Meet the Blue Earth Farm Family

The Austin Kitchen Gardner Family

  • Hello, I am Javier Gonzalez, farmer at Blue Earth Farm. Prior to starting the farm, I owned The Kitchen Gardener, where I designed and installed edible gardens for restaurants and homes. I am passionate about helping people grow their own food. It has been a lifelong dream to start my own farm and I am grateful I can put my knowledge and experience into our own 10 acre farmstead.

I'm constantly researching organic techniques, restorative agriculture and permaculture design, all while learning directly from nature through my own experience in the field. I like to experiment with new ideas and new techniques to find what works best for our challenging and unpredictable Central Texas climate. I am also the welder, animal herder and fence builder.

  • Hi, I am Joanna I am a licensed social worker.  I believe in social justice, caring for our community and treating everyone with love and respect. Growing healthy food to share is one of my greatest joys. I believe what is good for the Earth, is good for the animals, is good for the land, is good for our health, which is good for our community. I like giving our pigs too many snacks and checking on my bees.

I grew up in Buda and attended Hays High school and it is good to be back home. I met Javi when we both worked at Thundercloud Subs over 13 years ago in a very Austin love story. I have learned so much about how to live a positive life from him. We have two amazing daughters, Clara and Lucy.

  • Hi, I am Clara. I want to be an artist. I am really good at catching the chickens when they get out and I love cats. I like taking photos and reading.
    • Hi, I am Lucy. I am good at making beautiful bouquets and fresh squeezed lemonade. I love flowers.
