    5 Things to Do on Boulder's Farms

    Experience Boulder’s acclaimed food scene at its source, take a few Boulder farm tours, get a little dirt on your hands and meet some furry friends.

    1. U-Pick It

    Pick your own raspberries at the oh-so-charming Hoot n’ Howl Farm (say “hi” to their backyard chickens as you let yourself through the gate) or dig your own irises in May and June at Long’s Gardens (close to downtown Boulder).

    2. Get Farm Smarts 

    On-the-farm classes let you get up-close-and-personal to the land and its farmers. Take a course on wild herb picking and natural medicine at Three Leaf Farm, an officially designated botanical sanctuary; sign up for a farm fiber workshop from the talented folks at Mountain Flower Goat Dairy; or choose a beekeeping class at Growing Gardens

    3. Dine Fresh

    Feel free to kick up your boots, chat and laugh under a string of shimmering lights on Eden-like Lone Hawk Farm. There are many more farm dinner options around Boulder. Meadowlark Farms hosts a huge lineup of farm dinners every summer at at various farms around Boulder County — but you'll need to plan in advance, as seats are sold on a lottery system.

    4. Shop the Farms

    Pick up some famous peaches-and-cream sweet corn from Munson Farms (and grab a great photo op); pick up skeins of super-soft wool from Cure Organic Farm; or stop at Ollin Farms, where an on-site helper can point you to the best picks. Also keep an eye out for neighborhood “farm” stands right in town. In Boulder, it’s legal for hobby gardeners to sell their extra garden bounties.

    5. Picnic in Style

    Spread out a quilt in the sun, unpack some goodies and lunch it up while you watch life on the farm. Lone Hawk Farm allows picnics on their barn balcony.
