Farmers: The Unsung Heroes

Farmhouse Delivery is proud to work with small-scale farmers and producers throughout Texas. We are passionate supporters of the local food movement, and want to make it convenient, affordable and exciting to eat fresh, seasonal local food.

We only work with high-quality Texas growers and producers who use organic methods and go the extra mile. They make sure their crops are harvested at the right time and that their products are packaged with care. These family farms, ranches and artisans are naturally more affected by unpredictable weather and the realities of a small operation.
