    “Ridiculously juicy peaches” really is the only way to describe them! You can practically drink these peaches!

    The peaches are fantastic!

    One comment or suggestion – when the monthly local bin items are listed on the website can you be a little more descriptive on their place of origin. Just curious. Thanks!

      Hi Bradley, Glad you love the peaches. They are very good! We can sometimes offer up the town that the produce is from but the specific farmers, etc is a trade secret. If it says local, then it is within Texas and usually within a 200 mile radius of DFW. πŸ™‚

        Any change you might consider using local produce from other states, such as south Oklahoma? I know we Texans love our state dearly, but plenty of farmers in the OK state (and parts of Louisiana and Arkansas too!) are well within 200 miles of us.

        I have long dreamed that Dallasites would warm up to the idea of considering produce from other states as still being local. While I appreciate the business that’s in the state, I also realize that foods coming from places as far as Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri may be more local than something traveling from El Paso or Brownsville.

        I’m just curiuos if there’s a compelling reason, other than state pride and supporting taxes, etc. of Texas agri-business to keep in the state as opposed to something even closer.

        Hi Beth,

        Everyone defines local in their own way. The way Urban Acres defines local is that we could have our morning cup of fair wage coffee before we get in the truck and be back to have a wonderful dinner with our family the same day. We’d love to reach out to farmers who grow organically in near by states but we simply have not found a concentration of them that could supply us what we need to make the trip. We are always open to new farmers that produce amazing organic goodies so if you have an recommendations we’d love to hear it. Thanks for your support of Urban Acres and being a part of a community trying to make a small difference.

    We grilled our Tx sweet corn last night at our friends’ anniversary party- it was so good by its self that most people ate it without putting anything on it… not to mention the peaches were gone as soon as I brought them… Yea! party success! πŸ˜€
