The farm

At Hayden Fresh Farm, south of Hayden, we want to provide fresh and nutritious products from our farm to your family. We do this by providing premium nutrition, a great environment, and caring management to all of our livestock. Our layers are cage free, with plenty of room to be happy chickens and are not fed any hormones or antibiotics. In the summer, our broilers, turkeys, and pigs have fresh grass, fresh air, and plenty of room to do what makes them happy.

The Food

I’m passionate about small farms, local ingredients, and the amazing flavors of comfort food from around the world. I’m inspired by travel and my bay area roots, and as a private chef in steamboat, hope to share my love of eating “real food” with you, and show you that food doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious.

The Routes

Having grown up on a farm I have always carried an appreciation for the hard work and care that yields quality food products, plus I love hanging with the animals! This event brings together elements I have always felt go hand in hand, while creating an opportunity to connect with and learn about an amazing farm operation right just outside of Steamboat Springs. And yes the gravel routes are going to blow your mind with beautiful scenery south of Hayden and into the Flat Tops!
