About Mountain Flower Goat Dairy
Mountain Flower Goat Dairy is a different kind of dairy. We are a community-supported dairy and urban farm resource center with four interrelated goals:
- To provide intergenerational, com
munity-engagement opportunities by offering educational workshops and programs, farm-to-school projects, field trips and tours; animal husbandry classes, handcrafted cheese making workshops, safe food-handling courses; beginning urban-farmer trainings and resources; pack-goat opportunities; fiber demonstrations and a formal farm apprenticeship program.
- To produce high-quality, hormone-free, humanely produced, local goatdairy productsfor use by community members and in our education programs.
- To support the 2011 Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan’s long-term goal of “encouraging the preservation and sustainable use of agricultural lands as a current and renewable source of food and feed and for their contribution to cultural, environmental and economic diversity.” It is our long-term vision to collaborate with the landowners, the City, our neighbors, nonprofits, and other stakeholders in an effort to permanently protect the last 25-acres of working community farmland in the Boulder City limits from subdivision and development.
- To serve as a platform for broader farm and food systems policy change by providing a model of a working urban farm and engaged citizenship where we can go beyond everyday food choices to create a healthier and more transparent agricultural system by participating in and advocating for more sustainable food system.
