One of the things that the spring covid restrictions made us reflect upon is “where does food come from, if not the grocery store?”
Great news, friends, it comes from the ground.
Carbondale is known for its potatoes! Corn, garlic, squash, and veggies grow here! Local beef is raised! There are pigs and goats and game galore.
Further west, the food scene in Palisade is incredible. Lavender, honey, wine, peaches, and other orchard harvest fill out the farmer’s markets.
Osage Gardens in New Castle grows and sells food.
New Castle Gardens has great flowers in the summer as well as starter vegetables, soils, and gardening gear.
Skips Farm to Market has a Basalt and a Silt location.
Rock Bottom Ranch has a local harvest dinner.
Two Roots Farm produces food for local restaurants.
There’s always having a garden yourself. I even know a professional gardener who will manage your home garden for you!
