Rude Becky's Flower Farm is a small non-certified organic farm specializing in vegetable and flower production for local markets, and in educating future growers through our apprenticeship/internship program (see below). We firmly believe in the local consumption of local production, as well as organic methods in all areas of cultivation, harvest and processing.
We are located in the Four Corners region on the Colorado Plateau, at an altitude of 7,000 feet. We enjoy beautiful views of the north wall of Mesa Verde. The growing season techinically lasts only 120 days, but with creative use of cold frame greenhouses and row covers we are able to maximize our harvest season to six months.
We are currently involved in the planning process for 2009, which marks our eighth year of production and the third year of our CSA program. You may also find us at one or more of the local farmers markets (Dolores, Cortez, Telluride) if all goes according to plan!
At the moment we are busy poring over seed catalogs and notes from last year's harvest. As we plot and scheme for sowing and planting of potatoes, tomatoes, leeks, kale, and cilantro, to name a few, we are sill lucky enough to find a few more carrots and spinach leaves buried in the snow. The elk and deer tracks lead right to them!
This year we are seeking one or two long term interns/apprentices. The season for interns begins in April or May and ends at the end of October. We also welcome short-term interns throughout the growing season for a minimum one week stay. Areas of interest for interns include greenhouse production, transplanting, irrigation, weeding, plant identification, harvesting, CSA management, and more. Please contact Melissa through this website for more information.
