Many thanks to Rachel Rice from neighborsgo by Dallas Morning News for this wonderful article, sharing the voices of some of the recipients of the donated food. Thank you for partnering with us to continue changing communities through real food!
Many thanks to Jana Pruet for the wonderful write-up on Urban Acres in the recent issue of Neighbors Go! We were also in the print edition on January 13th.

If you came to our Slow Food $5 Challenge Lunch, then you most likely tried this amazing ice cream, handmade by Penelope Ryholt. In all her ice cream, Penelope uses Texas Daily Harvest milk – the local, organic, non-homogenized, low-pasteurized milk we sell at Urban Acres. Penelope even got to visit Texas Daily Harvest to see the farm and meet the farmers for herself!
The Pearl Brand flavors we currently have:
- Tahitian Vanilla
- Earl Grey
- Mint Chip
- Strawberry Lavender Sorbet
You can wipe the drool off your chin now.
