Hackberry Gardens

Hackberry Gardens

Hackberry Gardens, named after the abundance of hackberry trees on the land, is an unassuming 15 acre family-owned farm located near Thrall, Texas, a remote suburb on the outskirts of Austin. Lisa and Perry Silvas, along with their 3 kids James, Garrett and Noella, began working their land in 2014 with a vision to raise animals in a healthful, holistic way for their community. Striving to ensure their food was of the highest quality they worked the land for 2 years before selling to the public a year ago, in 2016. The Silvas’ felt it vital to try everything they planned to provide for their own family before selling to others.
