Belafonte Farm

About the Farm

The farm was born out of a desire to share good food with people – to us, food and friends are among the greatest joys of life! The mission is to better coexist with nature through local agriculture. To accomplish this, Belafonte Farm will provide community-preferred nutritious food while they build fertile soil, increase biological diversity and improve farm-use water efficiency. The vision is to develop an agrarian system that can provide sustainable year-round, quality food to the community. Their long-term goal is to establish a full-diet CSA program and a farm-to-table pay-what-you-can cafe. 2023 will be their second season in operation and Belafonte Farm will be offering organically grown vegetables, fruit, herbs, and flowers through a Community Supported Agriculture program and at the Larimer County Farmers’ Market. Also, enjoy their produce seasonally through local programs, events, at restaurants, and now Morning Fresh Dairy Home Delivery!

About the Farm Owner

Dennis discovered the importance of quality food and responsible farming while traveling an assortment of wild places from trails and seas to cities. His whole life, Dennis has greatly valued time spent in nature and decided to dig deep with farming as his vocation after traveling the world for a few years and departing his past mechanical engineering career. His mission is to live connected to nature both through outdoor recreation and as a steward of the land through farming – nourishing people and the planet through a holistic approach.

With previous farming experience at Frith Farm in Maine and Ridge to Reef Farm in St. Croix, Dennis has now returned to Fort Collins to start Belafonte Farm. After some initial setup at Belafonte Farm, he will practice organic, no-till, human scale methods, and continuously develop the farm to become an acre of delicious food production!

Dennis enjoys each season but wishes there was a way to have double summers to farm and hike a long-distance trail all in the same year! Either way, you will find him happily covered in soil!

Folks Farm & Seed

About the Farm

Folks Farm and Seed is a small, ecologically-minded farm located in Fort Collins, Colorado. They grow regionally adapted vegetables, flowers, and herb. They use regenerative agriculture practices including: seed saving and selection, composting, cover cropping, diverse plantings, and low-till farming. These techniques produce nutrient-dense superfood grown with beyond organic standards.

While providing their community with high caliber produce is a priority, Folks Farm & Seed is dedicated to bioregional adaption and seed-saving. Through annual and bi-annual selection, they breed garden crops to be drought resistant, produce stronger root systems, effectively mine nutrients, and be more resilient in Colorado’s changing climate. By partnering with several seed growers across the west, they work towards preserving adapted heirloom cultivars.

Industrial seed and chemical companies have replaced most local seed producers and further patented crops to keep farmers from the personal sovereignty of gardening and seed saving. By utilizing bioregional seeds, they strengthen their independence and directly oppose the devastating effects of corporate agriculture. This isn’t supermarket produce, these are their Folk’s crops raised with love in their seed-to-seed model.

Since then his passion and experience have expanded to encompass seed saving, biodynamics, and growing delicious produce. Alex is passionate about how food connects people and how choices made in agriculture reverberate out into our culture and future.
