2019 Farm to Table Harvest Dinner finally announced!

Whoo! It take as a lot of work to put together a dinner! We’ve found an amazing chef – Annie (and Bob) DeCoteau of Rise Artisan Bread. We’ve settled on a rough menu (smoked turkey and brisket!) and we’ve got our band lined up (thank you to the Wilson’s for joining us again!)  Our friends at the Farmer and Adele are graciously hosting us again and have provided more table space so we can have more friends join in the fun!  We can’t wait to spend an evening watching the sun go down over Berthoud with all of you again.  Ticket prices are $80, that includes all of the above plus an array of desserts (have you had one of Darlene’s pies?) and an open bar.

Silent Auction Fundraiser

We are so excited for a new event we have scheduled for March!  We will be hosting a silent auction and dinner at Hale and Bradford’s Tasting Room in Berthoud. Hey, we need to pay bills, too, so we are hoping you will join us for some fun to help support Berthoud Local. We already have a great array of silent auction items pouring in from local businesses and artisans. I mean, come on, we are Berthoud Local! We are all about our local businesses!

This event will also feature a taco bar, and you guessed it, we are working on locally sourced ingredients! We are hoping you will join us for some fun, food, music and our auction. Meet the Board of Berthoud Local, find out what we do, and how we support local food in our community. We’ll have information available on how you can get involved, about our Community Garden in Pioneer Park, the Farmer’s Market and our wonderful Farm to Table dinner.

March 26 – 6-9 PM at Hale and Bradford’s upstairs. We hope to see you there!

Now Hiring: Market Director

2018 will be our 5th year of of the Berthoud Local Farmers Market!  From humble beginnings of just a handful of vendors, the market has grown to a thriving market in the center of Berthoud.  In fact, it has grown so much we have decided that we can no longer run it with an all-volunteer crew.

So Berthoud Local is looking to hire a Market Director!  This is a terrific opportunity to get involved with our great community, and usher the market into it’s next great phase.  If you are passionate about local food, organizing a lot of pieces to fit into one smooth running operation, this will be a great job for you!
