Brothers Daniel and Thomas Garcia-Pratts have teamed up for an exciting new venture in the East End – Houston’s first private farm inside the 610 Loop. Finca Tres Robles, located just 4 miles from Houston’s City Hall, will play fertile host to organic herbs, fruits and vegetables to be sold to individuals and restaurants directly from the farm as well as at area farmers markets.
The site, which lay vacant for nearly 18 years, has transitioned from an asphalt eyesore to the private urban farm that it is now over the past six months.
They are currently offering memberships to the local community. In order to qualify, however, you must be a resident in the 77011 zip code that extends from Jenkins east to 75th Street and from the Buffalo Bayou south to Harrisburg Blvd. A membership requires sweat equity by the community member to maintain status in return for 50%+ discounts on produce, classes, seeds, and even access to free mulch. To learn more about becoming a member, visit their website at smallplaces.org.
The farm will soon be hosting a market twice a week to sell the fresh produce grown on site.
We’re thrilled to welcome Finca Tres Robles to the East End community and look forward to sampling their locally grown produce.
