Food Safety

Our farm is rooted in a passion for good, clean food and we've developed a comprehensive Food Safety Plan to ensure our fresh produce meets or exceeds the highest standards for safety and quality.

  • We are in full compliance with the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, and our farmers have earned certifications from the Produce Safety Alliance and Colorado State University Extension.

 

  • We follow Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) & Good Handling Practices (GHP), and are actively working towards a third-party audit and certification in 2020.

 

  • Water Safety- We irrigate our crops with municipal tap water, virtually eliminating the risk of E. Coli from agricultural surface water (the reason behind so many recent lettuce recalls).

 

  • Compost and Soil Amendments- we exercise strict control over our agricultural inputs by using only certified clean compost and National Organic Program (NOP) compliant/OMRI-listed additives and amendments.

 

*** Unscheduled farm visits are currently suspended due to COVID-19.  To schedule a visit, please contact Co-Owner/Farmer Christin Mihon at (303) 880-4027. ***
