Eden Creek Farm opened in 2007 and has since been serving the Dallas/Fort Worth/Central Texas region with a clean, fresh, and organic option. Our produce and pork can be found at numerous farmer's markets, online stores, and restaurants open to the general public.

  We also offer a variety of seasonal classes which serve to educate our community on living in harmony with our surroundings, homesteading, and foraging. For sign ups and a calendar of events please view our "Upcoming Events" listed under tabs. Space is limited

  Everything on Eden Creek Farm is grown in the same way our ancestors have been practicing for generations. It is called sustainable agriculture.

definition: Sustainable agriculture is the act of farming using principles of ecology, the study of relationships between organisms and their environment.

Our methods include using:
  • composted livestock manures
  • crop rotation
  • cover crops to improve the land.

  The earth is alive with earth worms, beneficial fungi, and billions of other microbes that complete the cycle . The living earth supplies the plants with nutrition they need. Eden Creek Farm naturally feeds the soil that feeds the plants rather than fertilizing the plant directly with synthetic chemicals.

  Eden Creek Farm is also home to a breeding program to preserve and propagate the critically endangered Red Wattle Hog. For more information on our meat sales and humane practices please view our "Online Store."

“Organic is something we can all partake of and benefit from. When we demand organic, we are demanding poison-free food. We are demanding clean air. We are demanding pure, fresh water. We are demanding soil that is free to do its job and seeds that are free of toxins. We are demanding that our children be protected from harm. We all need to bite the bullet and do what needs to be done—buy organic whenever we can, insist on organic, fight for organic and work to make it the norm. We must make organic the conventional choice and not the exception available only to the rich and educated.”

Welcome to Eden Creek Farm











The purpose of Eden Creek Farm's Nonprofit 501(c)(3) is to provide online and onsite scientific and educational material and support to the community and general public,relating to agriculture, animal husbandry and renewable energy.







  America's farms and ranches provide an unparalleled abundance of fresh, healthy and local food, but they are rapidly disappearing.

  Ninety-one percent of America’s fruit and seventy-eight percent of our vegetables are grown near metro regions, where they are in the path of development. And America has been losing more than an acre of farmland every minute. With fewer than 1 million Americans now claiming farming as their primary occupation, farmers are a vanishing breed. Local farmers who sell direct to consumers cut out the middleman and get full retail price for their food - which means farm families can afford to stay on the farm, doing the work they love.

  When you buy direct from the farmer, you are re-establishing a time-honored connection between the eater and the grower. Knowing the farmers gives you insight into the seasons, the weather, and the miracle of raising food.
