As summer warms up, so do orders at New Roots Farm in Cañon City. This local favorite farm is a delight to visit, as orders can be placed online and picked up on Thursdays. You can even say 'hello' to their flock of eccentric guineafowl when you're there. Located just a few miles from downtown, the farm occupies 5 acres and produces a wealth of produce: carrots, radishes, varieties of kale and pak choy. All of it is organic and lovingly grown by Sarah Hamilton and her parents, Susan and Patrick. They pay special attention to soil, water, and biodiversity practices, and their dedication to the land is obvious.
