Conventional agriculture has left more than just a bad taste in our mouths. At Loam Agronomics we’re doing our best to change that with a model that’s to the scale of larger “conventional” farms, but with a focus on doing right by you and the Earth. Our 288 acres of heaven works hard to produce safe and nutrient dense vegetables for the Houston region.





Jolie Vue Farms is an all-natural, chemical free farm which grows the high protein native grasses of Texas to feed our free-range beef and pastured pork.   Our animals are treated the way God intended- they live outside, free roaming, enjoying sunshine and rain while they choose what to eat.  No hormones, no vitamins, no stimulants, no appetite enhancers, nor antibiotics.  Family owned and operated for 13 years so our quality and commitment remain high.

Whitehurst Heritage Farms uses rotational grazing and organic practices to raise chickens, eggs, turkeys and hogs in a way that mimics animals' natural patterns in nature.  They believe in complete transparency in their artisan methods and how they care for their animals. Owners Michael and Leslie Marchand, along with their children, decided to return to their family’s agricultural heritage and raise animals and grow plants in a way that honors their ancestors.
