About Jen
The founder of Moonstone Ventures, Jen is a Certified Martha Beck and Equus Coach and earned an MBA in Organizational and Environmental Sustainability from Antioch University New England. Jen has spent over 15 years in the non-profit sector working as a consultant, executive director and environmental educator. She lives on the Moonstone Farm property with her husband Josh and son Sam.

Moonstone farm sits on two acres in Salida, Colorado.  It is residence of Jennifer Visitacion and her family, who also operate the organic farm and chicken flock.  The beautiful property has two houses; one a gorgeous 1900 Victorian, and the other a modest carriage house.  The property is nestled on the greenbelt banks of the South Arkansas river, providing serene, natural beauty, as well as some incredible wildlife. The property also has a barn and pasture area, giving the feeling of a truly classic farm.  It is a truly unbelievable location, with the night life of a small historic town, but the peace of a mountain cabin.

The property is large enough for sizable groups, and may be a great location for a wedding, reunion, or other fun events.  If you are looking for a venue for your wedding, retirement, or graduation parties, give Moonstone Ventures a look.  We can accommodate for anything to give you the best event possible.  Event packages can be arranged to accommodate you and special guests, if that would be so desired.  Please contact Jen directly for pricing and packages available for events and gatherings.  See our “About” page for her contact information.


For vacation and personal rentals, we have a few options to make your vacation relaxing and magical.  We have the Moonstone cottage, which rests adjacent to the South Arkansas River, that can accommodate up to 6 people.  This cottage has plenty of character, evidenced by the exposed brick, stone, and wood architecture.  For larger rentals, we can also rent out our house, which is suitable for up to 10 guests.  It is a beautiful 1900 Victorian, and also has an abundance of character.  For inquiries and to contact us about properties and rental arrangements, please visit our “About” tab, or look below on this page for direct links to listings.
