in other places.  I think we have one of these in the northern part of our county.

What a great share; organics and local farmers are a big deal here in San Diego. Lot's of farm to table and farmer's markets to support local growers!

Good morning Dorie.  Eating healthy for me is having just two fries with that burger...

Well, how cool is that, Dorie!  Like you, I've been in Charlotte for nearly 4 decades so, new discoveries are always exciting!  I love that they are a local farmer and deliver right to your door - definitely something I would enjoy - AND you own a share of stock in it!  ;-)

Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day, Dorie.
