Farm to Fork Picnic | Sharing a meal on our shared lands
Eagle Valley Land Trust and Alpine Bank are proud to announce the first ever Farm to Fork Picnic! While the pandemic has altered the nature of EVLT’s most important annual fundraiser, Farm to Fork, we are delighted to report that the show lives on. The format – different; the mingling – apart; but the food – scrumptious; the drinks – as clever as you can make them; the community spirit – palpable.
The Farm to Fork Picnic takes place wherever you choose – your favorite open space, deep in the backcountry, or in your yard, deck, or living room. Gather your family, friends, neighbors, or clients, and anyone else that shares your enthusiasm for local conservation and open space. Take a moment to savor the simple pleasures of the classic picnic – no assembly required; everything you need is provided.
You haven’t seen picnic baskets like these before. They have been lovingly customized, piece by piece, by your friends at EVLT. Each basket comes with exquisite, locally-sourced food from Chef Eric Berg; a printed program; an assortment of picnic-ready, intelligently engineered utensils, supplies, decor, and — of course — your choice of generously donated wine or beer to match from our friends at Bonfire Brewery. Plus, the insulated basket will serve you for many picnics to come.
The best part? Proceeds from the 2020 Farm to Fork Picnic support EVLT’s efforts to protect the lands that our community depends on. The pandemic has emphasized the importance of recreating as critical components of our physical, mental, and social health. EVLT’s conservation work is more important than ever. Order a basket or several for your group’s picnic, and be sure to purchase a basket for a frontline worker, teacher, family member, or someone that has helped you in a special way over the past few months.

The Farm to Fork Picnic is made possible by the continued support of our sponsors: Alpine Bank, American Gypsum, Balance Point Construction, FirstBank, Vail Resorts EpicPromise, Vail Daily, Wine by Joe, Dobbes Family Estate wines, Piney River Ranch, and Bonfire Brewing.
Eagle County’s lands, rivers, and open spaces are the foundation of our community, economy, and way of life. Protected lands support us through thick and thin. EVLT’s conservation efforts are funded entirely by donors and advocates like you. Each year, the Farm to Fork gala is a major component of EVLT’s fundraising plan. We hope that you will join us for the first ever Farm to Fork picnic to help move local conservation forward.
