Local Food Resource Guide

The COVID-19 pandemic is helping us remember that now more than ever, secure local food systems are imperative. Farm and ranchland protection, the work of Palmer Land Trust, is a critical piece of the food security puzzle.  

From now through the fall, from seed to harvest, local farmers and ranchers throughout southern Colorado are working seven days a week to provide you with nourishing and delicious food. We are fortunate to live here and have access to some of the best food grown in the country.

Despite the uncertainty in our lives right now, there can be joy too, in the rediscovery of what matters most: health, family, community, connection, local food, and you. Below is a list of some of our region’s locally owned and operated agriculture operations that continue to sustain our communities - all day, every day. Some have shipping and delivery options now and others will open this summer when the harvest season gets underway. We encourage you to connect with your local farmer and rancher and build important relationships between your family and the producers who grow your local food.
