Farm Staff

This is our farmer family at Chatfield...We are updating this page to reflect our new staff so check back real soon to see our new additions!

Josie Hart  - Manager of Farm Programs

Josie manages the farm programming for Chatfield - which includes a CSA, Farmstand outreach and Veterans educational program. Josie is inspired to connect people with the farm, especially at CSA distributions and markets--which are like a weekly mini-celebration of fresh food. From recipes to new tomato varieties to exotic herbs, all things grown at Chatfield contribute to a delicious season each time. Josie produces the flowers for a CSA share, markets and events held onsite. Beauty from nature is just as vital as food!



Royce Hale - Farm Education Coordinator
Royce owns and operates Guffarmery, an urban farm in Denver. He graduated from the Veterans to Farmers Program at Chatfield in 2017 and is now a full time educator for our veterans and other students of farming. Royce also teaches workshops on homesteading topics such as fermentation, baking and brewing. After teaching in public schools for many years, Royce’s diverse experience in military, agriculture and education is a perfect fit for our program.
