We understand preserving our history is as importance as creating our next chapter. In doing so, our growing website will spotlight our ORGANIC ROOTS and SACRED GROUND as well as showcase our next chapter, LEADING THE ORGANIC MOVEMENT.
In the meantime, we still want to share all the rewarding and exciting work we continue to do. We look forward to launching our new website soon. Thank you for your patience and continued support.

The mission of the Texas Department of Agriculture Organic Certification Program is to ensure the integrity of organic agriculture products produced and manufactured in Texas by providing certification services to Texas producers and agribusinesses.
As an accredited Certifying Agent by the United States Department of Agriculture National Organic Program, the TDA Organic Certification Program has the authority to certify organic producers as well as processors, distributors and retailers of organic agricultural products. To be certified, an operation must comply with organic production and handling regulations established by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP).
GROW. FEED. IGNITE.
Changing Lives Through
Organic Nutrition and Education
Farming is an occupation where you can naturally connect with Mother Earth and more importantly, to your God. You touch the soil, hear the birds, smell the herbs, taste the vegetables and see the happiness it brings people.
It’s a difficult occupation, but it mirrors everything a person goes through in life – hardship, celebrations, success, failure, prayer, and finally, realization that the most important thing about life is people.
