Zachary and Samantha Platt and along with our families, steward the land and animals of Behind the Oaks Farm. Family owned since the 1970’s, we are located in Schertz, Texas, right outside of San Antonio. Samantha is the third generation of Greaves to operate the farm, and Zack married into the farm life over 10 years ago. When visiting the farm or markets, you will be able to meet us and our 4 kids, 2 boys and 2 girls. We enjoy visitors at the farm so that they too can make a connection with the land and animals. We want to bring back the connection between people and their food, knowing that these animals are raised with love, care, and the best that we can provide them because in return, they will nourish us.
As the next generation on the farm, we are choosing to change things up a bit for the sake of their family and the community around us, practicing regenerative agriculture as a way to give back to the land and animals that we love. When praying about taking over the farm, we wanted it to be something more; it is stewardship of what God has gifted us, and it’s about the people, the land and animals creating a healthy, strong community.
We focus our efforts on raising grass-fed beef, pasture-raised chickens and eggs, and in growing and expanding our own apiary to provide the surrounding areas with local honey.
We are grateful for your interest and support and we are appreciative for your trust in our family and our products.
For His Glory, Zachary Platt and Family, Behind the Oaks Farm
