Our farm's focus is on growing the most nutritious produce possible, while working with the ecosystem to maintain and encourage natural diversity. We're also passionate about helping folks develop a relationship with the land. All crops we produce are distributed within 50 miles of the farm, feeding community supported agriculture (CSA) members, folks at the Boulder County Farmers' Markets, local restaurants and elders in need.
Here at Cure Organic Farm we encourage the community to come and join us in the fields. Agriculture is about connecting the community with its local food sources. Educational classes and tours of the farm can be scheduled. Volunteer opportunities are also available.
We are land stewards, employing organic and biodynamic methods.
We are committed to educating future farmers and others who want to develop a relationship with the land.
We foster a culture of giving, by providing nourishment and our time to those in need.

Margauex grew up on a rice, almond and cattle farm in Northern California. She can trace her family full of farmers back to the 1700's. Needless to say, it's in her DNA. At a young age, she started riding horses and had bottle calves in her backyard. She then joined 4-H and later the Future Farmers of America in highschool, holding officer titles, including FFA president. Margauex showed hogs from California to Kentucky, later branching out to sheep and cattle. Growing up in the livestock industry taught her the importance of free range, sustainable livestock. When she's not being chased by pigs or trying to wrangle up chickens, you can find her home with her two dogs eating peaches and tootsie rolls.

John Ellis is our historical adviser, also known as our non-resident geezer. He remembers when our land was farmed by Mr. Pancost using horses in the 1960's, one of the last farms in the area to use horses. His parents built our farmhouse when he was in high school and he moved our barn and another building from the Pancost homestead, where our farm store is now. John farms 140 acres in Boulder County, growing hay, pumpkins, wheat and squash using organic methods. He also owns a 6 acre peach orchard in Palisade which is managed by our fruit share partners, Rancho Durazno. Besides farming, John makes compost for his farms and for his customers at the Boulder Farmers Market.
