About Me

Back of Beyond Farm is a small, family run operation in Rist Canyon, Colorado. We work closely with natural rhythms to create wellness teas from indigenous and naturalized plants. 2013 marks our 4th year of supporting our community through tasty teas. In the year ahead, we hope to continue our work of not only producing healthful teas, but also exploring the edges of what it means to farm and be a part of a place.

Soups and Stews

Wow. Our Stove Prairie Winter Festival Weekend was incredibly successful - for the school and the little farmers. So much gratitude for the support of our whole community - tea drinkers and farmers and hunters and firefighters and friends and little kids and big people for deer and elk and grouse and pheasant the 1000 of snow geese that flew over one night a few weeks back.

The forest gave trees to celebrate this abundance - Molly and Carla and Gene and Josef and Elliot and Trinity and Jen and Dave and Mia and Cleo and Brendon and Sarah and Luke and Maggie and Gracie and Walt and Sophia and Kendol and Megan and AnnMarie and Nicole will all be sharing a bit of our home this Holiday.

So now, a few more deliveries and tending the soups and stews of chicken carcass and bison bone base. Warming smells, in an awfully warm late Fall.

A little rest for now - I'll rejoin the conversation next week - after celebrating St. Nicholas Day and the birth of our Earth Boy, Makabe - a full decade on this Good Earth.
