You’ve found it – this is the place to learn about backyard farming on the Front Range. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, backyard farming on the Front Range requires a skill set above and beyond that held by the average backyard farmer. Our challenges are greater than in other places, and as a result our solutions have to be more creative and advanced. You live in the city but bears are still breaking into your bee hive? You’ll find the solution to that problem on this blog. You want to plant your spring garden but are certain there are at least two more spring snows coming? You’ll find the solution to that problem on this blog as well. You know you need to prune your grape vines and haven’t the slightest idea how? You guessed it, you’ll find the solution to that problem, also on this blog.
As backyard farmers in Colorado Springs we’ve “been there, done that” with regard to gardening, growing fruit, and caring for animals. Yes, that was us out wrangling ducks in a surprise snowstorm, that was us chasing foxes off of the rabbit hutches at 3:00 o’clock in the morning, and that was us staring at the stick in the ground that used to be a peach tree because we didn’t water it over the winter. We jokingly declare that we have made every mistake possible – twice. We have also had amazing successes and we want to share those stories with you. We are so happy that you have found this project. Sign-up for our free updates to get all of our great information sent directly to you.
We posts on all aspects of backyard farming on the Front Range – from Aquaponics to Zucchini. You’ll learn about the latest innovations, the lowest of the low tech solutions, and you’ll get information that actually works, for you, that brave gardener trying to grow watermelons at 5,280′. If backyard farming is your thing and you want all the best information, if you’re brand new to the madness and need a soft place to land, or if you’re just trying to figure out what all of the buzz is about, you’ve come to the right place.
