Located at the base of Buckhorn Mountain at 6700' elevation, Buckhorn Gardens is a small, organic vegetable farm 13mi. south of Montrose, Colorado. Our farm is an active part of a 12,000 acre ranch; however, we only manage 3 acres with intensive vegetable gardening.

We always have so much fun when the school groups come out! Last Friday we had the Ridgway 4th and 5th graders. This was their second time on the farm. Last fall they came out to dig potatoes and pull weeds. Last Friday they came out again and helped us plant potatoes, shallots, onion sets and of course helped us pull more weeds. Man, did it show that they were experienced. Everyone walked in the paths and not in the beds. Planting went smoothly and everyone seemed as they had been pulling weeds for a long time. Favorite activities as always were feeding the chickens and finding left over veggies from the year before! Thank you Ridgway 4th and 5th. We are looking forward to your next visit.
