  • Laura Quaranta and David Thomas | Rough and Ready Farm | Boulder County

    Our farming practices are ecological and efficient: Woman owned, small scale operation coexisting in a thriving wildlife corridor. We never EVER spray any chemicals, even if they are approved organic. Drip irrigation used farm wide to conserve water. Cover crops such as Rye, Oats, Peas, Hairy Vetch, Triticale are used to build soil, along with regenerative practices such as crimping. Started production on leased land in 2020 and have since secured an additional parcel doubling the farm capacity.

  • Kena and Mark Guttridge | Ollin Farms | Boulder County

    The goal of our family farm is to produce top quality farm products while continuing to increase the diversity and health of ecosystems around us. Our focus at Ollin Farms has always been to produce the most nutritious and flavorful produce possible. All of our produce is grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides- not even the organic approved ones. Ultimately, it is the soil that will determine the health of everything that grows out of it, including the farm and the community.

"The farm is a place for community. Happy to have you all out to the farm for a tour, farm dinner, concert, or gathering. It’s important for us all to be connected with the source of our food!"

  • Frank Silva | All Natural Homestead Beef | Weld County

    Waves of Grain is proud to offer the 100% grass-fed beef from La Salle, Colorado. Frank started his herd of Scottish Highland cows in 1993, now numbering over 300.  As a third generation rancher, he credits his parents and grandparents for his knowledge and passion for raising animals. His herd does not get corn, soy or GMO’s. The herd moves to multiple farms at varied elevations, to access fresh grasses as conditions change throughout the year. He supplements grazing with a local non-gmo alfalfa and a mineral mix of unprocessed sea salt and volcanic ash.
