Culver is a small farming community nestled in a fertile valley 2,633 feet above sea level. Summer is usually dry and sunny rarely exceeding 100 degrees while the nights are cool. Winter brings temperatures that can dip into the twenties at night, but usually warm up into the forties during the day. We usually see some snow but the average is only about 6 inches.
Crops that are grown include garlic, potatoes, certified grass, alfalfa, grain, mint and vegetable seeds. Even though the growing season is short, it is quite productive.
