We lease 22-acres from the Pitkin County Open Space and Trails Program—3 acres are used for food production and the other 19 acres are used for hay and livestock grazing. We practice biointensive growing with organic methods. Our mission is to grow the freshest, healthiest, and most delicious produce for the Roaring Fork Valley in a way that is improves the land and cares for the farmers. We are a young farm—entering our fifth season, so we are still developing our systems, practices, and sales outlets. We work hard in the growing season, in all the elements (wind, rain, cold, and heat) to get the job done. We also have a really good time and eat amazing food.
