I’ve had a couple of readers contact me in the past couple of weeks and ask for a listing of you-pick farms in the Colorado Springs area. Problem is, we just don’t have many, so there’s not much of a list! Here are the two that I know of in the Colorado Springs area:
Happy Apple Farm in Canon City – you-pick apples and pumpkins in season.
High Altitude Rhubarb Farm in Black Forest – you-pick rhubarb (two days a year only) and local honey
And farther north, north of Denver, there is:
Miller Farms – you-pick potatoes, pumpkins, corn, tomatoes, and lots of other produce during their Spring and Fall Festivals.
The western slope of Colorado is more conducive to growing things, so there are probably more over there if you want to drive a ways. Do you know of any other places where you can pick berries, apples, and other produce in Colorado Springs and the surrounding area?
