Resort adds organic farm

Blue Mountain Resort has put in an organic farm, named Blue Star Farms.

Barb Green, president of Blue Mountain Resort, said they’ve put in a high tunnel and a greenhouse, and are planning 2 to 3 acres of greens to be used in the resort’s Slopeside Pub & Grill Restaurant for farm-to-table.

She said the resort bought the farm next door to them and wanted to maintain its farm look.

“It’s KSL (Resorts) and our opinion that it’s such a beautiful property, that we want to try to keep it intact,” Green said. “I’ve always been a big believer that we should be self-sustaining, environmentally conscious. This is another way to do that.”

Green said they started plantings at Blue Star Farms Monday.
