Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
