Farm to Table Dinners
Few things in life are more delicious and wholesome than a tomato or pepper plucked fresh from your garden – paired with grass-fed, dry-aged beef from Snow Creek Ranch – and prepared with much love just for you. Add in a convivial atmosphere, surrounded by friends new and old, with stunning panoramic views in every direction, and all the vital elements are present for one of the most memorable meals of your life.
This feeling is the inspiration behind our Farm to Table Dinners. Inspired by the beauty and bounty of our farm, we sought out some of the most creative and skilled chefs in Colorado to help us launch our farm dinner events.
With three events scheduled for this year, you have your choice of globally inspired barn banquets when you attend Summer Breeze in June, a Farm Feast in July, and finally a classic Colorado Steakhouse experience in September.

Our self guided walking tour will take you from the city asphalt to Colorado’s beautiful open space. You are invited to feed the chickens, pet the horses, and enjoy appetizers and a starter drink. Boots required – no kidding.
We also offer a complementary hay ride, from the parking area to the barn, on our antique 1930’s Sears and Roebuck hay wagon. Enjoy the alluring views of Southern Douglas County with its pine covered buttes and wide open sky.
What is Farm to Table Dining?
Also referred to as the farm to fork, slow food, or locavore movement, Farm to Table dining is one of the most popular, healthy, and sustainable trends to hit the world of food in the last few years. It’s based on the idea that the longer the time between the farm and your fork, the lower the overall quality of the produce.
At Snow Creek Larkspur, that means you’re getting the freshest, tastiest produce around – much of it grown and harvested locally at Mazotti Farms or Miller Farms, and prepared by One of our local acclaimed partner chefs. All of our chefs bring a penchant for fresh, seasonal and local ingredients along with innovative menus – all prepared, presented and served with mouth-watering flair and a focus on honest, passionate, food.
Gourmet Beef, Direct from the Kopriva Family Farm
How do we know that every savory cut of meat we serve is as delicious as possible? Because we raise it ourselves on the Kopriva family ranch outside Coffeyville Kansas. Our methods are a little old-fashioned, but we think it’s important to raise our animals in an ethical and environmentally sound way.
But best of all, because they’re not pumped full of hormones, antibiotics and drugs, the beef is simply delicious – so tender, your steak cuts like a hot knife through butter.

Why Have Your Farm to Table Dinner at Snow Creek Larkspur?
- Provide Good Stewardship Over God’s Creation – Delicious, locally sourced produce is a great way to cut down on the environmental impact caused by shipping fruits and vegetables hundreds or thousands of miles, across county, state, and even international borders.
WWJE (What Would Jesus Eat)? Probably local food!
- It’s Great for Our Local Economy – Supporting local growers means you’re helping to sustain local companies and keep your neighbors in business. We buy local because it keeps almost twice as much money in our own community as purchasing produce at a chain.
- It’s Downright Delicious – Healthy beef, raised on grass, grain-finished and encouraged to roam the range the way God intended, makes for thick, juicy, perfectly-marbled steaks.
- It’s Wholesome, Healthy & Nutritious! – Because farm to table cuisine is picked fresh and prepared from scratch, it’s generally better for you and your family than conventionally procured food. That’s because conventional produce is often picked before it can completely ripen and absorb nutrients, making it more hearty for transportation, but less nutritious when it gets to your table.
