The Kilt Farm Difference

We are on a mission to grow healthy soil, food and community.

You will not find Kilt Farm at the farmers markets but you will see us at fine restaurants and grocery stores around Boulder County. Join our CSA and bring our nutritious food to your own home.

Some people think that wearing a kilt in the field is enough to make us different from the rest of the farms in Boulder County. We agree…but that is just the start! Kilt Farm stands apart from the rest of Boulder County with our focus on soil and plant health. This focus helps us produce the best tasting, sweetest, most nutritious food around.

Soil is the most vibrant ecosystem that goes unnoticed. In just a tablespoon of soil there are billions of organisms. If all of these billions of organisms are vibrant and healthy, the relationship between the soil and the plant helps insure healthy plants. When our crops are regularly provided minerals and nutrients, we have almost no disease or pest pressure in the fields.

Kilt Farm uses compost tea to build the soil biology. Compost tea is a living soil supplement that is much like a probiotic supplement that we might take to boost our digestive health. This blend of compost, molasses, kelp and sea water provides the soil biology the foundation of good health. A vibrant and living soil supports vibrant nutritious plants. This virtuous cycle builds every day of the season to create healthy plants and healthier eaters.

Kilt Farm grows the healthiest food to ensure we have the healthiest community.

What We Grow

Our focus at Kilt Farm is growing the most delicious and nutritious varieties of veggies with a few unique items that may expand your veggie horizons. This year we are growing over 50 different vegetables and nearly 100 different varieties.

Why just have orange carrots when you can have yellow, red and purple? The same goes for the our melons with 9 different varieties that range from Orangeglo Watermelons to Prescot Fond Blanc Cantaloupes. We make sure that every week is a kaleidoscope of colors and flavors!

About Your Farmer

As soon as I was old enough to be more of a help than a hindrance I was out in the gardens with my Father and brothers. I had my hands dirty pulling weeds, hauling manure and helping in any way I could. It was wonderful being surrounded by the natural beauty of Florida, my childhood home. While those chores were not on the top of my fun list as a child, I developed a deep connection to the earth and what can grow with constant attention and hard work. Now many years later I have worked with big and small farms across Colorado in order to ensure that local food is available to local communities and now from that inspiration, I run Kilt Farm.

As an intern in the Farmer Cultivation Center in Niwot, Colorado it felt like I was receiving a Master’s Degree in farming where I started Kilt Farm in 2013. During the 2014 growing season I worked with Mark Guttridge at Ollin Farms in all aspects of the operation and felt blessed to learn so much from an amazing Farmer. Over the years since starting Kilt Farm I have learned so much. We have faced adversity, seen incredible abundance and grew the farm from ½ acre to now more than 30 acres.

I believe it is vitally important for us to consume healthy, nutrient dense foods in order to maintain our own health and wellbeing. While local food production provides food security in an ever complex and global food supply, we must take great strides to protect not only our access to food, but the land that provides so much for us. This year, we will be growing over 100 varieties of vegetables so you can eat an amazing seasonal diet that makes you feel great and may even stretch your culinary imagination.

Over the next ten years we plan to introduce additional facets to the farm so that I can grow or raise all of the food that a family will need. I look forward to having you to come out to the farm and see where the soil is rich, the vegetables are grown, the bees do their work and how all of this activity feeds not only you but also our local community.

I raise a fork to sharing amazing, delicious and nutritious food with you.
