Using Their Craft to Feed the Community

A Dickies Maker Story

Meet Carol Ann & Tracy, Urban Farmers

Traveling to Austin, TX for a visit to Boggy Creek Farm is completely worth the trip if you’re looking for fresh, organic produce and flowers. This mother/daughter team transformed the house and land into the first urban farm in Texas. After two decades of selling to places like Whole Foods, they realized there were no farmer’s markets in Austin, so they decided to open their own farm stand. Check out the video to learn more about the farm, what they grow, and advice for anyone trying to start their own farm.
