    We have launched our new online bookstore through Amazon. These are just some of the books we feature in our bookstore. We are working to set up more affiliate options so you can access the books that we offer at our conference bookstore.

    I have been raising Pastured Chickens for several years.  Two (2) years ago we started using a layer feed recommended by our son, Brad Stufflebeam.  He had been using it because of a desire to have No GMO in his feed.  Without Corn or Soy it was more likely to be assured!

    I picked some up while I visited him in Brenham, TX.  It had such great results I have used it exclusively ever sense.  The problem was it was only available as a special blend by the Cargil Mill in Gettings, TX.  I found it in a feed store that my son knew carried it in Caldwell, TX.  I recently got  a local Cargil representative to make it available in the down town McKinney, TX, Collin County Feed Store.  If an interested is shown he will continue to carry it. 

    I have been selling my eggs, when available, at the McKinney Market.  Everyone one has thought they were the best eggs they have ever had.  Several persons especially like them because of food allergies they have to Corn, Soy, and other egg issues.  They can eat these eggs with no issues.   We now sell them exclusively to Customer's that pick up from us or we deliver to. 

    Please try the feed, the price is the best I've found, and It is the best Feed I've used! 

    50 @ $21 bag.

    Hello everyone,


       Vermi-Tex will be in full-scale, commercial production of organic, soil conditioning products by the end of the year.  We will be manufacturing vermi-casts, vermi-compost and vermi-tea based on the latest vermi-agroproduction technology methods.

       We will have a storefront centrally located in Nolanville, TX and a production facility close to Temple, TX.  Although we are in our infancy, we plan to be producing thousands of pounds of worm products a month.

       Our web page is still under construction, but we hope to have that up soon.  If anyone is interested in learning more about our products, please give me a call.  I would love to hear from you.


    Regards and have a great day,


    Jim "Bubba" Creamer

    Elgin, Texas

    The Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (TOFGA) today announced its Disaster Relief Fund to support farmers and ranchers who have suffered  due to the recent wildfires and severe drought.  "Our members are small family farms and ranches that cannot absorb the losses from these disastrous fires and drought conditions," said Sue Beckwith president of TOFGA.

    TOFGA urges every Texan to support sustainable family farmers.  "Texas does not have enough farmers who are producing clean and safe food for our families," said Brad Stufflebeam of Home Sweet Farm, a farm in Brenham that supplies fresh produce to families in Houston.  "We can't afford to lose any local producers."

    Farmers in Iowa are donating certified organic hay to help Texas farmers.  "This is an incredible gift," stated Cameron Molberg, General Manager of Coyote Creek Organic Feed Mill in Elgin.  "We need to raise the money to pay for trucking to get it down here."

    Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association is an 501(c)3 educational non-profit organization supporting the people who produce and provide organic and sustainable food in Texas through education, production and marketing support.

    TOFGA has signed on to a letter to Ag. Secretary Vilsack telling him to regulate genetically engineered crops.  The USDA is poised to issue new GE crop regulations. Congress and the biotech industry are pressuring the USDA to weaken its GE regulations, which would make it even easier for GE crops to be approved. Thank you to the Organic Consumer's Organization for taking the lead on this.
