Howdy! Farm Needs YOUR HELP!  

Our Goal!   

With your support we believe Howdy! Farm can raise $45,000.

Read below to see our current plans, and then read even farther to see what your contribution will support!

Our New Sustainability Center: COMING IN MAY!!!

  • Completely reclaimed (used) materials
  • Housing classes and workshops
  • A hub for information dissemination
  • A commemorative representation of agriculture through the ages

We are literally growing our educational farm and student-run business by providing students with high-impact, experiential learning opportunities. Your contribution will fund day-to-day operations and sustainable demonstration garden construction, creating a beautiful, ecologically-oriented campus farm. 

Our Mission is to serve the Texas A&M student body.  We will reconnect students with their food source, shaping future leaders in agriculture.

How You Can Help Us GROW!
