Isabelle Farm is a family-run, Certified Organic farm that grows more than 80 varieties of produce and grains on 500 acres in Boulder County.
Our Farm Stand is open year-round, Tuesday through Sunday, from 10-6. We sell a wide variety of our own fresh-harvested, USDA Organic produce, some hothouse local, organic produce, as well as a carefully curated selection of local all-natural meats, cheeses, milk and prepared and preserved foods. We are also proud to carry locally made all-natural soaps, pottery, beeswax candles, prints, paintings and cards, and more, so be sure to stop by when looking for a special gift. For an up-to-date list of what we’re harvesting, see About Our Farm Stand.
During the month of October, we also have two Pumpkin Patches: one at our Farm Store (open Tuesday-Sunday, 10-6) and another at our farm on the southwest corner of Highway 287 and Isabelle Road (10600 Isabelle Road in Lafayette, CO; open weekends only this year, due to Isabelle Road being closed to thru traffic Monday-Friday through November). At the Farm Store Patch, enjoy wandering the field as you hunt for a perfect pumpkin, take pictures next to the sunflowers and our vintage truck, buy a straw bale with which to decorate your front porch, then stop in at the farm store for a jug of fresh-pressed cider, jar of local honey or jam. At the Isabelle East Farm Pumpkin Patch, take a Tractor-Pulled Hay Ride, explore the Straw Bale & Corn Mazes and the U-Pick patch, meet the farm animals, and simply enjoy an hour or two on the farm. There’s no admission fee, but tractor-pulled rides are $3/person.
We also a number of Special Events throughout the year, including food swaps, holiday markets, musical performances, book readings and signings and volunteer field days.
WHY SUPPORT LOCAL FARMS?
Simply put, it’s good for the environment (the less your food travels, the less the impact on the environment), it’s good for the economy (keeps the money closer to home), and it’s good for you (the fresher the produce, the higher its nutritional value).
If you’re a stat hound, consider this: As of the 2012 USDA census, 9% of all farms were corporate run, but only a small number of that percentage were making 28% of ag-related sales.
Even now, more than 60% of our vegetables are imported from foreign countries. Beyond the obvious reasons for this being unfavorable, there’s the issue of regulation: Chemicals that are banned here are allowed abroad. And what qualifies as “certified organic” in some countries wouldn’t pass basic inspections here. For more information about the state of farming in the United States, go to the USDA’s website.
