There is a great magazine that is published right here in Austin, TX and one in which I have been fortunate enough to work with on a regular basis. For over forty years Acres U.S.A. has been sharing the benefits of sustainable agriculture to a national audience. We started collaborating over a year ago and so far I have provided them with six covers as well as photos for several of their articles. This has been a wonderful opportunity for me to branch out from the photography of vegetables at JBG Organic, and has given me a reason to travel to other farms in an effort to expand my portfolio and relationships.
During my two trips out to Sand Creek Farm in Cameron, TX, I was introduced to dairy cattle, draft horse, and aquaponics, for last years livestock and homesteading issues. Next I spent some time with the students at Farmshare Austin for the young farmers issue. Most recently, I visited Richardson Farms in Rockdale, TX for this years livestock issue.
Here are the other five covers and a selection of cattle from Richardson Farms. My next blog post will be about my recent trip out to Blanco for the Lavender Festival.
