Default Fresh Hops

I really love fresh hop beers and this year I would like to find a place where I can buy some fresh off the vine, so I can attempt a batch or two.

Does anyone in know of a farm in Colorado that would allow a home brewer to buy (and maybe pick myself) hops fresh from the vine?

I contacted Palisade Organic Hops Farm, but they only have Crystal and I was hoping for a little variety or at least something I am familiar with. I was hoping for Colombus/Cascade/Centennial/Chinnok, etc...

Crooked Stave's Fertile Soil got their hops from

Jack Rabbit Hill Farm (http://jackrabbithill.com/)

So you could try contacting them?

You could also check out the Brews Brothers of Pike Peak, I know a lot of those guys grow their own.
