Owners Glenn and Tony AustinWelcome to Austin Family Farm

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.  Kids and grandkids are learning to coax nutrient-rich produce from the soils of this beautiful valley.  Over the decades we have dedicated ourselves to growing quality produce with methods we refer to as "non-certified organic".  Our farming practices go "beyond organic" and are "gentler" than organic standards.  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.
