Welcome to Buena Vida Farm. We Are a father-daughter team growing pesticide-free vegetables and Blue Spruce trees on the front range of Colorado.
Buena Vida Farm is happy to announce the availability of our Colorado Blue Spruce—picea pungens glauca—hearty tree stock for landscaping. A mature block of trees ranging 5-11 feet tall is ready to harvest from our farm between Windsor and Fort Collins. We offer wholesale competitive pricing based on quantity, size, delivery approach, and harvesting method.
Trees up to a 44-inch diameter root ball we will ball and burlap for you to pick up from the nursery in a trailer of your own. Alternately, and for larger trees, allow us to recommend a tree mover with a truck-mounted tree spade for direct delivery to your site.
The ever-growing Buena Vida Farm garden has been feeding family and friends since 1993. Pumpkins, yellow squash, black-eyed peas, raspberries, artichokes, asparagus—we enjoy growing heirlooms and other unique varieties.
A favorite : Rouge Vif d’Etampes: It made its way to North America in 1883, and according to heirloom experts it has a minor folklore role as the pumpkin that served Cinderella as a coach. Whether food for folktales or for soups and pies, this flat deeply grooved rouge-orange pumpkin causes plenty a double-take when displayed on the outdoor portales surrounding the the New Mexico territorial style homestead at Buena Vida Farm. One year we planted a crop of Jarrahdales and Rouge Vif d’Etampes between a couple of rows of blue spruce—an experiment yielding more than 500 specimens we then sold at the Larimer County Farmers’ Market. From there we increased our heirloom pumpkin crop to several thousand plants per year. We now sell the pumpkins at The Fort Collins Food Co-Op, Beavers Market, The Cupboard, and various restaurants—the FoCo Cafe, The Kitchen, The Farmhouse at Jessup Farm, and more.
Soon we'll have Goji Berries available for purchase, as well as garlic, onions, shallots, kale, carrots, artichokes, amaranth micro greens, and beets. Stay tuned! Recently we built a high tunnel to extend our growing season to feed people locally grown foods throughout the year. Look for our produce on restaurant menus around the front range : Heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant, spinach, brussels sprouts, even celery—all grown in our high tunnel.
