Isabelle Farm is a family-run, Certified Organic farm that grows more than 80 varieties of produce and grains on 400 acres in Boulder County.
Our Farm Stand is open year-round. From June through December 23rd, we are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 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, cutting boards made from local reclaimed wood, 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.
It’s October, and both of our U-Pick Pumpkin Patches are open. Headed to the Farm Stand at Thomas Open Space? Make time to walk through the U-Pick Patch; it’s loaded with pumpkins of all sizes and great views. Looking for a destination Fall Harvest Festival? Our U-Pick Patch at our farm on Isabelle Road (OPEN DAILY during October only, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and on the SW corner of Hwy. 287 & Isabelle Road) has a corn maze, straw bale maze and a whole other set of picturesque possibilities. There’s no admission fee at either, so you can make a morning or afternoon of hopping our patches. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Isabelle Road Pumpkin Patch features hay rides and a handful of our farm animals. And, by popular demand and only on weekends, we also feature donuts & cider at the Isabelle Road location. The Thomas Open Space Pumpkin Patch offers the convenience of being next to the barn, so you can do your shopping and enjoy a patch experience at the same time. We hope you’ll visit us many times throughout October.
We also a number of Special Events throughout the year, including Beekeeping Classes, book readings and signings, gatherings at our farm stand, volunteer field days, as well as fundraisers for local nonprofits.
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.
