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.

Who: You and the Buckhorn Crew!
What: Help us plant 13 varieties of potatoes (~8,000 plants) and eat our pet pig, Oreo, Hawaiin Luau Style
When: Saturday, May 14th at 9am
Where: Buckhorn Gardens
What to Bring: Sunscreen, water, typical Spring weather Colorado clothing, gloves if you need them, hat, a dish for the potluck, friends and family, and a tuperware dish to take home some pork 

Have you ever eaten a whole pig cooked in the ground, Imu (Hawaiin earth oven), Hawaiin Luau style? We would like to share the farm bounty with our community (pig and spring veggies), let you see where all the magic happens, meet other CSA members, plant potatoes like crazy, meet the farm animals (chickens, pigs, goats, a cat and a dog), and mingle with the Buckhorn crew you will be seeing at the farmers markets and who do all the hard work behind the scenes. Ryan from Yurtstead Farm/Roundhouse Meats has offered to man the pit for pork perfection. There will be tons of pork for your take-out boxes and we will have pork for sale from our processed pig as well! Also for sale are eggs, veggies (salad mix, spinach, kale, heads of lettuce), and tomato starts.

Now, the other half of the equation: we have a new field to plant in that is ready for all the rainbow varieties of potatoes we have for your baskets this season. Many hands make light work in organic farming and we would love to see all of you at the farm, our office, with its, quite nice mountain views!
