Marji met up with Carol Ann Sayle and her husband Larry at Boggy Creek Farm in Austin, Texas, where they run one of the oldest urban farms in the country. Decades ago this couple — an artist and real estate professional — combined their love of gardening and some good business sense to create their 15-acre urban farm.
This FarmHer grows and raises a wide variety of crops and livestock to sell at her Farm Stand, where more than 25 chefs come daily to purchase fresh meat and produce for their restaurants.
