Carol Ann Sayle

Region: Blackland Prairie

Topics: Farming, Organic Foods, Agriculture

With her husband, Larry Butler, Carol Ann Sayle runs the Boggy Creek Farm, a certified organic urban farm in Austin (one of the first in Texas). They produce between 50 and 60 pesticide-free crops and a variety of value-added canned and smoked foods, which they sell at their farm, through farmers' markets, and within traditional retail groceries. Through her work at the Farm, her mentoring of Farm apprentices, and her networking with the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, she has been effective in promoting more sustainable alternatives to conventional agriculture.
