Now more than ever before, it is so important to support our local farmers and ranchers. Below are some ideas for how you can help:
Jodar Farms’ online store is a convenient way to purchase your eggs, pork, and lamb with weekly pickups in Fort Collins, Wellington, Boulder, Longmont, and Denver. Summer CSA shares are also still available! This program helps fund the season early and support the farm through the current crisis. Half and whole hog orders are also available for May and June, with limited availability.
NATIVE HILL FARM
Secure your summer CSA share from Native Hill today! The farm is full steam ahead and excited to be growing fresh, nutrient-dense food for our community. Read more about their commitment to health and safety here.
Missing the farmers market and looking to support multiple local farmers and vendors at once? Check out the new eFarmers.org market featuring farm bundles full of local food and produce! Deliveries are on Sunday in the Front Range and Larimer County.
Don’t forget to support the restaurants and businesses that support our farmers! This is a very challenging time for the service industry, so please considering buying a gift card to use in the future. A little like a CSA for restaurants! Many of you know and love The Regional, who is an amazing supporter of local food. Click here to purchase a gift card from their website. Two-for-one idea: Jodar Farms’ eggs are carried at local favorites like Little On Mountain, Little Bird Bakeshop, and Pig & Plow. Get your pastries, lunch, or dinner and a dozen eggs all in one-stop (or delivery, in some cases!)
Most U.S. farmland will change hands in the next 20 years. Food farms are losing ground. We talk a lot about local food. Where will we grow it?
