About Hatcher Farm

The Hatcher Farm was originally homesteaded by another family (Messerschmidts) in the early 1900’s, and had been owned and cared for by yet another family since the late 30’s, in the mountains of Colorado. Almost fifty years ago, it came into our family.

The Hatcher Farm remains the the family, now going into the second generation.

There is evidence that the farm raised potatoes, a crop that was big in the valley. The pasture continues to grow lush grass.

Going forward, we hope to move into some crops like quinoa and other produce for local markets in the Vail Valley.
