Carbondale’s family-owned-and-operated Sunfire Ranch has been one of the Roaring Fork Valley’s longest-held properties, in continuous operation since 1893. The working cattle ranch also produces grain and vegetable crops on its 350 acres. Now, locals and visitors wanting to get a literal taste of farm life can participate by attending meals and events at The Guest House. The venue is available for weddings and other private events and the culinary program also includes public farm dinners, workshops, hands-on classes and more—with over 95 percent of the ingredients sourced onsite. Says Guest House founder and CEO Seth O’Donovan, “We’re partnering with Sunfire Ranch and their farmer tenant, Wild Mountain Seeds, to execute aspects of our vision, which will eventually include an 11-room inn in the restored original farmhouse.” Sign up now to attend a foraging workshop on May 26.
