Finca Tres Robles

Finca Tres Robles is Houston’s only private farm inside 610, just 3 miles from downtown. Located in el Segundo Barrio on Houston’s East Side, we sustainably grow herbs, fruits and vegetables for individuals and families in the community. We are working to challenge the food system of the neighborhood and improve health outcomes of its residents to build community and keep money here in our immediate local, economy.

3 Oaks Farms

Our newest project, 3 Oaks Farms, focuses on the production of the moringa tree, an easy to use super food with one of the most nutrient-rich leaves of any plant, perfect for Houston’s subtropical climate. By utilizing the sale of moringa products to enrich the diets of communities, we will continue to demonstrate that urban farming is an incredible tool to keep Houston residents healthy.

The nutrient quality of a moringa leaf is only as good as the soil it's grown in. We are proud to offer moringa which is locally grown, hand-planted, and hand-picked on our farm using sustainable practices. We shade-dry the leaves onsite to ensure the nutrients remain intact. Taste the difference!
