Rocky Mountain Food Tours

A lot of exiting news filled our blog during 2017, and we wanted to end the year with a quick recap!

We tasted a lot of great food, traveled to far off places, and interviewed our partners to get to know them better. But the thing we’ll remember most from 2017 is you!

In 2017, we hosted 95 tours for 973 guests. You came from all over the globe to try southern Colorado cuisine. Thank you for making this a banner year for us – the best one yet!

As we reflect on where we’ve come, we can’t help but be excited about the future. Big announcements are coming soon – you won’t want to miss them!
