Wild Wick's Farm
10200 W. 16th Ave. Lakewood, CO


The Wild Wick's, Doug and Jamie, run a homestead in Lakewood, Colorado on 1/3 of an acre. They keep chickens, bees and have a wide-range of vegetables and fruit available to grow in their climate. A passive solar greenhouse and hoop houses allow them to extend their season and provide their community with local produce for 8 months out of the year. 

Jamie, a Colorado-Native, has farmed at the Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield for the past 5 seasons as an assistant grower for a 250 member CSA. For the past three years she has run a training program at Chatfield for military veterans that are interested in learning to farm and grow food. If there is one thing she loves more than farming, it is teaching others to farm. By running her own homestead and working at a 6-acre farm, she has developed skills for vegetable production and farm management.

Doug grew up in Alaska hunting, fishing, skiing and camping. He moved to Colorado in 2003 to get his engineering degree at the School of Mines, but after graduation and working as a mechanical engineer for two years he decided to pursue a different life/career. He now works for the City of Lakewood Parks Department and enjoys being outside instead in front of a computer.
