Grant Family Farms
In the late 1960s, Lewis Grant sought out a plot of land in the Rocky Mountains foothills to grow his own vegetables and brought the wisdom he accrued during a career as a university professor and his son Andy to help with the humble undertaking. The duo took to tilling the land, and over the next few decades, Andy expanded his father’s plot to the 2,200 acres that currently make up the CSA-certified organic farm. Heading a farming community with more than 4,500 members, a dedicated staff of educators and farmers cultivate the farm’s pasture-raised livestock and more than 150 breeds of organic vegetables such as squash, herbs, and 34 varieties of corn and heirloom tomatoes. Every year, the staff gives visitors a hands-on education about the nitty gritty of farm operations and gives them the chance to defeat their cows in starting contests during a spring agricultural festival set against the mountain landscape.
