Ivywild Farm is an artisan farm located in the historic Ivywild neighborhood of Colorado Springs, Colorado. We are small in size but large in principles. We grow our produce without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. Our egg-layers are fed organic feed and greens fresh from the garden, and honey bees are fed organic evaporated cane juice when wild flower nectars are running low.
The food we produce has a smaller carbon footprint than food produced on larger farms, because we use no petroleum dependent farm machinery. More significant for a water challenged city like Colorado Springs, we use 90% less water than conventional farming by utilizing an aquaponics system for much of our produce.
As an owner-operated small business, buying from Ivywild Farm does more to stimulate the Colorado Springs economy than buying from a chain grocer. The revenue coming into Ivywild Farm stays in Colorado Springs and is then re-spent in our local community.
