Welcome to a new food altitude. Here in the High Plains near the Rocky Mountains, farming on any scale is a challenge, farming organically even more so. We battle high winds, spring snow storms, extreme temperature fluctuations and hail storms that destroy in seconds. We also battle an arid climate, rodents and predators. To combat all that we use intensive grazing, composted manure, live trapping, motion sensors, mercury lights, supplements that feed the animals and the soil, pasture seeding for drought management and forage renewal.
We are firmly committed to the ideal that everyone should have access to affordable, healthy food grown as naturally as possible.
If your goal for yourself and your family is wanting to take back control of your food sources you have come to the right place. We encourage organic and local produce, dairy, eggs and meat whenever possible. Can you make a list of every food item that is produced with a 100 mile radius of your home? Start cooking local meals one night a week, then for one week, then for one month. It is definately a challenge but it can be done. By doing so you have helped your local economy, your environment and your small family farmer. What better way to build a sustainable community?
