As one national crisis segues into another we must turn to the grounding we all need: the food from our food shed. Let us invest into our farming communities, helping them develop, grow, and nurture living soils and produce living food with no biases. Amidst confusion, media disunity, and and widespread unrest, the one thing we have is clear, pure local food that is growing our local economies. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts!
Thanks for taking this journey with us. For those folks taking the CSA Fresh Box journey with us starting June 19th, we are excited for the season that is coming. Aside from a major cherry crop failure due to late frosts in the Western Slope, Colorado produce is well on its way to your kitchens.
In local foods we trust.

Conner Orchards has almost 600 lavender plants, including Grosso, Melissa, Folgate, and Purple Bouquet. We also have French Fields, Malleitte and Edelwiess. We offer only micro-crop artisan lavender from the alpine region of Colorado.
Lavender Hot Chocolate Makes a great tasty treat frozen or iced during the warm summer months!
In a blender add hot chocolate mix, milk of choice, and ice for a frozen drink. Or keep it simple, and pour hot chocolate and milk mixture over ice.
