Meet Joseph & A.C.!

We bought Color Ridge Farm in July 2021–just two months after our magical wedding. Neither of us EVER thought we would end up in a place like Wayne County, Utah! Yet, the moment we came here, we could feel something special; we could sense the land calling and inviting us to make it our home. Building a regenerative micro-farm has felt like a beautiful calling; and we love using our farm as a way to give back and honor the land and support our beautiful community!

About Our Farm

It is amazing how much you can do on just one acre of land! When applying sound permaculture principles and mindful planning, a small farm can provide such an abundance of life, biodiversity, and incredible, nutrient-dense food! At Color Ridge Farm, we strive to implement regenerative practices that give back to the land, rejuvenate soil health, and produce nutrient-dense food and herbs that are not just healthy, but healing.

Ice Creamery

Our ice creamery opened July 1, 2022 in Torrey, Utah, right next to the Wild Rabbit Café and Shooke Coffee Roasters! We love making good ice cream from a simple base of ingredients and using as many locally-grown and produced ingredients as possible!

Orchard

Our 20-tree orchard is nearly 30 years old, and the trees are all children of the orchard trees in Capitol Reef National Park! Most of the trees are apple (which grow well here in Wayne County), but we also have plum, apricot, and cherry trees (although our late spring frosts can often prevent stone fruit harvest).

Gardens

We grow tons of produce, flowers, and herbs in our large garden space, as well as our greenhouse! In fact, we’re soon building a second greenhouse to accommodate winter growing options! Regenerative gardening practices include not tilling the soil or using harmful herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides. We believe if we take good care of the soil and all of the micro-organisms that call it home, they will take good care of us by contributing important nutrients and life to our foods and herbs!

Compost &
Vermiculture

Composting is a HUGE part of regenerative farming and permaculture! We strive for making as little waste as possible, and composting is a great way to help add to that goal! Not only do we use traditional composting methods, but we also have taken composting to the next level by introducing vermiculture (composting with the help of worms) to our farm! Vermiculture expedites the composting process and yields even more nutrient-dense soil to add back into our orchard and gardens.

Chickens & Eggs

Color Ridge is home to 15 beautiful free-range, egg-laying ladies! Yes, they ALL have names, and they lay a beautiful assortment of colorful eggs! Not only do they provide eggs, though, they also play an integral role in our permaculture system by keep insects and bugs in balance, and aerating soil in the orchard by scratching through livestock poo (allowing it decompose into the soil more quickly and effectively)!

Fermentation &
Food Processing

We love working to use the things we grow and turn them into amazing, nutritious foods! At Color Ridge, we regularly make kefir and kombucha, and in the fall, we can various foods and ferment others like sauerkraut. We are excited to offer more of these value-added food products to our customers!

History

Photo taken in the 1920's of our farmhouse that was built in 1911 with two children sitting on the hood of a really old car.

Our farmhouse was built in 1911 by the Baker family! They were among the first White settlers of Bicknell, Utah. The house has had a number of owners over the years, as well as several additions, along with external and interior renovations! Our house has a lot of character, and we love it so much! We like think that it picked us to be its present occupants!

Don't just take our word for it

This ice cream shop was amazing and totally succeeded my expectations. The flavor options are top notch. I got a bowl with vanilla, churro and chai latte. My daughter got the lavender honey with chai. All of the flavors I tasted were so good. The ice cream is thick and high quality! I wish we had an ice cream shop like this near where I live. Super nice service and cute decor. I 100% recommend this place and will for sure be coming back.

"Some of the very BEST ice cream we’ve ever had. We stopped here on a whim while passing through Utah’s national parks and were absolutely thrilled. We got a flight to sample some flavors and then ordered a shake of our favorite — and it was a tough call! The owners were so kind and the entire experience was perfect."

"Spent 2 days in Torrey while visiting Capital Reef. This is a gem in the small town. Best ice cream ever! The service was great, the place was so stylish and the ice cream was amazing. I had the coffee ice cream-best ever! My guy had the chocolate and loved it. They have flights of ice cream which is a great way to try more than one flavor! The price was also so reasonable. If you are near Torrey, you have to stop in!!"

"Beautiful shop with friendly owners and a large array of unique and delicious ice cream. The best part is, they have flights!! No need to worry about picking just one, you can get a flight of 3 or up to 5 flavors! My personal favorite was the samoas cookie flavor. Their milkshakes are also amazing with a super cool mason jar style glass. I highly recommend stopping if you are in the area."

"We tried just about every flavor available in a flight and enjoyed them all. Favorites included lemon poppyseed, mojito, and champagne sorbet. Looking forward to sampling birthday cake, cookies and cream, peanut butter, and more lemon poppy seed at home. Highly recommend! Hope they continue the flights! Great way to sample flavors when you can’t decide on just one."

"What an adorable (and delicious!) ice cream shop!!! In an area with such a limited amount of food options (let alone dessert) this place was a total standout. Ice cream flights (!!! Genius!) in amazing flavors and lovely, personal service. Stop in, you won’t be disappointed!"

"This is best ice cream west of New York city! Their ice cream is very flavorful and yet subtle and delicious! They have regular flavors but the ones they developed are the best; Juniper, Birthday Cake, Lemon Poppy seed, Mountain Mint, and best of all Lavender Honey! They offer a fun way to get to try the array of unique flavors, 3 to 5 ice creams in a flight. And then you can buy a container of your favorites. Their is also a lovely patio to enjoy your ice cream on. Don't miss Color Ridge Creamery when in Torrey!!"
