About the Farmers
The Williams Family
Doug and Dacia Williams graduated from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. Dacia spent her time at university studying Exercise, Sports Studies and Education. Doug concentrated on Agronomy, Range Management and Wildlife Science. While both have roots in agriculture, they come from very different backgrounds. Doug grew up working on the watermelon and tomato fields of East Texas and Dacia on the big AG of the Oklahoma Panhandle, where her Grandfather farmed wheat & corn most of his life. When they met in college, they immediately started backyard gardening at every house they lived in. After graduation and marriage, they headed back to East Texas to begin their careers; Dacia as an Educator/Coach, and Doug as a Wildlife Biologist on some amazing private ranches. Several years, many gardens and two beautiful children later they both decided to leave their stable careers to farm in Edom, Texas. That began their journey of growing fresh clean food for their family as well as for the community. They began growing for farmers markets in the Dallas, Texas area, and delivering to wholesale distributors and local grocery stores, as well as their own farmers market in Edom. Moving to Winslows’s Farm, Doug and Dacia will be growing fresh, organic veggies and tending to sustainably grown livestock, and poultry. They are excited to be joining the Team of Winslow’s Home and Farm, and the CSA Community that helps support this beautiful farm.
“There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery store, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.”
