What do you get when you combine one man who loves farming with a wife who is not-so-great at gardening, 3 very small children and 5 acres in Blue Ridge, Texas? Why, the Good Old Days Farm, of course!
Back in 2010, Papa the Farmer was working in Richardson, Texas as a software engineer. While he liked the work he was doing, he realized that his passion in life is preparing fresh, healthy food for people. He really wanted a life work that would get him out of his cubicle and allow him to serve others, be physically active himself, spend more time with his family and still stay out of debt. So, he quit his career in software and decided to turn our yard into a farm! It has taken two years of hard work and sacrifice, but we are finally open to customers!
If you’re local, you can buy produce from our gardens and orchards by clicking here. Our farm is run using a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model which means that our family personally grows the food onsite and we deliver fresh garden goodness directly to our customers. There are no middlemen here! It also means that you get incredibly fresh fruit and vegetables! Our produce is usually delivered within 24 hours of being picked!

Over the past two years Mama has been writing about this software-engineer-turned-farmer adventure. What she lacks in ability as a farmer, she makes up for in her ability as a writer! Be sure to follow the farm blog for farm updates, fun stories and general encouragement!
