Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms is a 700-acre nature preserve and historic working farm located along the banks of Deer Creek in southern Jefferson County.
The Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA) at Chatfield Farms is the cornerstone of the Gardens' Urban Food Initiatives, growing seven acres of vegetables, flowers and fruit for subscribers (shareholders) and farm stands.
Our institutional mission of connecting people with plants is continued by fostering a resilient farm ecosystem by building soil health, restoring the creek and native grasslands, and by creating a community centered around food and nature. We have an educational program for veterans who want to learn about small-scale farming and work alongside our farm team each season.

As the effects of climate change continue to cause damage to the environment and to vulnerable populations, it is more important than ever to be mindful of our farming practices. Chatfield Farms is implementing regenerative farming practices that focus on healthy ecosystems all the way from the soil, beneficial insects, animals, water conservation, tiling and more.
