It is possible that Google Maps may miss the exact location by a couple of turns. Basically, go east on FM 969, cross FM 1704, turn right onto Howard Lane before you get to FM 1209, then turn right again just before the big greenhouse in to the farm.
The mission of New Farm Institute (NFI), a 501c3 nonprofit, is to educate, assist and inspire citizens and a new generation of sustainable farmers, with a focus on the urban fringe — an area defined as within 30 miles of medium to large cities.
