In 1979, Sara Sweetser Bolton bought the farm. The Pure Luck Organics farm, that is. Although it was not a farm back when she bought it, just a large, sloping pasture fronting on fertile Barton Creek, located six miles west of Dripping Springs, Texas.
I was looking for a peaceful place in the country, where my two daughters, Gitana and Amelia could grow up and be exposed to the rural lifestyle. I wanted to put in an organic garden and raise some dairy goats, says Sara.
The ten-acre parcel of land she found had been a working tomato farm in the 1930s, and time old farmhouse was the homestead for the several hundred-acre farm. Our cheeses are carried by heath oriented grocery stores, restaurants, and other organic farms.
People ask me all the time, says Sara, how do I get the kids to help out on the farm? The secret is, and I am serious about this, when the TV breaks down, do not fix it. And I am sort of like Tom Sawyer whitewashing that fence. I make it fun planting, weeding, harvesting, making bouquets, making cheese, milking goats, and the kids just want to get in on it.
