Jodar Farms is a family-run farm located in Northern Colorado at the base of the picturesque Rocky Mountains. We are dedicated to producing wholesome, nutrient-rich foods. In order to produce such foods our animals are raised using all natural growing practices. We strongly believe that animals should experience the things in life that make us all happy… warm sunshine, green grass and cool breezes.

Along with producing healthy animals, we believe that people should know the whole truth about what they are eating. Complete records of where our animals come from, how they are raised and where they are processed are readily available. By keeping our members informed, we believe they will be able to make better decisions about the food they feed their families.

The Farmer

Aaron Rice is the individual tending the flocks at Jodar Farms. Fresh out of Colorado State University, Aaron is excited to be one of the first and only local sources of quality poultry in Northern Colorado. After studying the way industrial food is produced, he has become an advocate of the local food movement. Aaron’s business and personal practices are modeled after the food philosophies of Michael Pollan, Joel Salatin, Elliot Coleman and other food advocates.

Other Local Farms

In order to help promote the local food movement in Northern Colorado we have listed a few local farms that we recommend.

Native Hill Farm is a small local farm in the Fort Collins area that shares many of the same philosophies and ideals that we do. They produce a beautiful and high quality product. Their CSA utilizes the market model concept in order to maximize their member’s choices.

Happy Heart Farms of Fort Collins was the leader in Colorado for CSA farms 28 years ago. Not only do they offer a wide variety of products, they also offer a sense of community. Their “Feeding the Families” program has provided affordable access to quality produce for underprivileged families in Fort Collins.

Mark of Ollin Farms provides a great option for folks in the Longmont area. They have made a conscience commitment to community involvement through a CSA and youth involvement. In addition to their quality products, the convenience of their farm stand makes them a great choice for produce.

Be sure to check out the Jodar Farms farm stand for available produce and other local products.
