Live On An 83-Acre Conservancy
Longs Peak Farms, a designated Conservation Development, consists of 83 Acres, of which ONLY 20% will be developed into a pocket community of one-third to one-half acre lots. Nestled in a gorgeous rural setting, Longs Peak Farms is, and always will be, uniquely Berthoud.

A peaceful setting
Longs Peak Farms leaves 80% of the land undeveloped in its natural state, and one that houses a Colorado Division of Wildlife ‘buffer’ for Bald Eagles to mate and nest.

The perfect setting
A Conservation Development is a way to use…
A Conservation Development is a way for developers to use a “design with nature” philosophy when building communities. With 80% of Longs Peak Farms left in its natural state, we recognize that the design of how we live is far more important; that we protect the things that make Berthoud special: our biodiversity, scenic landscapes and historic and cultural resources.
Longs Peak Farm is uniquely different in that it offers the only Conservation Development that has DISTRICT WATER (not well), CITY SEWER (not septic) and currently enjoys the unincorporated advantage of State Sales Tax only (2.9% vs. 6.55% for Berthoud).
Conservation Water Tap
Longs Peak Farms also offers a Conservation Tap, where a homeowner can opt to pay for and use HALF the usual amount of water needed for your household and landscapes to preserve our precious water supplies. The Little Thompson Water District offers this as an opportunity to better meet the needs of new tap holders who choose to restrict the amount of water they need, preserving our precious water supplies.
Bald Eagles, Our First Residents
To the west of the homesights are several cottonwood trees that house Bald Eagles year round. Longs Peak Farms integrated the designated buffers the Colorado Division of Wildlife established, maintaining what is hopefully a Bald Eagle’s home for years to come. Enjoy these rare, and stunning reminders of America the beautiful.
TPC Colorado Golf Course
TPC Colorado’s 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Arthur Schaupeter, is scheduled to debut in the Spring of 2018. TPC Colorado is the only TPC-sanctioned course in the state of Colorado. TPC Colorado also has over 8 miles of walking trails and paths planned for the development, and is located just minutes away.
Why We Love Berthoud
Incorporated in 1888, what began as a settlement grew to include a handful of homes, a blacksmith shop, a mercantile store, a small grain elevator, and a log cabin that served as school and church for the community. The tiny settlement known as Little Thompson was renamed Berthoud in honor of Edward L. Berthoud, who had surveyed the rail route through the valley. We are proud of what continues today: a small, friendly community and vibrant lifestyle.
Choose one of the select builders we have partnered with to ensure a development that represents a set of small, competent, quality local semi-custom homebuilders that hold the same values — modeling how we want to see Berthoud grow now and in the future.
Longs Peak Farms History
“A people without the knowledge of their past history,
origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”
— Marcus Garvey
Longs Peak Farms honors the history of Maurice “Red” Haworth and his family. With over 100 years owning this land, the family’s roots are deep. From Berthoud’s first schoolhouse, to farming and raising sheep, the Haworth Family knew everything, and everyone in Berthoud.
