About Ross Creek Organic Farm

Bruce Ford

Founder of Ross Creek Organic Farm

Bruce lives with his family on a 16 acre organic farm near Ellinger, Texas where he practices with different compost designs, microbial brewing with compost and soil microbe philosophy, beekeeping, rainwater catchment, radio communication, growing native plants, herbs and medicinal plants by propagation from seeds and cuttings. He is a licensed Texas nursery grower with a homemade greenhouse.

Bruce is passionate about raising honey bees and getting others involved in beekeeping. He like to develop new solutions for his own bee colonies, such as hive top feeder or treatment and stimulant mix, and when they work, he shares them with his beekeepers’ community. Bruce is active in several local beekeepers associations. He establishes and maintains honey bee yards and mentors individuals in the fine art of beekeeping in central Texas.

Bruce is a leader in the grassroots homestead movement in central Texas and mentors families on food security. His philosophy is collaborating and lifting up all stakeholders in the room. Thousands of like-mined people are moving to central Texas and building new communities. He embraces this movement by sharing skillsets, hosting workshops and promoting the farming community movement here in central Texas.

As a native Texan, Bruce is passionate about bird, butterfly and wildlife habitat development. He consults and mentors Texans on agricultural exemption implementation with honey bees and wildlife habitat management planning. His skillsets include permaculture homestead design planning, “Back to Eden” garden philosophy, greenhouse construction, organic gardening and radio communication. Bruce is an active leader in the central Texas food security movement.
