Here’s a little treat for #nationalagricultureday
Thank goodness for farmers like this one @harrisontopp
Hey everybody! The time has come for us to rally some support, and we can use your help! We are asking to build a small barn on our leased land (currently no buildings except this adorable historic schoolhouse) and the county is asking for public comment on the project. We would so appreciate your support for this essential infrastructure. Please visit the link in our profile if you’d like to comment. We are rooting for Option A 😉

OST is seeking input on a proposed agricultural structure at its Emma Open Space. Here potatoes grow on the open space, next to the historic Emma Schoolhouse. A new lessee intends to grow vegetables on the land. Go to pitkinOSTprojects.com for more information. #pitkinost #emmaopenspace
As we get rolling on our new property this year, we have been leaning on our fellow farmers and friends who are helping us get going, storing our stuff, loaning tools/start house space, and cheering us on. So grateful for you all! #farmily #ittakesavillage
Also, one side affect of basically living out of a storage unit and having your stuff spread across the valley is you misplace hand seeders and seed onions by hand 🙄
Step one: plow a drive way.
This is our blank canvas: no electricity, well, or buildings yet. Lots of projects ahead!

This has been a HUGE week for us. We officially signed a 10 year lease with @pitkinost at Emma Open Space 🤗. The same day we packed up our stuff and moved into a temporary home (my parents’ cough cough) while we look for housing near the new farm. We can’t wait to begin this new chapter... for real the anxiety is killing us! We have been eyeing this property and dreaming up farm plans for over two years now. Now the work begins realizing those dreams!-- Things I will miss from Missouri Heights include this view. Things I won’t miss?... These deer.

I just had a great few days at our state capital (Denver, Co) with @rmfunion and @youngfarmers. I spent time with some of my state representatives and a heap of farmers. When these organizations host, I always come home inspired to engage... not just in the political process but in life: my community, family, fellow farmers, and the land. Coming together to build a future for farmers/food— brick by brick — is not always graceful or fast, but is certainly encouraging. #rmfu #nyfc #legislativedrivein

8” fresh pow at our hometown ⛰@sunlightmountainresort feels soooooooo good. Such a win win- powder to shred now and water to irrigate this summer. #waterislife #powderisfun
The different shades of 2017 on our little gardens. We’ve been looking back on our photos throughout the year and man it’s a been a hell of a year. Thanks to all who made 2017 our best year yet. Chefs, farmers, volunteers, market visitors, CSA members, friends, and family —-we love you. 2018 is shaping up to be a wild ride.
