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 are all ready for Spring here at Buckhorn. The cows are calving, chickens brooding, goats are kidding, tomatoes are germinating, and the crew at Buckhorn patiently waiting for the weather to show signs of Spring. Only three weeks away from finishing a successful winter CSA, plans are being made for early spring. We have turned over 'mars' (high tunnel) into cover crop, while experimenting with different kinds of tillage.

The other two high tunnels, Scorpio and Polaris, are still in harvest.

Farmers Market committees are currently working out their schedules, which we will be posting very shortly. We still have openings for the summer CSA! If you are interested please email us for the application. It is going to be a fun and exciting year!
