Grant Family Farms Spring Tour | Wellington, Colorado
As we head into another weekend, I thought I would share our highlight of last weekend. Aside from Summer finally making its appearance, it was the weekend of the Grant Family Farms Spring Tour. Grant Family Farms is the local farm we receive produce and eggs from each week for close to six months out of the year.
Every spring they hold this family-centric event. It's a great opportunity to see a large-scale organic farm up close, and to meet people who share your passion for whole food and supporting local farmers.
It was a gorgeous day and while my husband and brother enjoyed some bluegrass, I took in a presention by the Colorado State University Extension on how to Preserve the Harvest. My boys had their share of fun herding worms, making mud seed balls, being spat on by a llama and hay bale jumping.
There were some great vendors I visited with and that I must mention:
- Criterion Fine Stringed Instrument and Repair
- Fiona's All Natural Granola and Bars
- Copoco's Honey
- Noosa Yogurt
- MM Local
- Whole Foods Market
And of course great music:
If you live in Northern Colorado or Southern Wyoming, I hope to see you next year! If you live elsewhere, consider joining a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm. Here is a site that will help you locate a farm near you. Our weekly delivery starts next week, can't wait!
