Fozzie’s Farm, located in the wide open farm country of Montezuma County in southwestern Colorado, offers guests a taste of the rural lifestyle that has inspired people to call this place home for over 10,000 years. From the prehistoric Archaic and Ancestral Puebloan cultures, to the bands of Ute Indians, to the early homesteaders and current farmers and ranchers, this landscape draws people in and leaves a lasting mark.
The 83 acres belongs to Montezuma Land Conservancy and is protected forever with a conservation easement. The working farm and ranch provides visitors with opportunities to learn more about innovative farming practices, such as holistic livestock grazing, using cover crops to build soil health, precision irrigation, creating habitat for wildlife and pollinators, and integrated weed management. Guests will also enjoy the stunning views of Mesa Verde National Park, Sleeping Ute Mountain, the San Juan Mountains, and the nearby Canyons of the Ancients National Monument. Come connect to the land, meet its stewards, and leave inspired.”
