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.”

Bartee Ranch & Bartee Family Foods A fourth generation farm and ranch, where our mission is to be "a family oriented operation that produces high-quality products by ethically caring for the abundant resources God has given us." All of our products are homegrown and lovingly cared for using organic practices that are natural and hormone-free. To the greatest extent possible, we feed our animals the organic feeds that we raise ourselves-- thus we can ensure the highest quality food for our livestock, including chickens, pork, lamb, and beef. The eggs, lambs, and pork aspects of our farm are owned and managed by our two sons: Tyler and Kolby, who are using these ventures to build their college fund so they can contine our legacy and serve as the fifth generation to care for our land. You may purchase our products either "on the hoof" delivered to the processor of your choice or by the cut through our sister company Bartee Family Foods. We look forward to serving you!
