With Thanksgiving approaching, I thought it’d be a good time to go visit Bradley’s farm. In exchanged for our cooked barley, he brings us fresh vegetables every week! Bradley takes our “spent grain” and wineries’ grape pressings to make compost for his fields. Below you can see a picture of his free range chickens wandering over for a closer inspection.
Bradley is incredibly impressive having cultivated nearly 14 acres by himself! Just look how long the row of heirloom broccolini Bradley’s standing in is. He’s also constructed large hoop houses to help protected his crops from the Texas summers and thunderstorms.
It’s important to remember what small, local businesses can do. Farms like Bradley’s help craft breweries by recycling, thus lowering cost. They also provide heirloom vegetables to markets & restaurants in town. Amanda & I like it in Dripping Springs and our proud to have a business here!
p.s. Speaking of small business, If you’re ever in Dripping Springs make sure to check out Bruce and Vicky’s place Mazama Coffee Co.
