Rainbow Springs Farms is a “jack of all trades” when it comes to agriculture. It is primarily a fish farm, producing trout for local markets and restaurants, but it also has greenhouses that grow food crops and hemp. The hemp is produced for its CBD, as Rainbow Springs Farms strives to earn its share of the flourishing medicinal CBD market.
The trout produced at Rainbow Springs Farms are hatched in the farm and nurtured sustainably in water drawn from an underground well. Tilapia are also raised here and much of the waste produced by these fish is used as plant fertilizer.
Along with its fish production, Rainbow Springs Farms operates veterinary services, and grows herbs, strawberries, lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers. These services and products are offered to locals and businesses in Durango, Colorado, where Rainbow Springs Farms is based.
The company’s hemp/CBD production seems to be a relatively new addition. It is registered with the Colorado Department of Agriculture and states that its goal is to cultivate CBD-rich varietals for the medicinal marketplace.
There isn’t a great deal of information on this company’s hemp growth or CBD production, possibly because it’s still in the early stages of development and awaiting its first crops. It also seems to be a locally focused company, one that sells most of its products to local businesses and focuses primarily on the city of Durango.
For more information, you can find Rainbow Springs Farms at 378 Lyman Lane, Durango, Colorado, 81303, but please note that this is a private facility and you can’t simply walk in and explore!
