Honey Bear


Pumpkin Patch Honey – made with honey produced by the bees that reside and work at Tigges Farm.  If you are looking for local honey this is it!  If it says “Pumpkin Patch” honey it is Tigges Farm honey. It is available in 1 lb bottles only and as long as supply lasts.  Then we will stock up with honey produced in Northern Colorado.

Sahuaro Dip
Sahuaro Salsa, Dip & Queso Mix – made with Sahuaro chiles grown at the farm. Tortilla chips jump in your grocery cart in hopes they get to be dipped and eaten.  As one customer said, “Dang! That’s Good!” and that is the only way I can describe it!” We make as much as we have chile to dry at the end of the season and when it is gone, it is gone until we open August 1 the next year.   Some customers were creative with it too.  They used it as flavoring in a Chicken Casserole and had rave reviews.  Unfortunately when she came back for a winter supply it was all gone for the season.

Barn Quilt Gallery

What is a Barn Quilt?   Well, it started in the mid-west when two sisters bought a farm.  One sister said, "That barn is the ugliest barn I have ever seen."  The other sister took that statement to task and painted a traditional quilt block on two 4'x 8' pieces of plywood to make an 8'x8' square.  Mounted against the old barn wood, the quilt block took on a life of its own and suddenly turned that barn into a local tourist attraction. 

Then barn quilt blocks (based on actual quilt blocks) started popping up all over.  It wasn't long and barn quilts were on the tour bus route. 

Farm artist, Kathy Rickart and Gale Loeffler, inspired by the lore of barn quilts began painting their own barn quilts.  Each barn quilt shares a bit of Tigges Farm history.  

But.....for 2017, please excuse us if the first four barn quilt pictures below are missing.  The extended spring full week rain soaked behind the four with the most exposure to the direction of the rain and were ruined.  It might take a year to repaint them.

Tumbling Roasted Chile Quilt Block
This is an adaptation of the "Indian Puzzle Quilt Block."  Since the best chilies are grown and roasted at Tigges Farm, it just seemed like one block should represent chiles tumbling as they are fire roasted.   It is a twist on the traditional block.

The Country Farm
Tigges Farm was established in 1936 by Phillip and Lucy Tigges when they made their home in Colorado.  The farm has been in the family for 3 generations.   The light green is the field being planted with the faith of a farmer.  The dark green is the summer and growing plants.  The orange, red and yellow is the fall harvest - God's abundant blessings.

Artist - Kathy Rickart, 2014

 

 

 

The Square Dance
This block celebrated the Official State Dance of Colorado - the Square Dance.  Both Kathy Rickart and Gale Loeffler were dancers on the Aggie Haylofter Exhibition teams while attending Colorado State University.  Gale was also a Central City, Colorado Exhibition Dancer.  It shows the bright colors of the outfits and intricate pattern of the dance - an art set to music. 

Artist - Gale Loeffler - 2015

 

 

The County Fair
Ken Tigges, Gale Loeffler and Kathy Rickart all were 10 Year 4-H Members of Weld County.  Each year they exhibited at the Weld County Fair as a part of completing their 4-H projects.  This block represents the rosette ribbons that are awarded during County Fairs to Grand Champions.  Grandchildren have also participated in country fairs in Colorado and won their share of ribbons too.

Artist - Gale Loeffler - 2015

 

 

Fishing
This block pattern was clipped form the Denver Post around 60 years ago.  Tigges Farm ancestors helped bring water to this area and family members have served on the Whitney Irrigation Ditch Board for decades.  Robert Tigges & Ken Tigges, both served terms as President.

Fishing can be found along Cache La Poudre River than runs along the southern border of the farm.

Schoolhouse

This block is a memory block.  It is in memory of Robert and Mary Tigges, 2nd generation owners of the farm.  The Schoolhouse block was a favorite of Robert Tigges and all three Tigges kids, Ken, Gale and Kathy attended the red brick schoolhouse known as Bracewell School.  The spools of thread surrounding the schoolhouse depict the seamstress skills of Mary Tigges.  She made garments for her children, taught them and many people in the community how to sew.
