Zanzenberg Farm

Zanzenberg Farm’s mission is to cultivate community enrichment through local food production and education. Located in Center Point, Texas in Kerr County, Zanzenberg is the only farm in the region specializing in craft pork and raising heritage pigs on pasture. Grant funds will be used to fulfill its mission of educating the community by completing an on-farm, commercial class kitchen with teaching and demonstration space, offering a rare chance for people in the community to learn and understand whole animal utilization and how to source meat responsibly. Hands-on classes will be offered in humane animal husbandry and butchery, craft pork, charcuterie, whole animal utilization, and how those all tie into ecological and regenerative farming. Additionally, the farm will launch an exclusive apprenticeship program for high school students to learn the tools necessary for operating a business as it relates to food and farming, training that is otherwise unavailable in their rural landscape. This youth engagement is intended to make a true difference in the community, the future of our food system, and regenerative farming.
