Skarsgard Farms Growers Collective
SKARSGARD FARMS • Albuquerque, NM
Skarsgard Farms broke ground in 2003 on the Los Poblanos Ranch in the Village of Los Ranchos. Now we cultivate 40 acres and produce a wide variety of certified Organic produce ranging from greens and peppers to tomatoes and melons. Our farm is home to over 2 acres of passive solar greenhouses that allow us to grow/harvest 12 months a year. In 2011 we began raising pigs to have the best natural pork available to our CSA members.
EXCELSIOR ORCHARD • Paonia, CO
Excelsior Orchard is located in the North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River. Paul and Elane took over the 120 acre certified Organic orchard in 2003. Today, along with trying to keep bears out of their trees, they produce apples, pears, cherries, apricots, plums, nectarines, and peaches for the CSA. Along with some of the best apple cider you will ever taste.
ROUSSEAU FARM • Tolleson, AZ
Rousseau Farm has been cultivated in the family since 1892. Originally growing only hay and grains, in 1986 Will Rousseau ran a trial growing carrots. And ever since they have diversified in many vegetable varieties and now supply a large portion of the winter produce needs for our CSA membership.
PATAGONIA ORCHARDS • Rio Rico, AZ
Patagonia Orchards was founded in 1988 by Philip Ostrom and Sherry Luna. From their origins as small organic growers in Northern Arizona, Sherry and Philip moved into organic distribution to support other Arizona based organic growers and the growing organic market place. Since its inception, Patagonia Orchards has closely partnered with exceptional organic growers and now provide the CSA with citrus, cherry tomatoes, and avocados, among other great products from the Sonora desert.
TUCSON VILLAGE FARM • Tucson, AZ
Tucson Village Farm is a working urban farm built by and for the youth of the community. It is designed to reconnect young people with a healthy food system, teach them how to grow and prepare fresh food, and empower them to make healthy life choices. To do this, Tucson Village Farm offers year-round, hands-on, instructional programs. The farm serves as a safe urban location where youth can come to be outdoors and engage in physical activity while contributing to and participating in local food production, preparation, and consumption.
WHITE MOUNTAIN FARM • Mosca, CO
White Mountain Farm is located in an ancient lake bed called the San Luis Valley. It lies between the San Juan and Sangre de Cristo Mountains of the Southern Colorado Rocky Mountains, at an elevation of about 7600 feet. The farm has been in the family since the 1930s. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, the main crops were organically grown wheat, alfalfa, and sheep. In 1984 we started experimenting with quinoa. In 1987, White Mountain Farm was incorporated and started growing certified organically grown quinoa and potatoes.
