FARMMONT GALLERY

Longmont has an incredible diversity of local farms.  In many ways, they are the heart of our community.  Farming isn't easy, so get out these & support them.  They need your help. 

Here are some of our favorite local farm adventures.

In the summer of 2018, we challenged ourselves to visit 30 local farm stands in 30 days. It was a blast. Yes, it is possible. There are always new ones popping up and ones that we were too stuck-in-our-rut to know about. This Lavender Farm was one of our welcome surprise discoveries, McReilley Farms.
