Who needs a breather?
Thanks to Addie Broyles, whose coverage in her Austin-American Statesman food blog, Relish Austin, gave us a nod for 25 years as one of Austin’s pioneers, and of our hiatus from the CSA this year. Food bloggers may cover restaurant openings and closings left and right, but Addie has been attuned to the source of food as well: FARMERS! Her blog is in tune with not just ours, but most area farms’ trials and tribulations, and takes the time to educate her readership on agriculture in the area. Broyles covered Tecolote’s longevity, including our recovery from our well water loss via new land and groundwater sources in Bastrop County, and also did an investigative piece on local-washing! Between well water battles, local-washing, and heinous tornado damage in 2017, some would wonder why anyone farms at all. However, we can’t think of a better life, and are thrilled to be celebrating 25 years of successful farming in Central Texas this year!
