History of Barnison Farm
We purchased our ten acre Southeast Austin property in 2004 with no prior agricultural experience, but with plenty of big dreams and motivation. Nine months later we were selling our first batch of free range poultry products at the Downtown Austin Farmer's Market. From the day the chicks were born until the day they were passed across the counter to our customers, Jeremy was the only person to handle the bird. We were solely responsible for each animal from the feeding and caring for, to the processing and marketing. After four years of selling chickens at the market and interacting with several local chefs and restaurants, Jeremy found his true passion was in the kitchen, rather than in the field.
We still have a few animals on the farm, including a happy flock of laying hens. In the future we hope to expand our farm to include a variety of pastured animals and come to a happy balance of food and farming.
