What a great weekend weatherwise we had this past Saturday. We are thankful for all the patrons who came out to shop and support local businesses.
This month our farmers have been working hard to prep their farms & gardens as their growth season begins.
We are really fortunate that we get three seasons overall here in the Houston area however with the colder temperatures, situations and tensions in the world the last two years our farmers are struggling. However, with their deep love for the land and farming they are always looking for ways to go more green and to bring healthy local alternatives to our tables. The soil, animals and bees need everyone's help to continue to produce healthy farm to table foods for our families.
You may have noticed we have a new email domain. Our new email address is contact.us@TomballFM.org please add this to your address books.
