Start your Memorial Day weekend fun on Thursday May 26th with Happy Hour at Olamaie. They’ll have a happy hour menu of cocktails and appetizers. The suggested donation of $10 will benefit Dewberry Hills Farm and Slow Food Austin. On Saturday, April 30th a massive thunderstorm devastated their small, sustainable, pastured poultry farm. 75-mile-an-hour winds and torrential rain destroyed the movable chicken tents, flooded pastures, and many birds were lost. All of this, after financial loss due to damage from a tornado on December 13th. The farm is raising funds to be able to make significant infrastructure changes and be better prepared for any future weather events. Join us for happy hour and to show support for another farm in need.

Enjoy a spring day at Coyote Creek Farm. We’ll tour the farm and see the feed mill, the mobile chicken coops, and the egg washing shed. We’ll learn about their organic farming practices and how they maintain their non-gmo fields. Coyote Creek Farm is the only certified organic, non-gmo feed mill in Texas–and all the way from here to North Carolina.
All attendees will take home a dozen Coyote Creek eggs.
After the tour, a picnic lunch on the farm will be provided by Elgin Local Goods. Lunch will include:
Vegetable and egg torta made with Coyote Creek eggs
Local, organic vegetable salad
Pot de creme
Bring a blanket for the picnic lunch!
