What’s special about Hat & Heart's Farm Club?
Hat & Heart Farm grows what we sell. This may seem obvious, but it’s actually become a common practice for farms to buy produce from other regions to offer a year long CSA or fill out a lean growing season. We get it: it’s tough to grow food in Texas. But when the farmer plays middle-man between you and your food, it takes you one step further away from the source. Here at Hat & Heart Farm, we believe you’ve joined our Farm Club because you have faith in our methods and you trust that our food is fresh, clean, and local. We rarely make exceptions, and will let you know if we include a treat in the produce bags that we didn’t grow (like lettuce year round, potatoes, and fruit). No matter what, we’ll keep you up to speed.
Working with the best.
As proud as we are to grow clean, fresh, local food we know we can't do it all. That's why we choose to work with the absolute best and most local producers and artisans for our added offerings. Growers and makers all weave the same cloth of sustainable living. We think it's important to support and honor our fellow producers crafts. We personally know and vet every add-on artisan or grower and not only honor but also love their methods and practices. We offer our very own produce, eggs, pecans and pickles in pride of place next to these incredible and real products including bread, yogurt, vinegar, flowers, coffee, olive oil, pork and cheese. We will add special guest add-on's like berries and peaches as they come into local season. Follow along each week as our offerings expand. Our standards are high so it often takes some time to find the next great maker. If you have a local business who might fit our culture around here, let us know!

We are honored to work with these people and so proud to share their life's work with you. Follow our blog as we feature each producer.
WHAT’S IN MY BOX?
Each week of the season, our members receive a box full of fresh, seasonal vegetables grown right here at Hat & Heart Farm. The actual contents will vary depending on what’s ripe this week—we harvest the day before we deliver! To get a sense of what to expect, sign up for club membership below.
In addition, Hat & Heart Farm proudly partners with several local farms and businesses to expand the range of offerings available for delivery with your weekly share of vegetables and eggs. These optional add-ons provide your family with high quality products while supporting the local economy. The best part? We’re keeping your life simple. Your customized order is delivered with your box of vegetables each week, keeping your errand list short and sweet. Each week, select your add-ons in the web store by Tuesday at noon, and we’ll take care of the rest for pick-up on Friday.

How it works
Typical CSA's require a season subscription and usually some type of upfront or automatic payment. Our club was born out of the coronavirus pandemic (very a-typical) so our farm club membership program is also not typical. Every week is a new week. These are unusual times and we understand that customers may want to order every single week (thank you to those that do!), or every other week, or buy one once in a while for yourself or as a gift to someone in need.
Every week we send out an email on Mondays with a list of what we are harvesting each week and any other newsworthy notes. Customers have until Tuesday noon to place their order on our Shop tab. We do not ship boxes. All boxes must be picked up in-person at one of our pick-up locations on Thursday or Friday of that week. Your order will be available for pick-up at the location of your choice (you will designate your preferred location at member sign up so we know where to send your box).
Anyone can pick-up for you. If you are unable to collect your box or send someone to do so in the designated pick-up window and we do not hear from you, your box will be donated to the local food bank.
In case of unforeseen events. Nature is unpredictable, and there are times when our field needs a break. In cases of severe weather or pest plagues, we reserve the right to cut back on available boxes, delay delivery, skip a week’s delivery, or halt a club delivery season entirely. We put the land first so that our family and the ecosystem we live in has a long-lived, sustainable future. You can rest assured, however, that we’ll never ask you to pay for a box that we can’t deliver. We'll keep you in the loop.
RECYCLE YOUR FARM CLUB BOX
In every aspect of our business, we strive for more sustainability. Now, with your help, we’d like to extend that effort
to the cardboard delivery boxes we use each week.
Our members are invited to return their clean, empty Hat & Heart Farm Club boxes to us for reuse or recycling each week.
Boxes sturdy enough for reuse will be disinfected and used following week, and damaged boxes will be
returned to the earth in the form of compost or mulch in the gardens.
There are two ways you can help. When you pick up your share, (1) transfer your share to your own box or bag,
leaving the cardboard box behind, or (2) bring the box back with you the following week.
