Farm Stays
Go beyond the classroom
20 minutes from downtown Austin. Right next to the Colorado River


Our River Farm, located on the Colorado River, is the perfect place for a quick retreat. Though we are just a 20 minute drive to downtown Austin, being on the river makes it feel like you are a world away.  Be sure to explore our nearby friendly small towns – Bastrop, Elgin, and Smithville.

Our two spacious, private, primitive camping sites feature fire pits and picnic tables.

Fun Stuff

Rent our canoes and/or kayaks for fishing or exploring. Paddling around Willbarger Bend is a delightful three-hour adventure that ends at the Utley Bridge, just a half mile from our farm.

Farm Tour
We’re happy to arrange a farmer-led tour where you’ll learn about organic farming practices and our sustainable systems while gathering fresh produce for a farm-fresh meal.

Enjoy a Breakfast Basket
Fresh vegetables, pastured eggs and our very own breakfast sausage make for a delicious way to start the day.

Organic Flower Bouquet
Take home a fragrant arrangement to remember your trip by.

Farm Chores
Be a farmer for a few hours and lend a hand as we care for livestock and fields. All ages and abilities welcome!
