Overview

Our 30 acre farm is located in Avondale, which is on the east side of the Rocky Mountains near Pueblo, Colorado. We farm here on the high plains because of the natural resources conducive to organic farming. Our soil is classified as "Prime, Irrigated Farm Land of National Importance". The soil type is a mineral-rich Rocky Ford silty clay loam. We have senior water rights from the Bessemer Ditch. Its water comes directly from the Pueblo Reservoir and thus does not have excessive chemical tail water. We grow certified organic garlic and open pollinated vegetable seeds for market growers and home gardeners. We select farmer friendly varieties for suitability to organic systems, drought hardiness, storage, and specialty markets. We also grow fresh produce for sale to local markets.
