Catering by Plenty

(Pastures of Plenty Farm and other event locations)
Plenty is Colorado’s original and most genuine Farm-to-Table caterer. Our food is different, no chafing dishes with pre-cooked food lurking within. We create true food, celebratory, not stuffy. Our food and displays feature vegetables and flowers from our 35-acre organic farm, Pastures of Plenty. We also source ingredients from our friend’s farms, ranches, orchards, vineyards and dairies. Whether you want to be transformed by the flavors of the Yucatan or the hills of Umbria, or simply wish to savor locally grown organic foods, Plenty serves flavors true to this world’s great food culture.
Plenty personalizes a menu for each event based your requests, party size, and seasonality. These components mean that prices per person can vary significantly. See our Farm to Table menu offerings as well as these other sample menus.
Plenty is committed to providing clients with genuine Farm to Table cuisine. Drawing from the world’s greatest food traditions our menu emphasizes local, organic and seasonal ingredients—many from our fields. Whether your event is for 75 or 200 guests, a five-course dinner for 24, or a company picnic, we promise the highest quality service and full-flavored foods that are truly of our time and place.
Catering services include:
- A personalized menu from Chef Lyle Davis. We work to meet most special dietary needs, and encourage the use of fresh and seasonal ingredients.
- Wait service and bar staff.
- Set-up and tear down of event space, including tables, chairs and dishware.
- Cake and coffee service, hot tea, iced tea and tap water.
- Compostable dishes, cups and napkins may also be used in lieu of china, glassware and napkins.
Events at the Farm
Thank you for considering Pastures of Plenty Farm as a venue for your event. When you choose to host your event with us, you become part of the history of the property, which was originally homesteaded in 1887. We are a full service farm-to-table event facility located just 10 minutes from downtown Boulder, Colorado. Our 35-acre family farm is not your typical event venue; it is a working farm and home to the Tawse-Davis Family. As such, we have certain rules and regulations that must be followed. Please read on to see if our family farm is the right fit for your event. Above all, we will ensure that your time on the farm is ripe and bountiful. Overlooked by mesas to the east, and the Boulder foothills to the west, the Farm is surrounded by idyllic fields of organic flowers and vegetables.

3. Rental Items
Pastures of Plenty Farm works with All Events Rentals to provide glassware, dishes, flatware, linens, dining tables, chairs, and any other rental needs. Clients will be responsible for ordering items, selecting colors, styles, etc. We will receive the order, set up and break down. Please call on us for any advice or recommendations.
Pastures of Plenty Farm provides coffee service, tea, iced tea, and tap water. Clients are responsible for purchasing and delivery of any additional beverages including alcohol, soda, juice, bottled water, ice, etc. We will set up the bar, serve and clean-up. We do not charge a corkage-fee.
Average combined cost: $150 per person (includes farm rental, catering, rental goods and beverages)
Pastures of Plenty Farm does not book events on an hourly basis, and we only book one event per day. Out of respect for our neighbors, events can run no later than 9:30 PM. This means that last call for music and alcohol will be 9 PM. We ask that guests respect a 9:30 PM departure time. Additionally, we request that the total event time — meaning the time from first arrival to when your entire party departs — not exceed 9 hours.
At Pastures of Plenty Farm we are music lovers, but we are nestled in a rural neighborhood. In order to ensure that we can continue to host events at our farm, we ask that you respect the following when selecting the music for your event. The following is not permitted:
- DJs or loud and boisterous wedding music
- Full drum sets, electric bass or electric guitars
NOTE: We do allow acoustic instruments or iPods amplified at a volume not to exceed 70 decibels. We will work with you ahead of time on this, but we reserve the right to decide appropriate volume levels.
We look forward to hearing from you! For further information please contact us.
Pastures of Plenty Farm provides extraordinary floral services. We grow over 75 varieties of organic flowers. Learn more about our Flowers.
Looking for something a bit different from the norm? We offer a collection of antique dishware that can be rented for your event.
Wedding Cakes or Not!
