Our good friend Tim started a farm last year in nearby Longmont, Colorado with his homeslice. They call it Lost World Farms. Along with his partner, Stephen, they grow some fine vegetables grown in the organic fashion. The Lost World folks are still accepting a few more people for their vegetable shares. Email them at the above contact and let em know you want in. And if you’re too late to get in on the share, volunteer at the farm one day and you’ll probably get the paid in green (you can eat) and feel the cool satisfaction that you helped two fellers making it happen in a field that was just that – a field. And now it’s thriving with life.
The pickups for the share are in Boulder and last year were very ample supplies of great veggies. You can actually taste what a carrot is supposed to taste like and the lettuce makes for amazing salads. My favorite is the Trout Back Lettuce that they grow. And the purple carrots. Hell, they even got me to reconsider the radish in some salads. Make sure and go to their website Lost World Farms – The updates and photos are great. –Brian
A radish grown at Lost World certainly worth reconsidering.
