Our Story & Future
Tender Care Farm is a small, Black-stewarded vegetable farm in Boulder, CO. Tender Care Farm stewards half an acre and large greenhouse. We envision a future on the land where new farmers can learn with grace, and where we can live in a sweet balance with the Earth.
The farm was established in October 2022.
The Garlicorn Farmer Cooperative is a group of farmers of color
with independent farms working collectively.

2023 Foods & Plants
We're stewarding a half acre of land to create a harmonious blend of specialty crops and flowers. In season, you'll find our fresh produce and foods for sale at Jacob Springs Farm.
Three Sisters Garden
We're growing sweet sorghum, pole beans, and cucumbers in the three sisters portion of our garden. Golden Red Amarynth is a fourth sister to add some color and encourage cucumber beetles to eat it, and not our cucs!
In the fall, we'll have delicious batches of sorghum syrup for sale.
We're growing pickling cucumbers, cabbage, pole beans, collards, and beets. In season, you'll find our pickled products at Jacob Springs Farm. We'll let you know here what we've got ready!
When we grow vegetables, we ask a lot of the land. In return, we think it's important to give back. So around our garden you'll find these species native to our area:
Western White Yarrow
Blue Mist Penstemon
