LaJoyia Farm

[/heading][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]We are excited to welcome LaJoyia Farm back to the Slow Food Farmers Market! LaJoyia Farm is a small family-run farm located in eastern Boulder County. They use only organic growing methods and produce a variety of goods including fruits, vegetables, flowers, herbs, and salad mixes. LaJoyia Farm began their farming practices in response to the negative impact that conventional farming methods have on our current food system. They “realized that, as intimidating as these issues seem to be, a simple shift towards sustainable local food production can help to resolve them.”

LaJoyia Farm also recognizes the positive impact that producing local food can have on local economy and on creating relationships throughout the community. The name of their farm, LaJoyia, was chosen to honor family food traditions and highlight the joy the farmers have in growing produce.

This week at the Slow Food Farmers Market, LaJoyia Farm will be selling:

  • Summer Salad Mix
  • Swiss Chard
  • Kale
  • Leaf Lettuce Heads
  • Baby Carrots
  • Beets
  • Fresh Cut Herbs
  • Fresh Cut Flowers

We are very excited to have LaJoyia Farm back to sell at our market!
