Fortified Collaborations || Mad Farmer Dinner || Hope Farms, Colorado

Delicious food, fantastic drinks, and amazing community at the last farm dinner of the 2017 season. 

Inspired by the Mad Farmer Poems by Wendell Berry  the Mad Farmer Dinner, presented by Fortified Collaborations, was an amazing celebration of the end of the 2017 growing season and the farmers who feed our community. It was also the first event we took our new baby to, and he slept through it like a CHAMP - even with all the delicious smells, awesome live music, and the clanking of cheers-ing beers! Can't wait to see what next year will bring for these farm dinners - keep an eye out because they're just going to start selling out faster and faster, and they're always for a good cause!
