At the property, the owners do their best to live sustainably, raising healthy and happy goats, hogs, chickens, and assorted farm animals along with flowers, organic garden vegetables and native pasture grasses. Solar panels collect energy, and recycling and composting are encouraged. Farm-raised pork, eggs, and seasonally, goat’s milk and honey products are also for sale.
This home and its individual rooms are perfect for families visiting students, visitors attending weddings, corporate stays for traveling professionals, artists and writers or anyone looking to have a relaxing Colorado country experience.
