  1. The Kitchen Table

    I truly feel that the heart of the house is the kitchen table. Kitchens are notoriously the place where everyone congregates at a party, they are usually the first room we visit after waking up (well, coffee junkies like me anyway), and in our house the kitchen is the last room to go dark at the end of the day. And for my money, the kitchen table is the most valuable piece of furniture in the hous…Read More

  2. What you should know about GMO

    GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms, and GE stands for Genetically Engineered. These terms are used to describe crops that have had their genetic structures modified by scientists. Genes from other plants, viruses, bacteria, animals, etc. are inserted into the genes of certain products ( such as corn and soybeans) to make them more stable and resistant to drought, disease and pesticides.…Read More

  4. Organic vs. Local – Which Is Better?

    Many small farms grow organically, but are not able to afford the certification or choose not to be certified.  The most important part of the answer to "Local" or "Organic" is to know who is growing your food.  At Grant Farms CSA, we partner with 25 Colorado farms and orchards to bring you produce at its peak of ripeness and seasonality.  We partner with growers who are the very best at what …Read More

  5. Local First

    Why Buy Local? Americans spend $600 Billion each year on food. Only about 7% of that is spent locally with so many great local options imagine the impact of keeping more money in our local community. Annually, Americans consume more than $600 billion in food.  In most communities today, food is purchased entirely at a grocery store of market, with only about 7% of local food dollars staying in th…Read More

  8. Seven additional acres to plant…and some new greenhouses!

    The 2016 season has begun on the farm. We are making great strides to return to more production of organically-grown fruits and vegetables for our CSA members.   We are very excited to add seven additional acres of organic land to our base of 22 acres at the home farm this year.   This will allow us to grow more diversity; it used to be very easy when we were farming over 2,000 acres to grow o…Read More

  10. Cooking Pastured Poultry

    As with ALL REAL PASTURED meats, including chicken they should be cooked LESS (sometimes just in a little more than half the time) because the meat is more dense and does not have all of the additives that the Industry has accustomed us to in our food. This is dramatically true with Beef (I have some beautiful beef at home that would be jerky if I cooked it a 'normal' time.) The meat tends to be l…Read More
