The Farm Store is located at our farm at 36730 River Frontage Rd, New Castle, CO 81647.
We opened up the farm store so that our local community can access our fresh produce year round. The little red farm store is adding more and more products every week. It has become a unique and true resource for Fresh Eats members, neighbors and friends. Our goal is to carry the best organic Colorado products as well as other excpetional and sustainable foods. We want this store to offer a complete diet of vegetables, fruits, dairy, proteins and other household staples. In addition, the store also carries our full line of organic bedding plants every spring.
Whats in the store?
VEGGIES: Osage Gardens's grows year round. We always try to have a diverse and abundant supply of our nutrient dense, organic vegetables and herbs available throughout the year. Although some of our offerings and variety depends on the season, we produce some products year round. Our tomatoes are probably our most popular product followed closely by all of our greens: salad mix, arugula, spinach, kales, swiss chard, pea shoots, micro greens, sunflower sprouts, and the list goes on!
For our Farm Store, we also try to bring in the seasonal delights that our regional farmers produce, like Palisade peaches, and Olathe sweet corn. We partner up with several local farmers in our region to bring you the greatest selection of local fruits and vegetables.
In addition being a source of organic vegetables for our local community, we are Colorado's largest grower of Culinary Herbs. We offer a full line of culinary herbs, as well as a Live Basil Product all year long.
DAIRY: At our Farm Store we carry wonderful milk from Morning Fresh Dairy in Bellvue, Colorado (right outside of Ft. Collins). Morning Fresh Milk is low-temp pasteurized, is in the long (7 years!) process of organic certification, comes from cows that are given no hormones or antibiotics, and are grass-fed and free-range. The whole milk that we carry is also non-homogenzed, so the cream wil rise to the top. Yum. Basically it's good old-fashioned milk!
We carry 1%, 2% and whole milk in half-gallons, and quarts of wonderfully rich whipping cream, half-and-half (which is certainly not fat-free--how is that even possible??--but is soooo yummy) and the best chocolate milk you've ever had. Morning Fresh Milk comes in glass bottles that will be sanitzed and reused when you return them.
Come down to the Farm Store to pick up some wonderful milk to try for yourself!
MEAT: We are proud to offer a wide selection of Crystal River Meats at our farm store. Crystal River Meats is based in Carbondale. All of their meat comes from locally raised, 100% grass fed on open pastures and locally harvested hay. They don't use hormones or antibodies -ever. We carry ground beef, hamburger patties, hotdogs, sausages, and a great selection of cuts of lamb and beef. In addition we offer pork products from Bottoms Up Farm in Paonia, such as bacon and pork chops.
CHEESE: At the Osage Garden's Farm Store, we carry the region's prized handmade cheeses such as: Avalance Cheese Company from Basalt, Colorado. Avalanche Cheese Company makes fabulous goat cheeses from their own goats which are raised and grased on their farm in Paonia, CO. Try the Chevre log, the goat cheddar, the award-winning Cabra Blanca and Midnight Blue Cheese. We also carry MouCo Brie & camembert Style Cheeses and Utah's award winning Beehive Cheese Company cheddars.
EGGS: We have eggs at the farm store from our very own chickens. We call them our "gourmet" chickens since they eat lots of fresh organic culinary herbs year round -plus lots of other plant scraps. This makes the yolks bright orange and super delicious.
FISH: We have the exceptional smoked fish products from Eagle Smoked Salmon as well as fresh fish products from Eagle Smoked Salmon and Kaleb's Katch.
