The Bartels Farm

3424 E Douglas Rd
Fort Collins, CO 80521


The Bartels Farm is a family owned and operated farm. Established in 1905, the Bartels Farm started off as a sheep farm operated by Frank Bartels and his father Clyde Bartels. Frank and his three sisters owned six or more farms along the front range. Frank only farmed the land up north where the farm is today which consist mainly of sugarbeets, corn, hay, and barley. Frank's only child, Duane, took over the farm. Duane grew his own feed for his animals such as corn and hay along with the sugarbeets. He also harvested barley for Coors and cucumbers for the Dreher Pickle Factory. Duane and his son Doug owned a hog farm to replace the sheep. They also rented their feed lots to cattle ranchers to board cattle. Today the Bartels Farm is operated by Doug and his son Shawn. We still grow corn, hay, wheat and barley but are known for our beautiful pumpkin patch and vegetable garden. The farm still buys and sells farm animals as well as renting out land. The Bartels Farm is proud to be going on its sixth generation of farming. Over the years times have changed and the farm had to adapt to modern time and conditions to keep the family farm operating. Please stop by for some fresh produce. You may even pick straight from the garden by scheduling it with Nancy. We thank you for supporting your local farmers!
