This one hurt! And despite the simplicity of the art, cat tails are extremely meaningful to me and my family. For over 30 years the land behind our home sat vacant as developer after developer tried to build on it, but shut down their prospective projects because of the cat tails. See these plants earned the agricultural ditch that runs through the property, a “wetlands” designation and in turn, gave jurisdiction protected by the Army corps of engineers and disallowed any filling of or bridging over the ditch. So more developers gave up on the lot. For 2 years we worked on this purchase and finally a buyer agreed to parcel off the back portion of the land and sell it to us so they could build on the other side of the ditch. We now have over two acres of production land to grow amazing, organic fruits and vegetables for our family and the community. Our dream of owning a productive and profitable market farm, came true because of cat tails. ...but ouch! #fleischerfamilyfarm #fallenowltattoo #cattails #newink #ouch #wetlands #dreamscometrue
So thankful for the community we find ourselves surrounded by. Today’s volunteer day was a HUGE success. So many wonderful people (only about half made it into photos unfortunately) helped us take another step towards improving this land. We appreciate and love you all, and we could not/wouldn’t want to do this without you. #fleischerfamilyfarm #volunteerday #buildingcommunitythroughfood #amazingpeople #thankyouallsomuch
We did it!!!!! Season 1 on the new farm complete! It was an amazing 18 week CSA season but we are very thankful to have crossed the finish line and after tomorrow’s volunteer day, put this land to rest for a while. Love and appreciation to all of you. Thanks for your support and belief in us. Until next year... #fleischerfamilyfarm #thatsawrap #thankyou #mylady #dreamteam
Awesome night enjoying the benefits of being a local producer at the growhause with some good friends and this beautiful woman. Chelsie Fleischer #endofseason #fleischerfamilyfarm #thegrowhaus #harvestweek #localfood
Ripped out all of the year’s end harvest, moved this year’s compost into bin #2 and already pretty much filled bin #1 back up, did a guest lecture at Denver University for an International Food Policy Class, picked up about 20 new shrubs and trees from the nursery for install on this Sunday’s volunteer day and still managed to get in and have a little family time before dark. This is me taking a personal day from work so that I can work...🤤😴 Come see us this Saturday between 10-2 at our last farmstand of the season. We will still have LOTS of veggies, jack-o-lanterns from the pumpkin patch, @mile_high_fungi blue oyster mushrooms, our fresh batches of homemade beeswax soaps (Christmas Spruce and Chocolate Pumpkin Latte), honey and more! #fleischerfamilyfarm #stormsacomin #deepfreeze #shuttingitdown #newtrees #denveruniversity #imexhausted #epsomsaltbathtime
