Our Commitment to Local Food
As they say, a farmer’s work is never done. The Steamboat Food and Wine Festival thanks Alpine Bank, whose support allows us to work with local farmers, growers and producers to support our community of chefs and culinary festival talent each year. We know the importance of fresh eggs, humanely treated animals and the unparalleled taste of organically grown produce. We commit to supporting local by supporting our region’s family farms and businesses in all their efforts to provide each year’s festival with a bounty everyone can taste and enjoy.
Festival Purveyors & Farmers
Mountain Bluebird Farm
This husband and wife team of organic growers is a new member of the Steamboat community, serving up fresh greens, herbs and veggies at each week’s summer farmers market. Mountain Bluebird supplies this same high-altitude produce to our festival’s chefs.
Hayden Fresh Farm
An integral part of the Yampa Valley, we’re thrilled to have Hayden Fresh supply festival chefs with locally grown meat and eggs. The farm embodies all things local, from feed for the animals to providing composting eggshells for the community.
Black Cat Farm
A family-run operation that cultivates over 400 acres in Boulder county, Black Cat grows everything from mustard greens and artichokes to heritage-bred pasture raised lamb and pork. Did we mention that they’re also certified organic and biodynamic?
Seattle Fish Company
A Denver-based company committed to providing local communities with fresh, sustainably caught fish, Seattle Fish Company gives back to multiple Denver-area charity organizations and is a proud purveyor for the 2020 Steamboat Food and Wine Festival.
Consisting of a network of over 750 independent family farmers and ranchers, Niman Ranch proudly raises beef, pork and lamb using humane and sustainable farming practices and is the largest farmer and rancher network in North America to be 100% Certified Humane.
Community Agricultural Alliance
A cheerleader for preserving agricultural history and promoting localism, Steamboat’s very own Ag Alliance has offered Yampa Valley residents a way to conveniently sell and buy locally farmed goods. We’re thrilled to have them on board to support our festival’s culinary needs.
