The Harvest Grill & Greens

Robert and Cynthia Are Hitting The Road!

With the recent permit approval, it's time to make some serious decisions about the new building for the market and restaurant. Robert and Cynthia have decided they had better learn more about brick and mortar restaurants before they dive into such a large investment. Soon after the October 14th Harvest Festival, they will be taking a motor home with Sasha on the road to visit successful restaurants and chefs in over 15 cities/towns in the Western United States.

In order to accomplish this journey, The Grill will be closed starting October 14th until the last Saturday of the year, December 30, to celebrate the end of the year and the beginning of the next. In their absence, their lead, summer cook, Tarryn, has agreed to continue the Grill tradition of providing soups and chili (using all organic, locally harvested ingredients) which will be for sale in the market.

If any of you have a favorite restaurant in Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California or Nevada you recommend we visit, please let us know!

The Harvest Grill will be closed until the last Saturday of the year, December 30. Soups and chili (using all organic, locally harvested ingredients) will still be for sale at The James Ranch Market on Saturdays. See below for hours.

Our delicious meats, cheeses and vegetables are produced on the James Ranch using organic, sustainable, grass-based practices and have been for over 50 years. We strive to use organic ingredients in everything we serve from sauces to pickles. What the families at James Ranch do not produce, we do our best to purchase from local vendors that take pride in their quality products and ingredients.

Come out to the Ranch and enjoy lunch or dinner at the Harvest Grill and Greens. This great little food cart has been created by one of the James family, Cynthia James Stewart. She and her husband Robert are serving up a variety of freshly prepared sandwiches, burgers, bratwurst, and salads sourcing a vast majority of the food from right here on the ranch. The menu is based on the seasonal supply of James Ranch products and is subject to change. Gluten free options are available.

You are welcome to come and enjoy your burger or grilled cheese sandwich on the terraces while taking in views of the ranch.
