We are a tiny sustainability-focused farm nestled into the gorgeous San Luis Valley of the Colorado Rockies.
We offer vegetable and herb plant starts, beyond-organic produce, free-range eggs, homemade healthy energy bars, and a variety of unique arts and crafts for sale to our local community and those visiting or travelling through our area.
At Heartshine Homestead, our goal is to live, work, relax, and utilize resources in a way that respects the delicate balances and mighty forces at play throughout the natural world. We consider ourselves to be the temporary stewards of this gorgeous 43-acre patch of high-altitude wilderness in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and we make every effort to leave as little trace of human activity as possible as we go about the construction and operation of our venture.
We grow our plants in a beyond-organic fashion. Our gardens are 100% free from manufactured pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. We are guided by permaculture philosophies and techniques in our farming and building practices, so as to benefit from Mother Nature’s gifts while simultaneously taking care of the ecosystem we are honored to be a part of. We emphasize soil-health-focused, regenerative methods and no-till gardening. Our prepared foods use organic ingredients whenever possible. We are off-grid, minimize our use of fossil fuels, and strive to use plastics only when necessary. We pride ourselves in reusing, repurposing, reclaiming, and recycling at every juncture possible.
We believe that human-to-human connection is indispensably valuable and it is important to us to give back to our community on an ongoing basis, so we routinely donate a portion of our produce and proceeds to our local food banks. Thank you for sharing in our dream of lovingly nourishing our fellow humans’ minds, bodies, spirits, and relationships in healthy, holistic, connected ways that honor the natural environment! YOU make our hearts shine!
