Over the years that we have been growing our farm here is Colorado Springs, we are continually amazed at the number of people that show-up on our doorstep wanting to know how to reproduce what we have done.
At first we weren’t much help, we were still up to our eyeballs trying to figure it out ourselves. Today, we feel we have developed a model that given the right person or family, and a lot of hard work, you can build a small farm that would allow you to transition from a full time carrier to full time farming.
We have also found that if we were to try and educate every person, we would have little time to run our own farm. So with that in mind, we have decided the best way to serve this ever growing population is to add a small farm consulting service.
Here’s how we can help:
