Darrell Cook

March 1, 1954 – Oct 22, 2014
Darrell Cook grew up in Fairbury, NE, on his father’s and grandfather’s farm. He attended school in a one-room schoolhouse, where he was the only student until his brothers were old enough to join him. He graduated from Fairbury High School (go Jeffs!) and went to the University of Nebraska at Curtis. He graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Agriculture.
He always wanted to live near the mountains, and moved to Colorado in 1983. He met his wife there and was married in 1990. They made their home in Lafayette.
Darrell worked a variety of jobs, but came into his own when he started market farming in 2009. He rented acreage from a local farmer and from the Boulder County Open Space program. He built Ginger Cat Farm, which grew with the Longmont Farmer’s Market. Darrell loved his return to farming, as well as interacting with the people at the market.
