Fields of Dreams

If an invite to have dinner on the farm sounds like a picnic table, baked beans, and dirty-denim affair, rethink that idea. In Colorado, farm-side suppers are staged from late spring through fall, and they are some of the finest, most romantic meals you’ll ever experience. Imagine dining al fresco at community tables, viewing fields that spread toward the horizon, and savoring food that was harvested hours before it lands on your plate. Discover the magic of authentic farm-to-table cuisine.

Cure Organic Farm produces more than just mouthwatering vegetables. Honey bee hives, egg-laying hens and ducks, and heritage pigs, turkeys, and sheep that are raised for meat all share space at this Boulder farm. The land—crops are grown on 12 acres—is magical, and dinners here celebrate the coming together of community, fresh produce, and culinary finesse. For their events, which run $95, farmer-owners Anne and Paul Cure partner with Meadow Lark Farm Dinners, which helps the duo execute the soirées. Meals are prepared on-site in Meadow Lark’s school bus—smartly retrofitted with a kitchen—that trundles from farm to farm. Meadow Lark’s dinners have become legendary, and reservations are obtained via a lottery system. cureorganicfarm.com; farmdinners.com
