For generations the Arapaho, Cheyenne and Ute Indians flourished on these eastern plains where massive herds of buffalo roamed. French trappers in the 1830’s; the Overland Stage in the 1860’s; and Westward moving settlers in the 1870’s. The fertile soil and brilliant sunshine attracted farmers who focused on wheat and sugar beets at the turn of the century.
Sheep and cattle were raised as the these industries grew and more people began to arrive in Northern Colorado. Farmers rotated corn, soybeans, and alfalfa and took them to Fort Collins for sale and distribution.
Preserving the history and traditions of Colorado’s past, Belmont Farms embodies the American dream for families to own a piece of land and watch their children grow in a peaceful rural setting. We invite you to take part and enjoy this “true sense of place” at Belmont Farms.
