Welcome to the Greer Farm, a unique rural haven tucked away from the stresses of urban America. We are please that you have chosen to visit us.
Located near Daingerfield, Texas, the farm consists of lush pastures and towering pine and hardwood trees nestled in the slow moving world of Northeast Texas. Here, we raise vegetables and herbs, hay, fruit and berries, flowers, pine timber and fullblood red and white Maine-Anjou beef cattle. We also offer unique culinary experiences through private dining, catering and Farm to Fork cooking classes. Our natural beef, poultry and pork is delicious and healthy.
Our goal is to be a Center of Excellence in Sustainable Agriculture demonstrating that a family farm can be profitable, practice environmental stewardship and produce a stable food supply and timber into perpetuity without degrading the natural resources that support production processes.
Our cattle eat only fresh grass forages and hay. No grain unless you request it! We believe grass finishing is better for the cattle and better for the consumer. Our site offers more information on ordering our beef or contact us directly. We are taking orders at this time for 2013 delivery. In addition to beef by the split quarter or half (less expensive way to buy) we have grass-finished beef available by the individual packaged cut; ground beef, steaks, etc. New in 2013 we also have available free-range raised whole chickens and pasture raised pork by the individual piece (various cuts).
In 2005 we planted a berry and fruit orchard with blueberries, blackberries, figs, and plums. 2013 will be our eighth season at Greer Farm Pick Your Own. We welcome you to come out or call and see what we have available. Blackberries ripen starting in late May, blueberries in late May or early June, and everything else shortly thereafter. Pre-picked berries are available in season and frozen are available all year. The berry season ends in mid to late July and figs last into August.
We offer a farm stay unlike any other. Come and experience life on a working farm and ranch while staying in one of our four luxury log cabins. See what life on a farm is really about! Wander through our forest trails, enjoy bird watching or fish for bass and catfish in our lake. Arrange for a meal cooked by Chef Eva (groups of eight or more). We have re-opened the Loft Apartment as an option for our overnight guests. It has a private bedroom down and loft sleeping area up a spiral staircase.
Chef Eva offers some of the best cuisine in this part of Texas, prepared and served with the utmost attention to detail. With the chef's international background, big city training and small town hospitality you are certain to have a meal to remember. Lunch and dinner menus are available for groups by prior arrangement. Occasionally, she prepares special dinners for smaller groups or for special occasions like anniversaries.
Chef Eva also offersscheduled Farm to Fork Cooking Classes here at the farm. Her 2013 classes have a lot of variety and interesting menus. In addition to these classes, arrangements can be made for private classes. These have been popular with families wanting some bonding time, groups of friends or as a corporate team building activity.
The Greer Farm has a unique retail special order nursery. We do not stock many plants and trees nor do we deal in the normal annual plants you can buy at discount stores. We have planted a diverse selection of unique plants, many native to Texas, that give a different balance, texture and color scheme to your garden. Our display gardens let you see our plants in a natural environment. We can work with you to find the right plants for your home. Please see the photo album for examples of the hundreds of different plants to which we have access.
We think we have a unique farm with some different approaches to making a living off the land. From our circa 1850 restored Texas farm home to the log cabins, barns and share cropper buildings on the old homestead, we have tried to maintain the integrity of this land for future generations. The management of our forest has taken into consideration the aesthetics of the land as much as possible. On our farm, we practice sustainable agriculture techniques striving to improve the land. When you visit us we can show you what we have accomplished.
We invite you to visit us to take a cooking class, dine, pick some berries in the summer, see our cattle and nursery-gardens, purchase packaged meat or stay with us for a unique farm stay. Please feel free to contact us.
