Historic Boggy Creek (vegetable) Farm. Two miles from downtown. Open to the public Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays from 8am-1pm & in August we are only open on Wednesdays & Saturdays from 8am-1pm. Our 5 acres urban farm offers one of the two oldest homes in Austin (Sam Houston ate here in 1841!), freshly harvested produce, meats & cheeses from locally & ethically raised animals, value added products and fresh eggs. Visitors are free to stroll around the grounds of the working farm and kids love seeing our 150 happy hens!
