Program: Eat the Yard


Eat the Yard is an urban farming business dedicated to fortifying Dallas’ local food shed and supporting American veterans. Veterans Steve Smith and James Jeffers founded Eat the Yard in 2012. With sustainable methods and entirely organic practices, they sell the highest quality produce at the Dallas Farmers Market, local restaurants, grocers and folks within their community. Our urban farm includes every inch of James’ and Steve’s properties in Oak Cliff, friends’ yards, rooftops, and a 17-acre farm in Desoto, TX. As the Dallas food movement materializes, more people are demanding ultra-local, premium quality ingredients that Eat the Yard provide.
