Urban Farms

Urban Farming

Urban farming is an important strategy for addressing food insecurity and healthy nutrition by providing Jeffco residents with a reliable source of healthy and affordable foods. In addition to the impact on food insecurity, urban farming adds value to the local economy, provides opportunities for community involvement and helps create a sustainable urban ecological system. There are currently over 50 urban farms in Jefferson County.

About CSAs

One of the best ways to support local food and agriculture is to purchase directly from farmers at farm stands and farmers markets, or through a Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm share.

CSA is a model in which customers buy pre-season shares of local crops. Buying a CSA share supports farmers early in the season when the cost of seeds, equipment and more can deplete a farmer's cash reserves. In return, farmers educate shareowners about farming and introduce them to new varieties of produce.
