When you think of Colorado, you think of mountains, clear blue skies, skiing, hiking, camping, fly fishing and, since 2012, legal marijuana. Despite the easy jokes about high altitude stoners, legal weed and other products are important parts of the Colorado economy and culture. There’s also so much more to legal cannabis than getting high.

One great example is Needle Rock Farms in Crawford, CO. Needle Rock is a large scale grow operation, a premium organic CBD hemp company which grows and produces the finest organic CBD products for health and wellness. They specialize in high CBD – low THC strains, clones, oils, and raw botanical material. Products include balms, tinctures, tablets and even CBD oils for pets.

Colorado Yurts are part of Needle Rock Meditation Sanctuary + Retreat Center, which hosts retreats and events on the farm.  Earlier this year, Needle Rock Farm was gearing up for a big international meditation retreat in early May. Everyone on the ranch worked extra hard getting the decks and build site ready… and the yurts were pitched 5 days before the event! It all happened quickly and retreat participants were amazed at how much the yurts added to the meditation center! Day to day, the 30’ yurt is used for yoga, meditation and group gatherings, while the 16’ yurt is a lovely place for guests to sleep.

Julia Desmond, owner and founder of Needle Rock Farms is thrilled with the addition of the yurts. She says, “We LOVE our Colorado Yurts. Everybody likes the look and the feel of the yurts. Our decorations are Asian-Zen inspired – the perfect complement to our international meditation + CBD retreat center.”

She adds, “When we aren’t using our yurts for our retreats, they make a great family gathering place, especially for the holidays. We’re in the process of adding wood-burning stoves to extend their use through the winter months.”

Colorado Yurt Company worked with Needle Rock to select the appropriate options for their yurts, then our crew arrived on site to pitch them. Julia adds, “We chose Colorado Yurt Company because they are the best yurt company available. They came highly recommended and are local! Their staff is very knowledgeable and helped me every step of the way. From the first phone call to the final pitching details, Colorado Yurt Company was wonderful to work with.”

Needle Rock Farms is a leader in a growing industry, making quality products and offering an exceptional spiritual experience to their guests. We’re happy to be a part of this wonderful place, and look forward to their expansion plans in 2019 (more yurts!).
