Welcome! Living high in the Colorado Rocky Mountains is a real treat. In some ways it can be a challenge, but it’s well worth the effort. Everyday tasks are all just a little bit different at 9,000 ft elevation, far from any stores, but minor adjustments to the routine makes life work.

We grow food both outdoors and in our greenhouse, raise ducks for eggs, learn how to adjust recipes for high elevation, work on many ranch projects, and most of all we continually strive to learn more about our Creator.
