Colorado Farmers


Recommended Posts

With Colorado having such great farmers, I was wondering whats the best way to get in contact with these farms?

Where are all the Farmer's Markets around the Denver/Boulder area?

Joe,

When I was a produce buyer for a national natural food purveyor, I had a lot of killer farmers in Colorado. I was amazed at the variety, quantity and quality of what they produced at altitude and in a relatively short growing season.

I'll parse through my business carda and faulty memory and PM you come contacts.

Looking forward to your help Judy!

Another good general resource is the Local Harvest organization and website.

Here's the results of search for farms around Denver: click

Some of the farms participate in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) where you can get a box of produce each week after signing up with a farm.

edited to add: You can restrict the search to farmer's market's, CSA's, coops, etc. I've also heard of people in the Denver area finding sources for buying grass fed beef and organic pork from people who raise the animals.

It would be interesting to hear what you think of the scene after scouting things out a bit. I wonder if there are also local cheese producers?
