Slow Food Happy Hour at Boggy Creek Farm June 19, 2010

Thursday was the monthly Slow Food Austin Happy Hour, this month at Boggy Creek Farm.  The food was provided by Ecstatic Cuisine, Drinks by the Tipsy Texans and Bill Norris of Fino.  As I mentioned earlier, the farm was in glorious form.  Head on out to the Saturday Farmstand and see it for yourself.  You’ll be happy you did.  It is such a charming setting for an amazing working farm just off East 7th Street.

Aside from the farmstand vegetables available for sale on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9-1:00, there are eggs, Miles of Chocolate, goat milk, cheeses, Thunderheart Bison, this local Sauerkraut, and usually locally made bread and pastries.  It is a fabulous place to get amazing organic food, in a glorious setting.  Then you can visit Springdale Farm around the corner and load up on even more!  There are 4 great farms, in a two block area just East of Downtown.  We are so lucky.

    Hi, I am a student at LASA High School in Austin, Texas. I am designing a magazine for a class, and was wondering if you would let me use some of the photos in your post for an article I’m writing on Boggy Creek Farm. It is not for profit, and I will be sure to credit you with the photograph should you give me permission. If you are okay with this, could you email me at quirkteam@gmail.com?
