Since the 1850's the farmers of San Luis, Colorado have been growing heritage corn and beans on their farms and ranches in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Many of our Cooperative members are descendents of Colorado's first Hispano settlers who migrated north from Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico. They brought with them their unique food culture, heirloom seeds, and a tradition of community-based sustainable farming and ranching practices.
Today, you can enjoy the tradition and delicious flavor of these heirloom products grown by our Colorado farmers. These heirloom crops have adapted to the high elevation of 8,000+ feet and short growing season.
