Where We Are
Raisin’ Roots Farm has been a part of the Larimer County community since 2015, beginning as a small operation in Laporte, Colorado. In 2017, Ben moved the farm to its current location in Northwest Fort Collins on Taft Hill & Vine.
How We Grow
Raisin’ Roots operates on several acres of arable land through the generosity of Dennis Vanderheiden, the property owner. We grow 60+ heirloom and organic varieties of vegetables throughout the year.
Companion planting, soil amending, lack of pesticides and low-till growing practices ensure delicious, nutritious produce and a healthy soil ecosystem for seasons to come.
Raisin’ Roots also produces humanely raised, pastured eggs from 120 laying hens and seasonal pork shares.
Who We Serve
Based in a residential neighborhood of Fort Collins, Raisin’ Roots is committed to being a “good neighbor” in every sense.
We believe that equitable access to produce is a cornerstone of community longevity. For this reason, we are SNAP/EBT certified at both the local farmers’ market and our weekly farm stand.
Rooted in Community
We have a thriving volunteer work-trade community where, in exchange for 4-6 hours of volunteering per week, anyone is entitled to a full farm share of produce.
Join Our CSA!
The farm offers 65 seasonal CSA shares, including payment plans and pro-rated options. Please see our “CSA” tab for more info.
Our 2019 CSA Share registration is NOW ON A WAITLIST! We do have shares come available throughout the season, so if you are interested, please still sign up at our CSA Registration Link.
Where Is Our Produce Sold?
You can find us at the Larimer County Farmers’ Market in Old Town Fort Collins. The market runs 9 am to 1 pm and is located at Mountain & Howes, every Saturday from May through October.
Beginning May 24th through late October, we will be operating our Roadside Farm Stand from 4pm – 7pm for sales to the public.
