Our Farmers – Appleby Community Farm

Appleby Community Farm – Community Supported Agriculture.

Meet Cindy and Bryan Pruett

Booth 13

We originally felt called to Nacogdoches, TX in 2007 to purchase and run a Bed and Breakfast. But because of an unexpected detour, God had time to direct our attention to farming. During that two-year interim, we were exposed to the serious problem that is industrial agriculture- beginning with but not exclusively through the culture-changing book, Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan.  We became increasingly convinced that we should become part of the solution.

In 2009, along with Cindy’s parents, 9 acres were purchased in Appleby Community outside of Nacogdoches. We immediately began to farm – very ineptly, but God blessed our intentions, and we had a remarkably successful first fall season. We sold fresh organic produce all fall and winter at the farmer’s market. The growing enthusiasm for local, organic food is overwhelming. What was at first simply a desire to follow God’s prompting has now become a sacred trust. We accept the responsibility of feeding as many families who are able financially and/or physically to be a part of the farm and as many as we are able that cannot. http://www.applebycommunityfarm.org http://https;//www.facebook.com/applebycommunityfarm
