Neoteric Farms

Neoteric Farms Neoteric Farms is a one man urban farm passionate about providing quality, local, truly organic food to local restaurants and farmers markets

Neoteric Farms was born out of two friends who were passionate about one common thing, quality local grown organic food. For years we traded produce, seeds, soil secrets, and friendship that ultimately blossomed into wanting to build a business together. Something to share our passion and produce with our local community. So why Microgreens? Being in Colorado, we don't exactly have the longest growing season around. We wanted to produce something that will keep us in constant contact with local chefs and consumers. Microgreens are something we can produce year-round, and on a fairly quick production turn around. THE GROWERS Ryan Richardson and Benton McKibben met around 2008 in the Colorado Master Gardener program. They were both seeking further horticultural and botanical knowledge to increase their increasing passion for growing organic food. After several seasons of working together producing field crops, they decided to take their product to the local market. In the fall of 2015 they started a business that could provide the local community a much needed source for organically grown fresh produce. Neoteric farms provides Denver Colorado and surrounding areas with high quality, amazing tasting, and organically grown Microgreens.

Our space on the farm is somewhat limited.. I wanted somewhere to put some our bees... we also needed a shed.. the bees are going on top of the shed. Vertical stacking in a different sort of way ! ๐Ÿ

We were recently called out to a downed tree that had a bee hive inside. This tree was huge ! 48โ€ caliper ! By the time we arrived the bees had already swarmed. The owner of the downed tree was sad we couldnโ€™t relocate the bees but let us take the majority of comb for wax and honey that I can in turn, feed to my bees ๐Ÿ

Had to do our heated greenhouse roof.... again... hail is crazy sometimes. We went with some polycarbonate this time which is what our walls are made of.. itโ€™s going to take another record setting hail like we had several years ago to get through the new roof.. hereโ€™s hoping for the best weather ! @ Neoteric Farms

Huge thanks to Denver Westword for coming out and highlighting the work we do on the farm and also the music created behind the farm by Mire. It was great to drink some mead together and discuss farming and metal tunes!

In 2014, Benton McKibben made the natural shift from metal music to organic food and Neoteric Farms.
