Help Farmers Keep Farming
Farm-1-1 is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that offers emergency and non-emergency labor, equipment, resources and consulting services to local farmers and homesteaders in central Texas in an effort to help farmers to overcome obstacles so that they can continue farming.
Sustainability in farming is the art of creating an ecological balance so the entire system works in unison. We have ducks and chickens and cats for pest maintenance. We let death and decay replenish the land and encourage it along by turning the soil. We let our sows and other animals decide when to have more babies and how to raise them.
Flavor and nutrition in food goes hand in hand. Our pork is both nutrient dense and delicious because we take great pains to create a balanced diet for our hogs. Our hogs also have plenty of space to range freely. They choose between shade trees and sunning in mud baths. We do not rush the growth of our hogs. We let them grow over a year to come to market weight naturally. This allows the herd to remain healthy and allows their meat to marble properly.
The word “heritage” refers to livestock that pre-dates industrial agriculture. This matters because modern livestock is bred for speed of growth and the convenience of raising under assembly line conditions. Large Black Hogs did not make the cut because they would never tolerate being raised in pens or having their infants taken away. However these beautiful beasts are known for their sweet flavor, well marbled meat, red eye on their chops, and pure white fat. This is a superior animal and a superior meat.
Eden's Cove Farm raises the finest pork in central Texas. Our heritage hogs are raised on pasture so that they soak up all that sunlight making their fat high in vitamin D. We do all of our own butchering (after they are slaughtered under inspection) and processing to make artisan bacon, sausage and ham as well as providing fresh cuts for your table.
Since we began in 2007 our focus as been on building community and sustainability. In that vein, we provide services like homesteading classes, raw milk pick ups, free use of our poultry processing center, and inexpensive kitchen rental. We also occasionally sell products from nearby farms.
Most of our pork sales are by CSA box or direct from the farm, however we can deliver to the Austin or Bastrop area. We'll also meet half way for our Houston and San Antonio customers if the order is over $300.
