Know Where Your Food Comes From
The western slope of Colorado has a long tradition of passionate farmers.
For over a century the North Fork Valley has been home to an abundance of homesteads, farms, and orchards. In the early 1900s, prized Paonia fruit made its way all over the country via train packed in ice from the snowcaps. Today a culture of self-reliance, sustainability, and creativity continues in the valley. From cheese and grass-fed beef to organic peaches, biodynamically grown vegetables to honey – they all hale from this tiny, sparsely populated Colorado valley.
The farms that work with Vicki’s Fresh Food Movement are diverse in size, food, and personality, but they all have one thing in common: they grow some of the best food around.
All our produce is sourced from local farms that use sustainable practices. They do not use sprays or pesticides on their crops. All meat is pasture raised without the use of hormones or antibiotics. Some farms are certified organic by the USDA, whilst others use organic practices without being certified.
