Trisha Bates

Urban American Farmer & Field Guide Fest

Trisha Bates is the founder of Urban American Farmer, based in Austin, TX with the mission to cultivate passionate participants in our local food system. Trisha grew up in the rich midwest soil, bottle-feeding lambs and digging in the garden. After formally studying Urban Planning and a decade working in and on restaurants, Trisha now builds networks between city and country, farmer and chef, human and land. She is an advocate for every piece of our local food community, and invites you to join her on this journey. Trisha co-founded Field Guide Festival in 2021, a food system festival in Austin, TX, expanding the farm to table movement into an interactive community experience.
