Colorado CSA Monroe Organic Farms 970-284-7941 http://monroefarm.com
Monroe Organic Farm is the oldest organic farm in Colorado. In 1936, our family established the Monroe homestead in Weld County, and we have been growing organic produce ever since! We see ourselves as caretakers of this land that we have come to know like a cherished family member.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) brings the farmer back into the community. The farmer and consumers unite to grow produce. The farmer learns the consumers' needs and desires. Consumers learn the realities of food production, such as the actual time of year produce is harvested in Colorado and how weather and insects can affect a harvest.
Benefits of supporting a CSA farm:
Eat exceptional, vine-ripened, freshly picked produce.
Help keep small farms in business.
Help preserve America's precious farmland.
Get surplus produce from bumper crops.
People in the community "join the farm" as non-working or working members. Members receive a percentage of produce; the percentage depends on the membership package selected by each member. Several convenient distribution centers are located throughout the Denver metro area and Front Range communities in Colorado.
Eat the best-tasting organic product this side of the Rockies!
Our farming philosophy emphasizes taste over size and appearance. We constantly try new and unique varieties, including heirlooms, to find the best tasting vegetables our farm can produce.
In 1993, we organized as a community-supported agriculture (CSA) project because we wanted to work closely with people who appreciate our farming philosophy.
As part of the farm diversity we have pastured raised pork, beef, and lamb. Members have the option to purchase eastern plains honey and western slope fruit produced by a local beekeeper and orchardist.
