These folks have been organic since ’70s


The farm started when Lewis Grant, an atmospheric sciences professor at Colorado State University, had a small hobby farm in his backyard. Grant’s son Andy grew interested in agriculture watching his father “play in the mud on the weekends.” He took that interest to CSU, where he earned a degree in agricultural business. In 1975, when Andy decided to make his father’s hobby a commercial enterprise, the concept of organic was still in gestation.
