Butterfly Outpost is a small flower farm on the western slope of Colorado that specializes in growing romantic, fragrant, heirloom cut flowers and foliage. The well-draining soil, sunny days and cool nights of this high desert region create a favorable climate for growing these seasonal field cut flowers.
The farm has many old-fashioned favorites like zinnias, dahlias, lisianthus, snapdragons, cosmos, sweet peas, sunflowers and many more. We also have perennials such as lavender, roses and peonies.
Our philosophy is one of working with, rather than against nature. Harmony with nature is possible only if we abandon the idea of superiority over the natural world. At Butterfly Outpost, a regenerative agricultural system has been developed and we grow a variety of fruit and nut trees, rare heirloom vegetables, and herbs and flowers. One-third of the land is set aside for the native residents including deer, bobcats, quail and great horned owls, as well as bees, butterflies and other insects.
