WELCOME to two bears farm

Open since January 13, 2017, Two Bears Farm is a holistic, Eco-friendly working farm and retreat center just north of Durango on the east Animas River.  Come join us for an afternoon or a week.  With an orchard of over 80 apple trees and some fine river front fishing, Two Bears is the perfect place to relax, re-imagine and refine.  Stay at our well appointed guest house (sleeps eight), take a workshop or spend some time with the animals. 


A work in progress – what farm isn’t? We have 30 raised beds, tilled gardens, a greenhouse and over 100 fruit trees. The majority of which are 75 year old heirloom apples.

Come stay at the farm!  Our Guest House is less than 50 yards from the river.  The Guest House sleeps eight with three bedrooms and a wood stove.  Enjoy your coffee in the morning as the sun comes up over the red cliffs or pop into town for dinner.
