Founded and operated by brothers Thomas and Daniel Garcia-Prats, Finca Tres Robles is Houston’s first private farm inside the 610 Loop, located in Houston’s East Side just 4 miles from Houston’s City Hall. They are growing organic herbs, fruits and vegetables to be sold to individuals and restaurants directly from their farm and at area farmers markets. While this produce will not only be healthy and accessible to individuals in the area, they are working to make it affordable to the immediate East End community as a way to begin to challenge the food system of the neighborhood, to build community, and to keep money here in their immediate, local economy. ?
They are offering various Farm Memberships to encourage participation and support of the farm and to show their commitment to the community through free Neighborhood Memberships to residents in the 77011 zip code. All Members receive discounts (10%) on all farm produce, classes, and transplants with additional discounts and benefits available to members that get more directly involved in the farm as Committed Members. By offering classes on the farm covering a wide variety of food and health related topics, they will diversify the business as well as create another way to get more people out to the farm to empower them with the skills necessary to take their health into their own hands.
