Color Ridge Farm, a small regenerative farm located in Bicknell, Utah (ancestral lands of the Núuchi-u [Ute] and Nuwuvi [Southern Paiute] peoples), is queer-owned and stewarded by farming husbands, Joseph Shumway and A.C. Ivory.
The farm sits on just over one acre of land and is home to 3 male alpacas, 15 laying hens, broiler chickens, and (during the growing season) over 100 varieties (we lost count) of intentionally-cultivated vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs, grasses, and trees!
Color Ridge Farm is dedicated to serving the lands and people of Wayne County, Utah by reclaiming soil health and biodiversity in the local ecology; advocating for holistic land stewardship and protection; nourishing camaraderie in the community; offering education and modeling of regenerative farming; and providing nutrient-dense foods and herbal medicines that are harvested with intention and reciprocity.
At Color Ridge, we strive to farm with a holistic approach by focusing on regenerating more life—human, plant, animal, microbiology, community, etc. It’s all interconnected and important. We believe that healthy land and soil leads to thriving people and communities. To help us accomplish this, we enlist the principles of Regenerative Agriculture.
