Divide Creek Farm is a family owned 200-acre solar powered farm 10 miles south of Silt, about a 35 minute drive west of Glenwood Springs. Our farm is powered by a large 25 kilowatt residential solar system selling excess power back to the grid. We have one acre of vegetable production with three 22' x 48' Rolling Thunder movable greenhouses, a seed starting greenhouse, a small orchard, pastured chicken layers and grass-fed cattle, silo root cellar, barrel sauna, tepee as well as a community outbuilding complete with a kitchen with a wash station and a walk-in cooler. We focus on direct consumer and restaurant sales including two weekly summer farmer's markets and local neighborhood customers. Using our 1960's Airstream trailer retro-fitted as a tow-behind cooler, we make quite an impression at the markets! With our movable high tunnels, we have fresh spinach & greens and sweet winter carrots available to sell to restaurants and at an indoor farmer's market through the winter months. My father, Eliot Coleman is one of the original small farm organic pioneers and I aspire to emulate our farm after his design and principles. Photos and more information about our farm can be found on our website. Our slogan is Real Farming, Real Food since we are focused on the positive methods of organic agriculture such as good soil fertility, composting, green manures, crop rotations, beneficial insects, nutritious quality produce, rewarding hard work and selling locally. We believe in the power of small farms nourishing local communities.
We can be found at the Basalt Sunday Market 10-2 June 18th through September 26th 2010 and the Glenwood Downtown Market 4-8 June 20th through September 28th 2010.
