Green Gate Farms

Cultivating Organic Food, Communities, and Farmers

Welcome to Green Gate Farms!

Green Gate Farms, a certified organic farm, was established by us (Skip Connett and Erin Flynn) in an underserved neighborhood in east Austin in 2006. Working off-farm jobs to fund our efforts, we restored a historic farm site to create a community resource for neighbors of all incomes. Our vision is to cultivate an organic farm that feeds the mind, body, and soul. The past few years have been a whirlwind! Come help as we add an Education Center and Pavilion to the farm!
