Local Roots Guide

“On the following pages, you will meet the farmers and ranchers who are growing locally and making their abundance available to the good people of the San Luis Valley and beyond. . .

This guide is dedicated to those who till the earth and tend the animals: to those who grow their own food and to those who grow it for others. Thank you for the bountiful harvest.”

Laz Ewe 2 Bar Goat Dairy Laz Ewe 2 Bar Goat Dairy and Knoblauch Ranch are a Colorado Centennial Ranch producing farmstead goat and cow cheeses. The Laz Ewe has partnered with 2RT Produce to raise grass-fed Scottish Highlander Beef using sustainable land management practices and is located between Del Norte and South Fork. The ranch pastures are managed without synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or insecticides. The animals graze the irrigated fields during the late spring and summer. During the winter, the goats are sheltered and fed ranch raised hay and the Scotties pasture in the meadows. The fifth generation Knoblauch Family raises steroid, hormone and antibiotic free animals on the ranch where the dairy is located. Laz Ewe is well-known for Chevre and Feta goat cheeses and Gouda, Havarti and seasonally Parmesan and Edam cow cheeses that are available in many stores across the Valley, the state of Colorado and south to New Mexico.
