Behind the Oak Farm, is a multi-generational, family-owned farm that sits just outside of San Antonio, TX. The Greaves family has maintained Behind the Oak since the 70’s, and have made extensive efforts to change the way farming is done. If you find yourself in the small town of Schertz, you may run into Samantha Platt and her husband, Zachary, along with their 4 children, who will help show you how much they care about their animals.
The Platt’s focus on giving each creature a healthy, happy life, and building a connection with their land and their animals. This is especially important as the animals are raised with love, care, and the best that the family can provide, because in return, these animals provide food and nourishment to the communities around them. The Platt’s show each creature they raise with love, they also give back to the earth by practicing regenerative agriculture.
Behind the Oak welcomes visitors to stop by and check out their farm! They have a weekly farm stand at the front of the farm on Saturdays from 9-1. Add a Whole Chicken, Breast, Leg Quarters, or Ground Turkey to your weekly box! Occasionally their poultry will end up in the Pasture-Raised Meat Box, so check it out if you haven't already!
