Giving back is in the Grower's Organic DNA. We realize that we would be nothing without the wonderful restaurants in Colorado and people who work in them. This holiday season, we want to give back by holding a Pay It Forward contest.
The Grower's Organic team will choose five restaurant industry employees to win a GOBOX with all of the items they'll need to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for a family of five — complete with turkey, organic produce like root vegetables, squash, herbs and hearty greens, fresh cranberries and organic apple cider. Each winner will also be eligible to pick a charity to receive a $200 donation in their name from Grower's Organic.
In order to qualify, restaurants must be locally owned and have a strong commitment to serving organic produce. You can nominate a restaurant on our Facebook, Twitter or by filling out this form before October 25. Publicly-nominated restaurants will be contacted by Grower’s Organic to see if they are interested in...
Connectivity is important to us. We believe that people should know where their food comes from. For more than a decade, we have committed ourselves to sourcing the highest quality organic produce and putting it into the hands of the people. Oftentimes, that's through our wonderful restaurant partners across Colorado— ones that share our mission for organic food. These partner spotlights are meant to champion those businesses that are helping make dining in Colorado a more healthy, sustainable (and delicious!) experience.
MEET THE KITCHEN DENVER
Grower’s Organic has worked with The Kitchen Denver since the very beginning, but we’ve rekindled our relationship when Chef Jeffrey Webb joined their team.
We love seeing familiar faces pop up at different restaurants, and when Chef Jeff joined The Kitchen eight months ago, we were thrilled.
In Chef Jeff's own words: "I’ve been working with Brian and Grower's for about 10 years at several different venues. At The Kitchen Den...
It's simple — without farmers, our entire nation's economy would crumble. They are the people that are responsible for feeding us every day, and it's important to support them — especially small, local farmers who depend on selling their crop to feed their families.
In Colorado each year, the agriculture industry contributes more than 173,000 jobs and $40 billion to the state’s economy.
Shopping locally has become more popular in recent years, and we're so grateful for that. To help that trend continue and become a permanent priority in the American diet, we're sharing 5 ways to support Colorado farmers this fall.
1. Shop Locally — Even at the Grocery Store

Although many people think that farmers markets are the only place you can find produce, there's usually local options in your everyday grocery store. You just have to know where to look.
In Colorado, look for the small yellow and purple "Colorado Proud" sticker — this signifies tha...
September's here— the month where summer and fall collide. While sometimes it may be frustrating that the weather can't make up its mind, we love it here at Grower's Organic. For us, September brings a wonderful mix of end-of-summer and beginning-of-fall produce.
While we're not quite ready to jump into full-fall produce like pumpkins, you will see hints of harder squashes (like delicata) mixed with summer favorites like sweet corn. And, until fall fully rolls in, you better believe we're squeezing in every bite of those sweet, summer heirloom tomatoes.
Here's a list of what's in season in Colorado in September.
