The economic crisis caused by the onset of Covid-19 upended daily life for many residents of the Gunnison Valley, including access to high quality, locally grown food. In response to a community need, the Crested Butte Land Trust and Mountain Roots Food Project partnered on a grant-funded project to convert a small parcel of land into a mighty community farm. Now capable of producing several thousand pounds of food for the people of Gunnison County, we are proud to continue to partnership with the help of many volunteers every summer.
Glacier Farm would not be a reality without the generous support from Great Outdoors Colorado, the Gates Family Foundation, Mountain Roots Food Project, Bob Niccoli, private donors, and the Crested Butte Land Trust. Glacier Farm is operated by Mountain Roots Food Project on a historic agricultural parcel owned by the Crested Butte Land Trust.
