Secure tickets for an August dinner beginning July 6
Colorado’s Front Range is dotted with fields of rolling farm land, pumping out fresh produce and other goods that eventually end up for sale at farm stands, weekly farmers’ markets, and in the kitchens of Colorado restaurants committed to supporting local farmers.
With so many accessible farms in the area, it’s no surprise that the popularity of farm dinners is on the rise. And thanks to businesses like Meadow Lark Farm Dinners, they’re highly in demand this summer. Created in 2008, the mobile eatery hosts community-style dinners in the fields at a handful of local farms like the Lyons Farmette, and east Boulder’s Cure Organic Farm and Munson Farm.
Using fresh ingredients sourced from the host farm for the evening, Meadow Lark creates and serves five-course meals under the brilliant colors of a Colorado evening sky. Along with a menu inspired by the day’s harvest, guests also get the chance to share a meal and a personal farm tour with the farmers who grew the bounty served on their plates. If you’re looking for a true farm-to-table experience, this is definitely it.
Meadow Lark Farm Dinners are held every Thursday and Saturday evening from June through September. Reservations are made in a lottery fashion, with each month’s lottery lasting 24 hours, after which time 42 lucky diners per dinner will be awarded a dinner invitation. The ticket price per person is $125 and wine pairing suggestions and arrangements are available for an additional fee.
The lottery for Meadow Lark Farm Dinner’s August season opens up Monday, July 6. More info on making reservations and Meadow Lark Farm Dinner’s can be found at farmdinners.com.
