We estimate our season running from mid-June to mid-October, but it will depend on weather conditions.

Enjoy farm-to-table living with our community farm. In addition to our organically-grown vegetables, herbs, fruits, and fresh cut flowers, our lush farm is home to a thriving apiary with bees that pollinate plants and supply honey. A flock of chickens lays delicious, fresh eggs. We’re also happy to provide floral bouquets for occasions large and small, including weddings.
It’s important to us to model sustainable agriculture. Our farm uses strict organic and regenerative practices to grow resilient and nutrient-dense produce. We’re one of the largest farms in the area that grows in an ecologically responsible manner, protecting not only our customers, but also our farmers, the micro-organisms necessary for healthy soil, and all life downstream.
Twin Buttes Farm consists of five fields in the community development area, totaling about 1.5 acres. We have an additional 1.5 acres at the Twin Buttes Farm at Carver’s, in the Animas River Valley just north of town.
In addition to our Farm Stand, we supply the following grocery stores and restaurants:
- Durango Natural Foods
- Nature’s Oasis
- The Ore House
- Carver Brewing Company
- The Boathouse at Electra
- Zia Taqueria
- Raider Ridge Cafe
- Leland House and Rochester Hotel (eggs only)
Twin Buttes’ farm-to-table living keeps us connected to locally grown food, the natural world, and to each other.
Twin Buttes Farm helps deepen the community’s understanding of food, where it comes from, and how it is produced by offering classes and demonstrations. We’ll post these events to our Calendar. To receive more details about them and to learn how to join in the fun, please sign up below for our newsletter or like our Facebook page.
Want to learn something particular about gardening? Our farmers are happy to take requests for topics for classes or demonstrations.
Learn to Graft Your Own Apple Tree!
March 24, 2018, 9:00am – 12:00 noon
$30 All materials provided. Participants will take home three of their own trees at the end of the class.
Maximum number of attendees: 15
Join Colorado nursery professional Jeff Wagner and the Twin Buttes Farm staff for a fun and interesting class on the history of apples, and learn how to graft your own.
Grafting is an old practice that’s enjoying a big comeback. It’s an ancient technique that is still widely used by nurseries to propagate fruit, ornamental, and shade trees. Apples are one of the best trees to learn on and they also have a deep and rich history in horticulture.
Don’t forget to wear weather-appropriate clothing; we’ll be outside!
