Hoofin It Through Denver’s Lower Highlands Powered by Pig
Denver’s inaugural edition of Hoofin It will debut across four Denver neighborhoods the week of August 17-20, and we hope your hoofs are rested and ready to taste your way through one of them (or two or three…or four). Guests of the series – which spans across four culinary destinations each night – will hoof it through four limited menus, each of which feature a different hoofed animal. Organizer and Heroes Like Us Founder Jensen Cummings shares that “Hoofin It is a fun and disarming way to talk about responsible and sustainable ranching, and there is no better way to do that than through eating with good company.”
HOOFIN IT THROUGH LOHI: PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS
Proudly presented by
The Humane Society of the United States has been concerned about farm animal protection since its founding in 1954 and has led national efforts to advance farm animal protection. Their work has included passing farm animal welfare laws, exposing consumers to how farm animals are typically mistreated, and working with retailers to improve farm animal welfare in their supply chains.
Heroes Like Us, Imbibe Denver, and the Mile High Business Alliance targeted ranches that raise their hoofed animals with nothing but the highest standards that uphold their culinary values. Take the Hoofin It tour through Denver’s LoHi neighborhood for example, which will source a pig from Heritage Belle Farms here in Colorado. Heritage Belle Farms raises their pigs as nature intended, with no unnecessary antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones. They even implement higher standards of care that minimize stress, increase comfort, and improve the safe handling of the animal, which is what makes the pig taste so damn good – that’s just science.
Ticketing for the Hoofin It series is now live on the website and you can pick and choose your culinary destiny based on the animal or night of the week. Proceeds from Hoofin It will benefit the Mile High Business Alliance’s effort to create a staffed position in the Colorado Food Guild, which you can read about here.
