Celebrating tradition and embracing change through culturally-responsible commerce.
We lease to, support, and promote our business tenants in the food, drink, and retail industries. Our mission is to nurture a community space in the downtown Timnath area for our next-door neighbors, other businesses, and the greater Northern Colorado area.
As the CF&G, we embrace our cultural responsibility to cultivate community through commerce with great integrity, collaboration, and positivity.
Integrity- The CF&G cultivates commerce in a culturally-responsible way by supporting local, artisan, and boutique businesses as they start up and grow. We do so by redefining the commercial property Landlord-Tenant relationship through a business model of shared prosperity, unconventional thinking, and open communication.
Collaboration – We support our community by providing a fusion space where all are welcome, in collaboration with the CF&G and its partner-tenant businesses, to celebrate tradition and engage in change. Through inter-business synergy and investment, the CF&G supports creative commerce as a catalyst for social and cultural development.
Positivity – The CF&G strives to share the story of Timnath as a uniquely Colorado town, with roots in local, agricultural, and artisanal commerce stretching backwards and forwards through the centuries. While honoring the traditions of those who have journeyed before us, we empower each other in our responsibility to advance as a unique and sustainable community.
A letter from the manager
Throughout the reconstruction of the Colorado Feed & Grain, I assumed the responsibility for construction management while working full time in fulfilling my own dream to teach young minds. As the CF&G building is in transition from its reconstruction phase into its stage as a start-up business – and as I have the familial responsibility to bring to fruition a building and business model supported by hard work and dedication – in May 2017, I made the official (and terrifying) switch from ‘full-time first grade teacher’ to ‘full-time entrepreneur.’ My husband (a music teacher), my parents (a programmer and an occupational therapist), and myself are now investing in a business model that will reinvest in the people and community who have contributed so much to our shared experience.
Northern Colorado born and raised, this is my home and I am truly energized by the heartbeat of Downtown Timnath and its residents. It is the place my husband, my cat and I spend our afternoons, enjoy our evenings, and delight in our weekends. Working every day to revive this building and revitalize downtown will be a tireless effort of which I am proud to be a part. Thank you for your support and patience, and I look forward to the opportunities and shared experiences that the future will bring!
