Austin Family Farm was founded in Tennessee in 1960 by Glenn and Tony Austin. They moved to Colorado in 1970 and presently own 26 acres near the foot of Mt. Lamborn in the West Elk Mt. Range of Colorado. Both have been farming for nearly 50 years and some of their children and grandchildren work next to them year-round. Glenn is a 7th-generation farmer and committed to providing safe, high quality food while maintaining responsible stewardship of the land. They are passionate about sustainable agriculture and are often asked to speak and give tours of their beautiful farm.
Austin Family Farm distributes its fruits and vegetables to stores on the Front Range (Colorado Springs & Denver), Vail Valley (Vail, Breckenridge, Frisco, Eagle and Gypsum), the Roaring Fork Valley (Glenwood Springs, Carbondale, & Basalt), Telluride, Crested Bute, Norwood, Salida, Leadville and Buena Vista...to name a few!
Tony and Glenn launched their CSA program in 2003 to encourage a more direct relationship between themselves and consumers concerned with eating fresh, all-natural, locally grown produce. The Austin family tradition of home-grown products increased in 2008 with the addition of honey, raised by three of the Austin grandchildren. Brothers Clay and Eric Carney joined forces with cousin William Austin as partners in a business where they could demonstrate their own passion for the farming industry.
Tony and Glenn welcome you to sample their Colorado-grown produce or just drop in for a visit.

I have had the pleasure of eating a wide variety of fruits from this farm and they are downright the best I have had to date. Besides, they are honest, caring folks who run a farm you can trust. If they sell it, you can trust it.

Austin Family Farm produces the BEST fruits and vegetables I've ever eaten. Although I have not visited their farm, I certainly taste the results of their hard work and natural farming practices in the produce they deliver, and I feel blessed to be one of their customers.... [more]
