Brazos Locavores - October Field Trip Announcement

For fourteen years, the Osth Family has worked the land to provide naturally-grown food to their family and the local community. In addition to their membership in the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market, the Osths offer a weekly newsletter detailing the farm products for sale, then provide weekly delivery in College Station.

Situated forty minutes east of College Station, the Osth Family has generously invited us to visit for a their 88 acre farm. Included in the farm tour will be a demonstration of how they've trained draft horses to work the land, a visit to the developing orchard with bee hives, introductions to the many farm animals that make Osth Family Farm their home (goats, pigs, chickens, cows, dogs, and horses), games for the kids, and refreshments for all.

Osth Family Farm produces a wonderful variety of products including eggs, soap, produce, and farm crafts, all of which will be available for purchase after the tour.

This is not a trip you want to miss, so...
