REGENERATIVE FARMING

Rebellion starts with the soil.

We cultivate using holistic practices that nourish both people and the earth. Our diverse crops which include Daikon Radish, Armenian Yard Long Cucumber, Israeli Cantaloupe, Heirloom Tomatoes, Bush Scallop Squash, Chiogga Beet, Scarlet Nantes Carrot, Microgreens and more, are grown using no-till, cover cropping, crop rotation, and composting, in honor of mother earths natural processes. Health is wealth, so we grow food we want to eat.

We have high hopes for our 51 ace Hill Country homestead. Visit Dirt Candy Farm and shop the farm stand and mercantile, stay in our Airbnbs, and soon enjoy our lakeside spa.

At Dirt Candy Farm, we embody a spirit of defiance and purpose, echoing the rebellious spirit of Texas and the timeless wisdom of the land. Farming for us is not merely a vocation; it's a revolution—a stand against the long-standing destructive practices that have scarred our soil and society.

We draw strength from our ancestors, who honored the Earth as a living being deserving reverence, not exploitation. Through regenerative farming, we honor this ethos, recognizing that soil health is the bedrock of all life.

With our hands as tools and our hearts as compasses, we collaborate with nature, employing techniques that enrich the soil, conserve water, and foster biodiversity.

Our commitment is to leave the land better than we found it, a gift for future generations.

​Our rebellion extends beyond the soil to the very food on your plate.

Our intention is to create a food sovereign community here in Wimberley. While doing this we hope to train other passionate individuals to do the same in their own communities across the globe. Not only are food sovereign communities more resilient when times are tough, but they empower individuals and communities to regain control over our food systems. By growing our own food or supporting local farmers, people break free from the corporate stranglehold on their diets, asserting their right to determine what they eat and where it comes from.

We champion transparency, advocating for a connection between farmer and consumer. That's why we grow organiKally, without synthetic chemicals or GMOs, because we believe that healthy/nutritious food is a necessity. 

Join us in our defiance. Support local farmers. Embrace regenerative, organik* food. Together, we can sow the wild seeds of change, cultivating a better world, one harvest at a time.
