Step by Step, Row by Row:  How to Start Your Own Farm Dinner Business
January 14 & 15, 2012
Cure Organic Farm, Boulder, Colorado
This 2-day workshop is intended for cooks, chefs, artists and artisans, farmers, food lovers and anyone who feels inspired by seasonal, locally grown foods—and mobile kitchens.
Meadow Lark Farm Dinners offer residents and visitors of Colorado’s Front Range a chance to set foot on one of many local farms, be seated at an elegant table set outdoors among the crops, and savor a handcrafted dinner prepared from the day’s harvest. We’ve enjoyed four beautiful and successful seasons of bringing our school-bus-turned-kitchen to our local farms. Last summer, demand for seats at our table was so great that we moved to a lottery system for assigning reservations!
We feel fortunate to have been part of a growing awareness and appreciation of locally sourced, sustainably grown foods. Farm dinners and other opportunities to taste the seasons and visit local farms have been taking shape around the country, and we've been fielding inquiries about how to get a business like ours started. In response to such queries, we've gathered our experience and knowledge into this workshop.
Over the course of two days, Veronica Volny, founder of Meadow Lark Farm Dinners, and Bill Young, licensed contractor and builder of Meadow Lark's school-bus-turned-kitchen, will present everything you need to know to get your own farm dinner business off the ground in your community: mobile kitchen options, equipment needs, licensing, start-up costs and operating expenses.
