This Community is Re-forming
The content on our website and on Facebook is the most up to date. We do not have staff to constantly up date the IC site. We appreciate your understanding.
Restoring our food, our earth, ourselves.
Established in 1974, the farm’s founder has years of experience growing food and community. White Buffalo Farm is evolving with the times. We are ready to engage wonderful new trends in organics, slow food, sustainability, slow money and relocalization.
If you are would like to explore living on the farm, please consider coming to the farm as an intern, apprentice or in a “staff” position. For 2014, we seek a kitchen manager, an artisan cook, a vegetable farmer and a CSA coordinator. We also need a part time administrative assistant/bookkeeper.
The farm is home to thousands of fruit trees, several acres of vegetables and three high tunnel greenhouses. We grow cherries, European and Asian plum, peaches, d’Anjou and Asian pears, and apples. We grow tomatoes, squash, greens and a wide variety of other herbs and vegetables for our CSA. We also raise laying hens, guinea hens, turkeys and peacocks. WBF sells wholesale to the Front Range, direct at Farmers Markets and thru our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
Our core values are strengthening organic family farms, growing food for others, eating holistically and locally, placing goodness before money, faith in Spirit/God/Universe, being kind to the earth and ourselves, living in gratitude, being service-oriented, honoring creativity and art, honoring equity, demonstrating tolerance.
Growing food is healing, rewarding and feels great! It’s a great time to become part of White Buffalo Farm!
