Colorado Small Farm Classifieds
Definition and Justification: A small farm, as defined by the USDA, is a farm “with less than $250,000 gross receipts annually on which day-to-day labor and management are provided by the farmer and/or farm family that owns the production or owns, or leases, the productive assets.” Currently, small farm operators are limited in finding production and resource inputs through non-targeted paid classifieds via local newspapers, “The Thrifty Nickel”, “The Fence Post”, “Ag Journal”, etc. and online listings such as Craig’s list. These media have a limited capacity to reach the desired small farm audience.

Intent: The intent of this listing is to provide a dedicated channel for sourcing inputs for small farm operations. It is not intended to replicate these existing opportunities for classifieds.

Audience: Vegetable, fruit, niche livestock, hay, flower, herb producers in Colorado.

Function and Scope: This is a free service provided by Adrian Card, Extension Agent, CSU Extension, Boulder County. The extent of scope here is for INPUTS for small farm operations in Colorado. Examples of these inputs include: seed, seedlings, greenhouse media, compost, manure, tractors, implements, irrigation supplies, feed, immature livestock, irrigated farmland for sale or lease, etc. Small farm products not used as inputs will not be listed here (i.e. – hay/feed may be listed but pumpkins will not be listed). All listings are published at the discretion of Adrian Card.
