Colorado Summer Produce & Local Farming
When people think about Colorado, outdoor adventure and the Rocky Mountains are usually the first things to pop up in people’s minds. We get it – the picturesque mountaintops and scenery are one-of-a-kind in our nation.
Colorado Farming & Agriculture
What most people don’t know, is that between all those beautiful open fields lays a big portion of Colorado’s economic output. We are fortunate to have such fertile lands that provide us with an abundance of produce – especially during this time of the year.
What’s cookin’! Colorado Summer Produce
From July to October, Colorado’s agriculture diversifies and the warm season brings an incredible array of produce to choose from. During these months, our chefs at Relish Catering carefully select the produce and are able to create the most decadent and flavourful dishes of the year.
Some of the fresh & local ingredients that we work with during the summer months include cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, bell peppers, broccoli, onions and many more. On a sweet note, fruits like raspberries, strawberries, melons and nectarines also go in season at this time of the year, allowing us to expand our menu options to create even more spectacular dishes.
Our chefs use Colorado-based ingredients as much as possible to showcase the goodness our state has to offer. It can be as simple as adding sliced fruit onto a salad – how good does this goat cheese salad topped with fresh and local strawberries look?
Relish’s Social Responsibility
Social responsibility is embedded within our ethos. We strongly believe in being green and making the environment our priority. By sourcing local and sustainable produce, we are able to do our part in making the world greener and providing higher quality dishes. The closer the food is produced to home, the fresher and tastier it will be. As a byproduct, buying local supports farmers in your area and helps preserve farmland. Because of this same reason, we source some of our summer produce from Olathe Sweet Corn, Rocky Ford Cantaloupe & Palisade Peaches & Cherries. We’ve also partnered with the best vendors in town to keep things local. Check out our local food partners spotlight blog to learn more about them.
