The Forbes Family Farm

We love connecting people in our community with locally grown food. We sell our produce through a Community Supported Agriculture model where families purchase a membership share and receive a box of fresh produce every week throughout the growing season along with an option to add-on a pasture-raised meat share. We grow over 70 different crops ranging from root veggies and greens to classics like tomatoes and cucumbers. Each week from May through October members receive approximately 8-12 produce varieties. The early weeks of the CSA will feature a variety of greens (lettuce, kale, arugula, spinach), root crops (radishes, carrots, beets, turnips) and peas, Swiss Chard, bok choy, green onions, herbs and garlic scapes. These boxes will be a bit smaller as produce is just coming on here in our high-altitude setting. As we move into the summer, your share will begin to include crops such as green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, summer squash, garlic and strawberries. By the fall we will also be able to include winter squash, apples, plums, melons, onions, leeks, fennel and potatoes.

All of our animals are raised out in the sunshine, moving to fresh grass daily. They are never given antibiotics or growth hormones. Most of our animals are heritage breed stock and are allowed to exhibit all the natural traits of their species. We raise chicken, ducks, turkeys, pigs, cattle and yaks.

We also run a guesthouse and covered wagons through Airbnb that allows us to share a piece of farm life with those looking to disconnect from the hustle and bustle. As a remote property along the scenic Sheep Creek Geological Loop, this is the perfect place for star gazers, outdoor adventurers, garden enthusiasts, and anyone looking to spend time on a working farm.

We’re passionate about teaching people how to confidently cook farm to table meals at home, so provide a variety of online courses and resources teaching people how to stock their kitchen, acquire the best ingredients, build a seasonal menu concept, and enjoy the Farm to Table experience at home.

This is the best nursery in the valley. I have been shopping there since Alex opened his doors. It gets bigger and better every year. I’m so grateful to have this wonderful garden center just a mile from my home.
