Kitchen and Gardens

We grow everything from Asparagus to Zucchini.

At 7K Ranch we raise a traditional garden producing an abundance of fresh, zone-hardy fruits and vegetables.

7K Seed Bank

At an elevation of approximately 4,000 feet, annual temperature swings from -35c to +35c and a very short growing season you would think it almost impossible to cultivate such a productive garden.

We’ve being doing this a long time and the secret to our success is called Diane. Without Diane there would be no garden. Diane has been managing the 1.5 acre garden since 2007 and that commitment is visible in the wide variety of fruits and vegetables we produce.

Any produce that doesn’t make it to our friends, family and customer’s tables is most welcomed by the livestock and chickens that call 7K home.

With such an amazing selection of fresh, organic produce at our fingertips, it’s no surprise that there is always a lot of excitement in the 7K kitchen.

Over the years we’ve hosted many events, both public and private. The talented chefs who have prepared meals in our kitchen love to pick straight from the garden and this really speaks to our plough-to-plate philosophy.

Not-so-modern machinery: One thing you’ll notice at 7K is how much is done the old-fashioned way.
