Tim Miller

Millberg Farm Certified Organic Grower

Tim Miller has been a certified organic grower for 31 years. He specializes in only heirlooms and water conservation. Using only small quantities of saved rainwater has enabled him to sustain a highly diversified small-scale farm. As a product of the community gardening system, he went from backyard to community gardens, being hired by Austin Community Gardens (where he worked for nine years). He’s gone from developing garden sites to owning a farm. Years of specialized growing techniques have enabled him to grow without ever pumping any aquifer water in 26 years.

Tim will be speaking at the Texas Fair.
