The Georgetown Farmers Market Association unites more than 50 growers from 11 nearby counties to treat shoppers to a bounty of wholesome produce, free-range eggs, artisanal breads, and canned goods. Not only does the bumper crop of fresh greens, fruits, and veggies keep clients eating healthily, but it also connects consumers to their surrounding land and agriculture industry. While perusing bushels of onions, tomatoes, peppers, and melons, visitors can mingle with local farmers to shake the very hands that harvest the crops and learn the secret fifth verse of the Green Acres theme song.
Bella Peregrina Ranch does more than teach students how to ride horses. Instead, it helps them develop relationships with their steeds. Lessons show riders how to feel and interpret the horse’s movements and understand how horses communicate. Once the human and horse bond is complete, students can take part in Bella Peregrina Ranch’s trail rides to get out in the open air. Performances take horsemanship skills to the next level.

The seventh annual Art Outside Festival quenches creative appetites with live music, artists, and a plentitude of interactive workshops and performances. Over 70 bands ally to form the three-day musical lineup, featuring musicians such as Hobotech, Stereo Is A Lie, and Pumpkin. Austin-area youths Residual Kid will move crowds with driving beats even though they aren't old enough to apply for learner's permits, and lots house art cars and geared wildlife from the Austin Bike Zoo to occupy vehicle aficionados. Lay hands on creativity through interactive video displays or marvel at artists filling the tented gallery with freshly painted pieces. Aerial-acrobatic and fire-sculpture demonstrations stretch the imagination as yoga classes stretch the body, and giant artworks stretch canvas over dilapidated barn doors.
For more than 100 years, generations of the dedicated Field family have produced antibiotic-, hormone-, and preservative-free beef from grain-finished, grass-fed cattle at Branch Ranch Natural's farm. Branch Ranch's beef is sourced from the farm's pasture-raised cattle and are processed and distributed at the farm as well, ensuring customers know where their meals have come from. Furthering their dedication to their beef, ranch hands can trace each animal's birthplace and long-lost cousins with the farm's DNA-identification technology. Patrons can limber up chomping muscles for wood-chucking contests with top sirloin steaks ($53.50 for four steaks) or anoint unadorned grills with half-pound steak burgers ($18.75 for six patties). Spicy beef breakfast sausage ($15 for 3 lbs.) rewards early-rising appetites, and the choice fajita meat ($19.95 for 1.5 lbs.) enfolds itself in warm tortillas to hide from threatening fingers.
