High Altitude Rhubarb is a small, organic, pick-your-own farm in Black Forest, Colorado. We've been in business since 2008 selling fresh, organic rhubarb, unfiltered Colorado honey, organic rhubarb plants and organic rhubarb seeds of various varieties, rhubarb cookbooks and organic horseradish plants/roots. Our offerings include heirloom/heritage varieties of both rhubarb and horseradish. All products are available for purchase during the harvest except for plants. Plantsgenerally sell out well in advance of the harvest though most people pay in advance and pick them up at the harvest.
Please place mail orders via email (See Contact Us to send email). We ship both fresh rhubarb and rhubarb and horseradish plants. 20lb. minimum for mail order fresh rhubarb. Unconditional money-back guarantee on all our products. No minimum on plant orders.
The harvest is normally the first weekend in June and we now sell out of rhubarb that weekend! There is seldom a second harvest as hot weather tends to ruin the flavor. Plants sell to people on the plant list well before the harvest even begins. Please join that plant list if you wish the option of buying plants, which normally go on sale in April/May.
Our primary crop is fresh, organic rhubarb.Harvest Weekendis a big party. We normally offer samplings of rhubarb dishes and there are always picnic facilities and complimentary beverages and cold water. Our heirloom(2) Victoria plants are phenomenal in taste and size. They don't need to be peeled before cooking and require relatively little sweetening. Colorado Red is a proprietary variety unique to our farm and capable of adding considerable red color to rhubarb dishes. We also have Turkish, Canada Red and a score of other varieties in small numbers.
Bring your family and friends and join the harvest party. Contact us to join our harvest email interest list and keep up-to-date on harvest plans and product availability. (We don't spam or offer your email to others.)
