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.

The crew would like to give you a tour of all the fruits of her labor and we could not do it without your continued support. Thanks!
There have been some awful nice sunrises...
 Some celery will make it into CSA boxes soon...
 A lovely flower bed on south side of the walipini
 An herb bed on the south side of the Wala-pini!
 Catherine at the goat stanchion milking away
 Mustards, Arugula, lettuce, and carrots germinating under row cover on left
 Late season onions still in the ground
Garlic was grown in the forefront and there are a few more taters to dig up near the dome
What's in the dome? Tons of cabbages!
 Broccoli in sunrise light
 Cabbage interspersed with lettuce
 Fig tree has been bearing well this year
 Bay tree overtowering the rosemary bush
 We just moved indoors recently, planting broccoli interspersed with lettuce (some direct seeded and some transplanted)
 This field has kohlrabi, mustards, swiss chard, kale, carrots, asian greens, and arugula
 A life blood on the farm, the compost pile! Reduce, reuse, recycle
 Onions curing in the soon to be filled high tunnel
 Cucumbers still producing and cantaloupes on the left make for a lovely fragrance in Polaris, our northern high tunnel
 Winter Squash on the left and right with hot peppers sandwiched in the middle!
 400 or so tomato plants (cherries on the right; heirlooms on the left) bearing a mass amount of fruit these days, trying to beat the cold nights
 Tomato bird's eye view, carrots planted on both sides of each row!
 The 150' long walipini (2 rows of tomatoes in the middle)
 A row of sweet peppers against the 20' buried northern wall of the walipini
 Okra loves the midday sauna heat of the walipini!
 Goofy Rocky and pensive Zen, what bothers her so?!
 The  new winter goat abode in the 'Boneyard'
 Once the tire is PUMPED UP and the fields are harvested, this contraption will be our mobile chicken home, moving to and fro around the farm, letting the chickens gorge on the green and bugs! We use a solar electric fence to keep them confined.
Picked up some 2-3 month old chicks for future egg production
