OUR STORY

God-Centered & Family-Owned Business

Our story began like many others: with a vision of a better future for our children and family on our journey to walk in God's truth. Our hope for the future was to become closer to God and one another, become self reliant, teach our children where our food comes from, and be able to provide our family with healthy food and the skill set to produce such food themselves. 

This led us to purchasing our forever home and farm we have today.  We now happily raise an array of farm animals and produce, candles, bath salts, and more while continuing to live by Biblical principles. We are building our family and farm in spirit and love.

ABOUT OUR FARM

Tolleson Family Farm is owned and operated by our family of four.  We are passionate about producing healthy, wholesome food for your family.  We raise chickens, ducks, geese, and hogs.  All of our animal products are raised with our extremely high hygienic standards coupled with loving treatment.   We strive to sell live animals that are high quality. Our produce is grown without herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides.  We raise a mix of heirloom and hybrid fruits and vegetables. 

In addition to food products and live animals, we also hand make candles, bath salts, and canned goods.  Our candles are made with soy wax, essential oils, paraben-free fragrances, along with dried flowers, leaves, and herbs, much of which is foraged for or raised on our farm.  Our bath salts are made with essential oils, Black Sea salt, epsom salt, Himalayan pink salt, dried flowers, fruits, and herbs.

Grab some canned goods, candles, bath salts, fresh produce, and more from Tolleson Family Market at 300 Connally Street in downtown Sulphur Springs, TX to help support our small family run farm.
