Our Impact

We envision a local food system that is equitable, resilient, environmentally sustainable, and inclusive.

One in which farmers and farm workers have the resources they need to thrive and farm safely, community members have reliable access to healthy, local, and sustainably grown food, and everyone feels inspired to engage in their local food community.

At GoFarm, we use a system approach to strengthen our local food system (the process of how food gets from Colorado farms to our plates, and everything in between). We focus on:

  • How We Grow Food: Supporting local farmers, mentoring beginning farmers, increasing the supply of sustainably-grown food.

  • How We Distribute Food: Connecting community members, institutions, and food pantries to local agriculture.

  • Who Can Access and Afford Food: Making sustainably-grown food more accessible and affordable in our community.

  • How We Build Community: Bringing people together through events, storytelling, education, workshops, markets, and more.

GoFarm's Impact

Support Local Farmers

  • helping beginning and aspiring farmers start their own farm business and master farming techniques. Helping break down barriers of entry into careers in sustainable agriculture.

  • offering a convenient wholesale market where we let the farmers tell us their price, instead of the other way around
