Photos: Harvesting Holiday Gifts at Broken Shovels Farm

Broken Shovels Farm is a special place: Andrea Davis's patch of land at 8640 Dahlia Street in Commerce City holds an artisanal cheesery, a working goat farm, an animal shelter, a petting zoo, a concert venue and a rural pocket of love. On December 18, it was a very snowy, cold pocket — but the people who made it to the annual Holiday Market were rewarded with plenty of warm feelings — and good deals for seasonal gift-giving. Photographer Kenneth Hamblin III was there to harvest all the sights.
Now see the Broken Shovels Farm Holiday Market slideshow.
