We are feeling pretty darn proud to bring a load of veggies to the first market of the season tomorrow. When we started our lease in March, we set our minds to making a living from the land right off the bat. So much has happened between then and now to make that a possibility. It has been fun setting down some roots and building our farm dream (and of course a whole lotta work). Now we have some produce to show for it!
We will see you tomorrow farmers market tribe! Hope your ready for produce from Two Roots 2.0!
PS-sales pitch- We have a farmers market membership that gets you 10% off every time (plus you don’t have to remember your wallet cause you pay in advance). It’s a wonderful help to us farmers, and it’s a nice little savings for our best customers! Sign up at the market.
Hey guys! Meet Sara, she’s going to be helping us out this summer (and lord knows we need it 😅). She’s already proven to be able to go with the flow, jump large trenches, work long hours, cook delicious lunches, and be the sunscreen queen. So glad to have her around! Let’s grow some food @sara_tymcz !
Buckle up maters... your out in the real world now. 🍅
As a farmer in Colorado, sometimes it feels like all we do is manage water. This spring has been full of not enough water, then too much water, water in the wrong place, too fast, too slow, this ditch is too deep, this ditch is too shallow... and this guy has been rolling with the punches and making it happen— with a smile to boot. We now manage about 15 acres of pasture in addition to the veggie plots, and there is a lot to learn! 👨🌾 @farmerlabar

As we geared up to farm for our first year on this property, we made the rule we can’t plant until we have water.... Oops🤦♀️. This week we hope to have electricity to the well pump and irrigation water in the ditch, but until then we have been hauling water. While I’ll admit getting water from a fire hydrant is pretty sweet, having water flow straight to your plants is even sweeter. Thanks to all the human ingenuity that led to us being able to power machines with the flip of a button and have water flow from the turn of a tap. What a world! #nomoreplantingtillwater #eagerbeavers #basics #holdintherelittleguys
Our little tractors best new trick? Compost box!
As we work towards getting electricity installed, this is our morning and evening dance. Without the fans or vents running, our prop house is reaching a solid 140 degrees on these sunny days but the plants aren’t quite ready to face cold nights outside. So in and out they go. I just wish we actually moved this fast 😅

Farmer Jack helped pave the way for small farms like ours to thrive in the Roaring Fork Valley. He hustled in the name of local food and healthy land. We are so grateful for Jack Reed, and sad to hear of his passing. We will plant some extra seeds this week in your name :). Thanks for making your mark on our corner of the world, Jack.
Sending our love and thoughts to his friends and family!
