The family farming heritage that inspired Harvest continues to shape a new kind of agrarian culture — one that values farm-to-table produce, modern country living, community connection, and homegrown friendships. In so many ways, our farm and gardens nourish the soul of our community.
The Harvest Farm & Orchard
The Harvest Farm is a fully functioning, on-site farm managed by Farmer Ross. He grows a variety of produce – such as lettuces, tomatoes and carrots – and sells them at farmers markets and to area hotels and restaurants. He also uses the produce for the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), a paid resident membership program. He drops off fresh produce that he grows as well as from local farmers he partners with directly on to the residents’ front door along with delicious recipes.
Meet Farmer Ross
As the operator of our on-site commercial farm, Farmer Ross is passionate about helping Harvest homeowners and kids connect with their food through classes, volunteer opportunities, and farming advice that’s both free and priceless.
Like many professional farmers, Farmer Ross has a master’s degree from one of the nation’s leading agricultural colleges, Texas A&M University. Unlike many of those professionals, however, his degree is in business! So while he’s using sustainable practices to grow fresh produce, he’s also building a thriving farming operation that serves local farmers markets and restaurants — while surplus crops go to the North Texas Food Bank.
Grow Your Knowledge
Farmer Ross offers on-site gardening classes to our residents for the different planting seasons and holds additional fun and interesting demonstrations every other month – everything from the benefits of lady bugs in a garden to making farm-fresh salsa.
Dr. Moon teaches Fall and Spring classes on home landscaping, writes a monthly blog and is always accessible for homeowner questions.
