A Brief History

What began organically as farmers got together to talk about farming, show off their fields, and share information and bulk order discounts in the mid to late 1990s and early 2000s, the Growers Alliance of Central Texas officially formed as a unit in early 2010. This grassroots organization became a non-profit in 2015, following the Austin Food & Wine Alliance's grant award in December 2014.
