Did you know you can get the same fresh, organic produce that we sell to restaurants and grocery stores from us to use in your own kitchen?
With our GOBOXES, Denver-area residents can taste the same great-quality produce that the best food suppliers in the cities use at the same great price. Before last week, we offered 3 GOBOX options— a small box (feeds 1-2), a large box (feeds 3-4) and the 'Pretty Ugly Box' (feeds 1-2 people, with delicious but slightly 'ugly' produce that helps to reduce waste + $1 of the proceeds donated to the Denver non-profit 'We Don't Waste'.)

We couldn't do this without our amazing Colorado organic farmers that grow amazing fruit and vegetables every year. These farm spotlights are meant to champion those farmers who are helping make Colorado a more healthy, sustainable (and delicious!) place.
MEET FIELD TO FORK FARM
We're honored to introduce you to Scott and Jessica Washkowiak— the owners of Field to Fork Farm in Palisade, Colorado. They have practiced organic agriculture for more than a decade together, but Scott has been in the field since 1998. He grew up working on a big conventional farm in Illinois, and he said it provided a clear window to see the need for more farmers to grow food, not ingredients.
The couple met in 2005 in Breckenridge, Colorado, and mo...
Because this mission is similar to our values at Grower's Organic, we're delighted to see that several of our produce partners will be participating in the festival. If you stop by the festival this weekend, we hope that you'll stop by one of their events to support Colorado's organic food scene.
