Sweet Pea Farmers That Help Bring Delicious Food From Farm to Table
Wild Idea Bison
Our land and animal management practices are as close to nature’s intentions as possible. By caring for the land and giving the buffalo room to roam, the prairie is nurtured back to health. Grasses, forbs, and flowers flourish, providing a sustainable eco-system for all creatures great and small. Dan’s vision of large sweeping landscapes with roaming buffalo herds continues to grow.
Yampa Valley Farms.
We are a family run farm in Steamboat Springs, Colorado raising grass-fed and finished Scottish Highland beef and pastured heritage pork. All our animals are raised outdoors, free from stress, antibiotics or added hormones, on nutritious, natural diets. At Yampa Valley Farms we believe it’s important to ‘know what you eat’!
Ugly Goat Dairy.
Established in 2008, we are a small locally-owned and operated farm located 45 minutes north-east of downtown Denver. We specialize in goat and cow milk, and dairy products (artisan cheeses, yogurt, butter, etc.).
Quality healthful produce is our number one priority. In response to health concerns, Honeyacre healthy produce is achieved naturally — we do not use any pesticide or chemical sprays on our plants or produce. In addition, our tomatoes are not harvested until they reach the peak of flavor and color. The green stem is
left on as an indication of the freshness. You can see and taste the difference. Don’t be fooled by others, ours is truly a vined ripened tomato.
Our friend “Teddy Bear” Bill Devries has been farming in Grand Junction for over 30 years. He provides us with winter squash, zucchini, yellow squash, patty pan squash, sweet corn, green beans, tomatoes, okra, watermelon, and cantaloupe.
