Scott and Jessica Washkowiak on the Field to Fork farm in Palisade, Colorado.

Field To Fork CSA began in the winter of 2011 by Scott and Jessica Washkowiak. Their passion for farming had been growing as they had spent the previous four years farming on organic produce farms in California and Colorado. Their decisions to start the Field To Fork CSA in Mesa County Colorado continued their career and life in farming that they wanted. 

By the Spring of 2012 they had a half-acre garden in Palisade, Colorado. Very quickly they started a small CSA program that provided 30 families in Mesa County with fresh produce weekly. Field to Fork also was serving the local community by selling their fresh produce at farmers markets.  "We never wanted to be a carrot farm or a spinach farm," they share, "We wanted a farm with healthy diverse crops that fed people in our community." And that is what they have.

In the summer of 2014, a piece of land was purchased, neighboring where they first started the CSA program and were able to provide a permanent home for Field To Fork. This land gave the farm much more room to grow.

In just five years, Field To Fork has grown from a small market garden to four acres of orchard fruits and 11 acres of annual fruits and vegetables. The CSA program has grown and is now offered to 100 families in Mesa County. A farm stand is also open to the general public on Sundays. "We are working hard to bring quality organic produce to more members of the Mesa County Community." Additionally, in 2017, Field to Fork is developing a wholesale distribution for grocery stores and wholesale buyers as well as participating in growing crops for the Mesa County School District.

Field to Fork farm stand is open

Tuesday-Friday 3-dusk Saturday and Sunday 10am-dusk.
