We began farming because we love to eat. We love everything about a good meal: the cooking, the satisfaction, the shared table with friends and family. We believe a good meal begins with fresh, high quality ingredients. Every crop we grow is something that we want to use in our personal kitchen. While some vegetables and varieties are stranger than others, we do not grow anything we wouldn't eat ourselves. We embrace the seasonal change on our plates, each season inspiring new recipes and cooking methods. We hope to pass this excitement on to you.
We currently grow about 30 different vegetables and herbs on our farm. We continue to push the envelope of what is possible in our climate at 7,000 ft elevation. We choose to focus on crops that grow well in our area--root vegetables and leafy greens. Though we don't have the longest season for growing crops like sweet potatoes and melons, we do have the ability to grow high quality greens throughout the heat of the summer because of our cooler temperatures. Many of our warm season crops (tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers) are grown under the protection of hoop houses for added warmth and weather protection. We are working with many heirloom varieties from Siberia and Russia to grow these crops outside as well.
