Abundant Life Organic Farm
We are a family operated farm located in the beautiful North Fork Valley of Colorado, which is home to numerous organic farms and orchards. By family farm, I mean our children work with us and are an integral part of what we do. They have been raised on the farm and are hard workers. We are mostly a market farm at this point and our main income comes from direct selling of our product at farmers’ markets. We have a total of 90 acres, with about 10 under production. Come and visit us at the Telluride and Aspen Farmers’ Markets! Fridays 10:30-4:00 in Telluride. Saturdays 8:00-3:00 in Aspen.

Austin Family Farms
Austin Family Farm is nestled in a pristine mountain valley at the edge of Colorado’s West Elk Mountains. We (Glenn and Tony Austin) have nurtured the soils and pioneered sustainable growing methods since moving here in 1970. You might say that soil runs through our veins. Coming from 7 generations of farmers we hope to see many more generations live on the farm and learn to unlock the secrets of its bounty. Fulfilling our farming dreams, three generations of our family now live and work on our small family farm. We welcome the opportunity to share our passion for this simpler lifestyle with all who desire to get closer to the soils that sustain them while supporting local agriculture.
