Set among the irrigated agricultural fields of the North Fork of the Gunnison River Zepyhros Farm is a small family run operation that has been featured in the New York Times and GQ magazine for their outstanding produce and fresh cut flowers. The property features an orchard and Russian olive grove that surely host migrants during the spring and fall. Topographical features of the farm include several gulleys that offer some shrub cover on the banks and cattails in the bottom and would make for interesting exploration. Also on the property are several small ponds which provide safe harbor for waterfowl and waterbirds such as Great Blue Herons.
