Elliott Bass is a beginning farmer running his beef cattle operation on 100 acres outside of San Antonio, Texas. He also operates the Alamo Ranch Farmers Market currently funded by a USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program grant. Determined to bring the farmers market concept into the 21st century, he eschews a physical location and offers home delivery through an online website. Elliott works with the Alliance for Rural Impact to offer training programs for beginning farmers in Texas focused on financial sustainability. Elliott’s background in entrepreneurship blends well with his commitment to expand access and availability of local foods across Texas. Prior to moving to Texas, Elliott has worked in the telecommunications industry, operated a cleaning franchise, real estate investment, and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
