About Our Farm - On The Acre
On the Acre is a family owned and operated small business, located in Dickinson, Texas.
In his youth, Nick spent time in North Dakota where his grandparents were traditional farmers. Nathan, a native Houstonian, is a scientist at heart with a background in the Navy. Together we discovered a shared interest in agriculture and our community. Drawing on our individual experiences, we brought a diverse skill set to On the Acre’s formation. We set out to create an urban farm that embraces our community, sustainability, and modern farming methods. These concepts drive our evolving business philosophy. This venture has been possible because of our modern family dynamic, comprised of family, friends, and our community. We continue to be grateful for their support as we move forward.
On the Acre grows a diverse line of specialty produce which includes microgreens, edible flowers, specialty leaves, and microveg. Our list of clients includes restaurants and bars, caterers, bakeries, and home chefs. As a small business, we are uniquely driven to evolve with our customers. We tailor our product selection to be able to meet a wide range of needs and continually expand our catalog. We also engage our local community as a farm to table link by attending farmers markets, providing farm tours, and community education.
We are currently growing in a small indoor space, using a modified hydroponic method. We use organic practices and OMRI certified products whenever available. All of our seeds are non-GMO, and organic if possible. We use compostable and pre-recycled packaging for all of our products.
In order to grow with our clients and as a business, we are building an expanded grow space in Pearland, Texas. A larger space will enable On the Acre to make a wider impact on the community and extend the growing list of products we are able to provide. We are in the process of being accredited with Certified Naturally Grown. We will continue to give back to the community through ongoing educational tours, partnerships with schools, and increased education for youth.
