Our Farmers

Our local farmers use sustainable and organic growing practices that are good for our soil, our land, and our bodies. 

Local farmers are vital to sustainable, healthy, prosperous food systems where fresh food is always on your table. All the farmers we work with are located in Colorado, and many of them are along the Front Range and within Jefferson County! 

ALL of the farmers we partner with:

  • use organic, sustainable, and regenerative farming practices

  • do not use any harmful pesticides or GMOs

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

We personally visit every farm we work with and have the utmost confidence and trust in the quality of food they grow. These farmers are hard-working and passionate community members, and we LOVE supporting them! Not every farmer we work with is certified organic because some are too small for certification to be feasible, but they all use organic and sustainable growing practices. Because all of our farmers are local to Colorado, we are proud Colorado Proud members!
