For the 2023 season, we are looking for someone excited about “digging” in and helping on the market garden farm, here in the beautiful Colorado Rockies. We have several options for pay/trade work, possible tiny house or van parking for the season. For more info, contact Terrie firstname.lastname@example.org
For the past 16 years, on a 10 acre USDA certified organic farm and garden, on a mesa in western Colorado, we have been continuously working on building a sustainable ecosystem that provides food, beauty and medicine for future generations.
We offer several subsription options to purchase our fresh vegetables. during the season. Just go to our SHOP button on the website or on our Facebook site. We also grow certified organic vegetable, herb, flower, medicinal, biodynamic and permaculture plants for wholesale and retail sales and plant our market and home gardens with these same plants. Our plants are started in our subterranean heated and cooled greenhouse, lovingly put together by my husband, Ace.
Slowly, we have been introducing grapevines, fruit trees, and wildlife habitat, as well as adding to the medicinal garden. Over the past 8 years we have undergone a major project putting in an underground water main for our irrigation system and installing a system that cuts our water waste while delivering water when and where it is needed to establish a canopy of trees, shrubs and vines which will become our “water bank”, holding moisture in their roots, branches, leaves and cooling the ground to minimize water loss by evaporation. With the continued drought conditions, we have also added several large water storage tanks and have the irrigation system on a timer.
In 2022, we produced over 400 lbs of tomatoes and over 300 lbs. of cucumbers in our second season in the high tunnel! For 2023, we are adding another high tunnel and selling our bedding plants right here on the farm.
The BCS walk-behind tractor has been a game-changer. This year we plan to add low tunnels and hoops with row cover to our warm weather crops. Every year is a new experience filled with challenges and opportunities for growth (read-tears and laughter!). This year we share our victories and disappointments with you. We hope you enjoy our story!
