Lance and Anna Hanson of Jack Rabbit Hill, a diversified farm located in Western Colorado's North Fork Valley, near the town of Hotchkiss. Their 70 acre property grows 18 acres of grapes, 11 acres of hops, sheep, cows and chickens (and some dogs). They make vineyard-driven wines (Jack Rabbit Hill Wines), custom-blended keg wines for restaurants (WineTapistry), craft spirits (Peak Spirits, CapRock, BeerCraftWhiskey) and hard cider (New Avalon Cider). As they say "when it comes to making tasty products they have their noses in the dirt as much as the glass, because all great food starts with clean growing practices!" They started out in 2000 as a certified organic farm and got into biodynamic practices in 2006, with Demeter certification in 2008. In 2015 we invited Lance to be on a panel at the 5th Annual Soil Health Conference for holistic grazing practices. During his time at the conference Lance and Anna learned new practices and began using cover crop mixes in their grape vines and hops.
