At Hell's Backbone Grill & Farm, now in our 18th season, 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 6-acre organic farm is located three miles south of the restaurant in Lower Boulder. Our skilled team of farmers 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.

Thanksgiving 2017 - Make Reservations Today!
Our Thanksgiving Feast is our favorite event of the year, when we celebrate the bounty of our harvest and the end of another beautiful season in Boulder. Many of our guests have made this their Thansgiving tradition and return year after year to this dinner. We love to see old and new friends alike!
We offer an unforgettable meal utilizing fresh ingredients from our farm and local producers. Traditional heritage breed turkeys are prepared from scratch, along with over 30 accompanying side dishes and desserts. More food than you can imagine! And Blake prepares a selection of beautiful wines and a full bar list to accompany the different courses. Many of our dishes are vegetarian and/or gluten-free. Dinner is served family style at communal tables, and all of our guests leave with full bellies and even fuller hearts.
