Farm Tours - Holy Terror

Holy Terror Farm
42485 Highway 133 Paonia, Colorado

 

In 2010, Alison Gannett and Jason Trimm quit the grocery store, choosing to homestead all their own food- with exceptions for coffee, chocolate, spices and salt. They raise and preserve everything the old fashioned way – from chickens, pigs, and cows for meat and fats – to nuts, berries, veggies, and grasses. Their 1883 farm, in the lush hidden Terror Creek valley, once provided 2% of all Colorado cherries. Holy Terror Farm is 2.4 miles east of Paonia on Highway 133 on the left/north, halfway between mile marker 11 and 12. If you get to Bowie, you have gone too far.

Open 10am-12pm
