Our app allows our customers in Dallas, Waco, Temple, and Austin to build their farm ‘boxes’ right from their phones.

For the first time ever, Central Texans can order locally-grown vegetables, honey, meats, eggs, and more directly from The Home Grown Farm’s new iPhone app.

The Home Grown Farm, a family-run farm that offers a fully customizable CSA online, has further merged technology with agriculture. With the release of The Home Grown Farm’s iPhone app, customers can, in moments, order their week’s vegetables and other items and have them delivered the next day.

“Our app allows our customers in Dallas, Waco, Temple, and Austin to build their farm ‘boxes’ right from their phones,” says co-owner and CEO Toby Tull. “When they pick up their tubs, they are receiving nothing but the freshest produce, harvested within hours of delivery.”

Community Supported Agriculture programs, or “CSAs” as they’re more frequently known, allow consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Typically, CSAs do not allow consumers to choose the produce they receive. The Home Grown Farm distinguishes itself from other CSAs by leveraging technology to give customers the ability to “shop” online for food from the Home Grown Farm and other nearby producers. “Our customers are presented with a bountiful selection of local food grown with integrity that they can feel good about,” says Tull.

The Home Grown Farm app “HGF Shop” has been beta-tested and is currently live in the Apple App Store and available at http://homegrwn.com/hgfphone. The Android version is coming soon.
