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.

Paul Cure has had an intimate relationship with dirt since he married Anne in 2001. One of his passions on the farm is raising ducks. He is still searching seed catalogs to find the elusive cappuccino seed. His favorite veggie is prosciutto.

Brenna Regan the mountains were callin' her name, so Brenna packed her bags and moved to Boulder in search of a change of scenery. She grew up in Connecticut where she studied sociology and environmental justice at UConn. Through her coursework and campus activism she developed a passion for sustainable living. After spending a year at a farm-to-table restaurant post-grad, she had the desire to leave the table and work on the farm. Once she found the good people at Cure, it all fell into place! She's pumped to be a part of the team this season to learn all the technicalities of organic farming - and to exponentially improve her skills in the game of Contact.
Gracie Nichols was born and raised in Aspen, Colorado and is a graduate of CU Boulder (go Buffs!). Growing up, her parents and grandparents all had gardens and greenhouses. Additionally, her dad was a chef at one point--so she fell in love with love with food at a young age! She has worked at The Kitchen, a farm-to-table restaurant in Boulder that buys produce from Cure Organic Farm. It was just a short hop, skip and a jump to her job at Cure. She is most excited about living on the farm in a yurt. Hopefully the chickens won't be too loud!
Ryan Curran was born and raised in Swarthmore, PA, just outside the city of brotherly love. He went on to study at Penn State and by the end of his time knew he wanted to be involved with farming. After a small stint at a local food coop he spent a season working at a farm in northern Connecticut. He's excited to be part of the wonderful, hard working crew at Cure. He loves to read, cook and play ultimate.
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.
