Green Gate Farms urban farm is closed due to construction until 2020. In the meantime, we are readying our River Farm for weddings. For more information, contact us.

Weddings at the Farm

Just eight miles east of downtown Austin, our urban farm features majestic oak trees, wildflower meadows, acres of certified organic vegetables, flowers and herbs as well as a menagerie of farm animals — perfect for weddings!

Come see why Better Homes and Gardens featured our farm in its July 2011 issue! Farm tours held every Saturday at noon.

A portion of all wedding payment will be donated to our farm-based education nonprofit, the New Farm Institute.
