A local small farm looking to connect to the community.

Welcome All,

Be you a backyard chicken keeper or an omnivore looking for locally raised pastured poultry, eggs (duck and chicken) and livestock, our co-op may have something for you.

This coming season as we at Jacob Springs Farm continue our development of raising healthy local food, we would like to extend to all an invitation to join in. 

Currently we have available or sale some of the regions best available grain mixes for feeding meat birds or egg layers of various species.  We use a corn and soy free grain mix for our growers (meat birds) and layers.  We have set up a self service station for the layer mix as that is the more common feed desired by those who keep backyard birds.  The grower feed is available by order as we do not have that in a self serve bin.  (grower feed is for meat bird and also used for the early development of layer flocks)(up to 16 weeks old)

We also are developing a "ushering" program.  A kind and humane method of culling your backyard birds...be it for a stock or crock pot for those so inclined...or simply to make available a program for bird keepers who have become attached to their egg laying companions and wish to send them off to that chicken coop in the sky (in an affordable, kind and respectful manner).

As Spring nears, look forward to announcements on various clinics for bird keepers, volunteer opportunities on a small scale urban farm and for opportunities to share in the buying power of an involved local food community (networking to make purchases of various goods for gardeners and homesteaders so that we may avail ourselves of group rates or bulk purchase rates and other savings)

Also, we hope that you will share with us, your input and suggestions of programs/clinics/classes and the like, along with desires for other various products and offerings that we may not have initiated.

There may be times that others have a need for things that we have not thought of or needed ourselves, yet if you take the lead on a program, you may find that you are not alone in the need for a certain product.

We have a farm with a tractor and the ability to offload containers or pallets and hold items for pick-up.  The tractor has both a front end loader (bucket) and an attachable fork lift too. 

We also have and will expand a place for group meetings and are building facilities to cook and prepare meals. 

So stay tuned for farm fresh food sales, picnics and more.

Your friends,

Andre and Seth

Hi, I am interested in any opportunities for work trade, or just volunteering at your farm co-op.  I am extremely interested in getting more hands on experience with chickens, as well as other animals.  I am going to be in Boulder all summer and possibly through the fall doing permaculture work, and would love to extend my experiences.  If you are interested maybe we I can come by and we can talk in person.  Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you.

-Max

David,

Hi, how are things?  You guys are more than welcome and you can also group your order in with us if you wish.  Our primary order will be Barred Plymouth Rocks for egg production.  But go to Purely Poultry.com to see the hatchery that we will be buying our chicks from

Seth,

The Applewood Permaculture Institute Gardening Team wants start working with chickens this spring.  Can we come up and visit the farm sometime in the next couple of weeks?
