Community Agriculture Alliance: High altitude harvest 3.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Fall has arrived, always as a bittersweet reflection of the short summer now behind us and a reminder of the long winter ahead. In most places in the U.S., fall is a time where pumpkins grow fat, and farmers and gardeners watch as their fall crops take shape. The evenings start to get a little chilly, and the relief from the hot days is welcomed. Not here. Fall in the Yampa Valley is just the hustle to prepare for winter — tuning the skis, chopping, hunting, canning, putting on snow tires and getting out boxes of winter clothes. Raking leaves? Doubtful if it can happen before the first snow, but maybe. During this time, gardeners reflect on their 59 days of frost-free weather and take stock of how their fall crops are growing — fall crops being the crops that most of us plant in lieu of summer crops. Each year, I am amazed by the amount of food that Routt County folks can grow here. I’ve had pumpkins grow to 30 pounds and just saw proof of the same when I stopped by the Routt County Extension Office the ...

Routt County approves new conservation easement on Deep Creek 25.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Routt County commissioners agreed this week to fund the conservation of the 459-acre Deep Creek Meadows Ranch in the South Elk River Valley with the help of $330,000 of voter-approved tax dollars devoted to protecting the landscape of Routt County from future development. The ranch, which straddles Deep Creek, a major tributary of the Elk River, has been in agricultural production since the 1930s. Fred and Flora Wolf have owned and operated the ranch with productive irrigated hay meadows for 30 years. The easement is being funded in part by the owners, who have donated 53.6 percent, or $555,000, of the ranch’s appraised value of $1.035 million, along with $150,000 from the federal Natural Resources Conservation Service and $330,000 from the county’s Purchase of Development Rights fund. The Yampa Valley Land Trust, which has conserved 52,000 acres through 72 conservation easements and has been especially effective in conserving large, contiguous parcels in the Elk River Valley, will hold and manage the ...
