How we are growing:

The Flatirons Young Farmers Coalition was founded in the fall of 2016. Since then, our chapter has continued to grow and is increasingly impactful within the farming community of the Flatirons region.

 

  • Our chapter has initiated specific local and state level policy changes: 

    • We have a growing relationship with the City of Boulder's Open Space and Mountain Parks and Boulder County's Parks and Open Space.

    • We have established a warm relationship with Joe Neguse. 

    • We have hosted two farm tours with Congressman Neguse and with Congressman Kelly Armstrong (ND).

    • Through these relationships, FYFC helped to inspire the Study on Improving Our Lands (SOIL) Act.

  • FYFC has hosted a farm-to-table dinner with over 50 farmer attendees.

  • Our annual Hoe Down fundraiser has hosted over 500 total attendees and has raised over $7,500 to fund chapter operations and special events.

  • Our chapter has 35 active members and currently reaches close to 400 members within our community on a routine basis.

  • FYFC has the 5th most active membership (out of 46 across the nation) with the National Young Farmers Coalition’s membership and resources.

  • Despite being a young organization, the Flatirons Chapter of NYFC is 1 of only 10 chapters across the nation with a paid coordinator position. Our Chapter Coordinator began in May, 2020 and has helped establish our membership and chapter resources.

  • FYFC has helped many of our members transition from being staff on farms to owning their very own farms! The following local farmers have started their own farms since FYFC’s start:​​

    • Krisan Christainson of Wild Wellspring

    • Danny Dunlap and Annaliese Dankers of Bluebird Sky Farmstead
