Chet & Kristy Anderson
Chet and Kristy Anderson are long established local growers with over 30 years of experience on their Farm.

After 20 years, Chet and Kristy expanded their focus to ornamentals and flowers and recently began growing succulents. They offer fun and interesting selections of succulents in a wide array of sizes, garden combinations and varieties.
As the preeminent local producers of ornamentals, sustainably grown herb plants, hanging baskets, succulents and cut flowers; you can find their beautiful products throughout the region at Whole Foods and Lucky’s. On Saturdays from April to November you will find The Fresh Herb Co. at the Boulder Farmer’s Market and the Denver Union Station Farmer’s Market from June until October.

Kristy is the Past President of the Boulder Farmer’s Market Board of Directors and was instrumental in leading the focused expansion of the Growers Only market model in Boulder County and Denver Union Station.
Belle Anderson has been an important part of The Fresh Herb Co.’s history. Many customers at the Boulder Farmer’s Market call her “the flower lady”. Since the beginning in 1987, she has been a constant presence and loyal supporter, rain or shine.
Although, you don’t see her at the market these days, she sends her regards to all their amazing customers and she hopes that you are enjoying all the beautiful herbs and flowers that her son continues to grow.
