This is an annual May/June sale

Our goal iss to promote agricultural activities in the Denver metropolitan area for a variety of reasons.  First, for sustainability, i.e. renewing and preserving our energy and resources.  Second, for growing and raising our own quality food and getting in touch with food sources.  Third, for energy conservation.  Fourth, for fun.  Growing vegetables is fun.  Raising food-producing animals is fun.  Fifth, because a chicken living in your backyard and playing with a child is probably living a happier life than a chicken living on a factory farm.

We are not a big company, and we are not part of the industrial-agricultural complex.

Urban homesteading classes/Agriculture education

Classes on raising backyard chickens, dairy and fiber goats, vegetable gardening, canning.  

 

Local Farmers' Market - Now hoping to re-open at a date to be announced!

 

Local Fibers/crafts/spinning and knitting

We plan to offer for sale local fibers: wool from sheep, alpaca, llama, goat and rabbit.  We seek donations of old spinning wheels or parts of spinning wheels that we can refurbish.
