About Farmshare

Located on a 10-acre certified organic farm in Southeastern Travis County, Farmshare Austin cultivates the next generation of farmers and increases community food access. We offer opportunities in a learning community for adults who are interested in launching careers in organic and sustainable farming. Over 75 percent of the produce grown on the farm goes directly to our Fresh for Less Mobile Markets and Curbside Delivery, a weekly, reliable food access program serving 22 zip codes in the Eastern Crescent of Austin and Travis County.  


Since 2014, we have graduated 86 adults from our 20-week Farmer Starter beginning farmer training, of whom nearly 80% are working in agriculture or an agriculture-related field. 


Since fall 2016, Farmshare’s food access work has focused on Fresh for Less Mobile Markets and Curbside Delivery, a partnership with local government that provides a weekly, reliable source of reduced price, farmers’ market quality fresh produce and nutrient-dense grocery items to low-income customers in the Eastern Crescent of Austin and Travis County.
