Business Description

Our goal is to promote agricultural activities in the Denver metropolitan area for a variety of reasons. First, for sustainability, i.e. renewing and preserving our energy and resources. Second, for growing and raising our own quality food and getting in touch with food sources. Third, for energy conservation. Fourth, for fun. Growing vegetables is fun. Raising food-producing animals is fun. Fifth, because a chicken living in your backyard and playing with a child is probably living a happier life than a chicken living on a factory farm.
