Blue Mountain Biodynamic Farms is a highly diversified, mixed farm consisting of 160 acres of prairie/aspen parkland in the low foothills of the Rocky Mountains, about 75 kms. north-northwest of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Blue Mountain is currently operated by Kris and his wife, Tamara. The farm's 110 cultivated acres produce cereal and legume crops, forage, vegetables and culinary herbs, in addition to raising poultry and hogs. 35 acres are maintained as native grassland/pasture. Products are sold directly to consumers through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) project and also available through various retail stores, home delivery services and select restaurants in the Calgary, Airdrie and Canmore area. The physical work involved in striving to produce food without being completely reliant on fossil fuel energy inputs is provided by Kris and Tamara, season long apprentices and community volunteers.
