Telluride Farmers' Market Features James Ranch
[click to hear Dan James on cheese and more]
One of the many smiling faces we look forward to seeing each week belongs to Dan James of the James Ranch, located ten miles north of Durango in the Animas River Valley.
As with other organic farms, the James Ranch does not use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, added hormones, or feed animal by-products in raising the food it sells. And the 450 acres of high altitude pastures is home to beef cattle, milk cows, a spruce nursery, organic vegetables, a flower garden, and an artisan cheese operation run by Dan and Becca James.
Full disclosure: When it comes to good cheese, Clint and I may be the Wallace and Grommit of Telluride. We are big enthusiasts – although Wensleydale is not “it” for us. It is whatever Dan has on hand.
