Eat Local at Home

You can have farm-to-table meals — on your very own table at home. One of the benefits of living in an agricultural town like Berthoud is access to the small, local farms.

But in addition to the Berthoud Farmers’ Market, many of Berthoud’s farmers open their fields and farms to the community, so we can all have access to farm-fresh food. Some offer farm stands, pick-and-pay produce and CSA memberships. Others sell online.

Don’t Want to Cook?

It’s the perfect storm: The hunger crashes down on you, and you have no dinner prepared. Not only that, but your fridge is at the bottom of the grocery cycle and the only thing edible is a bag of carrots — wait, nope, they’re not edible.

It’s called the Happy Tails Dog Ranch, and if Epic is any indicator, the name is fitting.

A Closer Look at Berthoud’s Most Unusual Business

You’ve seen the shop on Mountain Avenue, right in the heart of downtown Berthoud. Windows are filled with lush plants and crystals glisten in the front window. It’s like no other business in town.

This business offers martial arts and yoga on one side and runs an apothecary, ministry and metaphysical school and store on the other. But it’s so much more.
The owner is equally as surprising.
