Dear Friends of Meadow Lark Farm Dinners,

As winter wind scours the plains with snow and farm fields are left to rest, we savor our memories of a wonderful farm dinner season. We would like to extend our warmest thanks to all who helped us celebrate Colorado's farms and farmers last summer. It was a privilege to have you at our table. And most importantly, we thank our hosts—the farmers—for welcoming us all on their farms, and for inspiring us with their dedicated work and fine harvests.

We are already making plans for our 2011 season. In the meantime, we're keeping our wood fire burning just a little longer: We are preparing for two special Meadow Lark Farm Dinner fundraisers at Cure Organic Farm.

Anne and Paul Cure have been working toward turning the old Tree House nursery shop into a farm store and community kitchen for teaching classes and preserving their harvest. Our holiday fundraiser dinners will take place inside the Tree House farm store and kitchen building, on Thursday, December 16 and Saturday, December 18, at 6:00 PM. The cost of these dinners will be $100 per person, plus tax (wine is purchased separately, as at our regular dinners). All profits from these two evenings will go toward equipment and improvements of the Tree House kitchen.

Reservations will open on Monday, November 29, at noon. Seats are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We hope you can join us!

We wish you a Happy Holiday Season.

We're proud to announce our
Fourth Annual White Truffle and Barolo Event
