Slàinte (SLAHN-chə) Farm’s mission is to cultivate the Northern Colorado land to provide wholesome, local food to our community.
“Slàinte” comes from a Gaelic toast meaning “to your health.” This is exactly our mission on the farm: to grow vegetables, flowers, and herbs using only organic practices that are good not only for the health of the environment, land, and animals, but also for the community that we feed.
We focus on growing heirloom vegetables, culinary and medicinal herbs, as well as edible flowers. We are GMO free and abstain from using any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers in our practices. We are in the midst of becoming a certified organic farm, which we hope to obtain by the 2017 season. This will make our farm one of the first of its size in the area to have this certification.
Here at Slainte Farm, our main goal is to cultivate the land with the most care possible.
We currently have just under an acre of land planted. We use minimal till practices on raised 30″ beds in all our fields.
We grow using only organic practices, meaning no GMO’s and no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers touch our land.
We are consistently tending to the health of our soil, to make sure it supports strong, healthy plants.
If you have any questions about how we grow here on Slainte Farm, please contact us or come out for a farm tour.
