TALKING TREE FARM

We are a farm cooperative which invites regenerative driven agricultural small businesses to join forces on one land to better sustain a balanced ecosystem. Our individual passions and careers compliment & benefit each others through their natural impact on the environment. We are a community of business owners helping each other with the hopes that our model can be used as an example for others and replicated throughout the world.

 

Money spent on a class or a membership is an investment in yourself, but also supports our partners & the future of our local food systems. Any profit Talking Tree makes will be reinvested into improving our project.

*We are currently practicing safe physical distancing while in an outdoor setting.

 

Our Story

My French husband and I met in the south of Thailand, where we lived on the beach, farmed in the sand, and lived off-grid for many years. We arrived in San Antonio, my hometown, in 2015 with the dream of sharing our knowledge on sustainable living and agricultural methods. For 3 years we lived in a camper on a friend's land and started a Permaculture Project known as Talking Tree Farm. In 2019, when our son was born, we transitioned the farm to the land we bought in Schertz, Texas. Our project grew and became a cooperative in 2021 & is now made up of 8 like-minded, small, local, agricultural business owners. We sell produce, eggs, honey, compost, mushrooms, & herbal teas at our farm stand (beneficial insects, cut flowers, & heirloom seeds coming soon). Become a farm member today and have access to our farm stand, discounts on our classes, harvest experiences for the family every month, exclusive food forest plant sales, & more. Providing quality food & goods to the community is something we are proud of, but teaching is something we are passionate about! It brings us joy to offer affordable classes, get you reconnected with where your food comes from, and bring the community together to make a difference.
