TXFED.org is a peer-to-peer network made by and for farmers, ranchers, and farmers market organizers.

The successful outcome for TXFED is for local food producers and farmers markets to increase customers and sales, develop new market opportunities, and create jobs leading to economic sustainability of Texas local food systems. 


  • Create a sustainable statewide collaborative providing a single source of consistent, reliable, high-quality, peer training and technical assistance.

  • Develop an online training system accessible via any device both asynchronously (on demand) and synchronously (live in real time), with classes available in English and Spanish.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Texas Center for Local Food is committed to upholding diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work. TXFED.org seeks to deliver enriching educational experiences and connect with an audience that reflects of our diverse Texas local food system. We believe every member of our food system deserves equal opportunity to learn and share their experience.

TCLF staff and statewide TXFED.org collaborators are honored to amplify the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and other historically underserved members of our food system. TXFED.org is a platform to share knowledge and resources as we collectively grow a more equitable regional food system. Just like our food crops, our projects and courses thrive when we embrace diversity.

We appreciate and actively solicit feedback on improving the TXFED platform, course content, and user experience. We analyze course evaluation responses when we review courses. Anyone can share feedback to [email protected] at anytime.

  • All courses have at least 30% Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) represented in the content.
  • All courses have English Closed Captions and Spanish subtitles. 
  • All downloadable activities are available in Word Document and are screen-reader friendly and accessible
  • Coupon codes are available upon request  - email [email protected]

At TXFED.org, our courses are held to the values aligned with TCLF. We collaborate with partners who share our commitment to integrity, inclusivity, and innovation. As a peer-to-peer platform, diverse experiences and views are shared, that may not always reflect the opinions of all TXFED.org contributors.
