Opening for the season on March 17, 2017

Come Visit Our Amazing Acreage!

We have our own farm! Not an herb garden, a farm! With a tractor and goats and everything!

At Hell's Backbone Grill, we serve food and drink that reflect our deep commitment to sustainability and intention to be of benefit in the world. Our ingredients are simple and honest: sustainably grown vegetables, herbs and flowers from the restaurant's own no-harm organic farm, and Boulder-raised grass-fed and -finished local lamb and beef. We lovingly tend over 75 heirloom fruit trees and 130 heritage-breed laying hens who provide the eggs for the breakfast plates.

Hell’s Backbone Grill’s organic farm is located three miles south of the restaurant in Lower Boulder. Our skilled team of farmers, WWOOFers and volunteers work to supply our kitchen with as many varieties of heirloom vegetables, greens and herbs as possible during our growing season. Our awesome cook team works diligently to capture and preserve the bounty of the fields. We freeze, dry and can every last morsel!

The farm is worked organically, employing principles of sustainability and Buddhist values of right livelihood. We use no chemicals, all weeding is done by hand (or by our two rescue goats), and we rely on companion planting and relocation to deter pests. Between our six acres, our hoophouse and the straw-bale greenhouse, we grow over 22,000 pounds of produce a year!

Reservations are strongly recommended for dinner.
