The seeds for the Central Texas Farmers Co-op were planted back in September of 2016. A group of young farmers and farming advocates began to meet on a monthly basis to discuss the opportunities and benefits that might be created through working together, rather than in competition.
From these meetings a new cooperative association was formed. The Central Texas Farmers Co-op is jointly owned and democratically controlled by small and beginning farmers in Hays, Caldwell, Blanco, and Travis county. The CTFC currently operates a multi-farm Community Supported Agriculture program in the Spring and Fall in San Marcos, Buda, and Austin, TX.
