Our Farmers

Local farmers are the foundation of a sustainable, healthy, prosperous food system where fresh food is always on your table.

ALL of the farmers we partner with:

  • use organic, sustainable, and regenerative farming practices

  • do not use harmful pesticides or GMOs

  • ensure our food and soil is healthy and vibrant today and for years to come

  • value their local community and care deeply about their neighbors and customers

We visit every farmer we work with and have the utmost confidence and trust in the quality of food they grow. These farmers are hard-working, passionate stewards of the land and we LOVE supporting them. All of our farmers are in Colorado and we are proud Colorado Proud members!
