Event Details

Important info:

1. Please secure tickets for all adults in your party.

If you're bringing kiddos please plan to supervise them at all times. We will be meeting on a working farm with animals and equipment, so it will be extra important to keep track of small (and large) children.

2. Bring Bevs & Snacks/Samples

Bring what you plan to imbibe! Adult bevs welcome, though this swap will be kid-friendly so kid bevs welcome, too!

Also, we hope you'll bring something you made for everyone to snack on. Not required, but it makes the experience tastier (and maybe helps to move your swap item, yeah for taster samples)! You don't have to bring the same potluck item as what you brought to swap.

Please be sure to bring whatever you need to serve your snackage. We have cups, plates, napkins and forks, but you'll need to bring your own serving platters, knives, ladles, etc.

Special thanks to Tecolote Farm for offering to host our April swap. Visit them on the web or on Facebook!

How the Swap Works

Our food swap is a place where you can trade an item you made for another item that someone else made. Items are swapped 1-for-1. For example: You have a loaf of bread to swap.

You'll wrap it up and be prepared to take home in trade for that loaf, a jar of some home-preserved goodness, a half-dozen backyard eggs, a bag of homemade crackers or cookies, or whatever you see on the table that looks good to you.

You can bring as many items (the same or all different, whatever) to trade as you'd like. We usually bring 5-10 items each, but some folks make big batches of things and end up with 20 or more individual items. The more you bring, the more you take home in the end. All items should be packaged with the principle in mind that all packaged items are equal (i.e. don't expect to take home two items for your one).

The official swap and trade interactions will start right at noon, so don't show up after then with hopes to swap.

Location Details and Parking

To get to Tecolote Organic Farm from central Austin:
Take MLK east out of town. MLK becomes FM 969 at 183. Go east on MLK/969 about 8 miles past 183. You'll cross Decker Lane (the road to the rodeo), FM 973, and the new toll road.

When you are entering a wide, right-hand curve and leaving the developed area take the first left after the Exxon gas station, it's Taylor Lane. Immediately turn left again on Decker Lake Road and go half a mile. We're the first mailbox/driveway on the left: 16301. Come s l o w l y up the driveway (no dust clouds, please), then park in the grass across the driveway from our house, just off the drive, next to the farm crew's cars. Sundays are harvest days for our Monday CSA deliveries, so the farm will be in action. Please make sure cars are not blocking any thoroughfares. Thanks!

We look forward to seeing you again and swapping wares!
