BOB is such a useful tool for learning more about your community. That can be dining, shopping, services, events and so much more. We suggest saving this Best of the Best section for future reference. But we are also posting the section on our websites, so you can easily refer back to it, when needed.

Colorado Community Media, the publisher of your local newspaper, prints the Best of the Best each June. And this year’s BOB took the efforts of many, including our readers, who placed 264,280 votes. Our staff then compiled the votes using our certified electronic system and condensed it all down into this handy section.

Drink up the atmosphere

Bar manager Jeremy Duffy, right, is shown with bartender Robert Ramsey.

What they do Arvada Tavern 5707 Olde Wadsworth Blvd Arvada, CO 80002 arvadatavern.com 303-690-6269

If Clark Gable were alive today, he’d drink at Arvada Tavern. Mustaches, suspenders and vests abound in the mood-lit bar – the perfect setting for the tavern’s vintage craft cocktails, where the juice is squeezed daily, the mint is hand-picked and the ice is cut on site. In addition to timeless standbys like Manhattans, sidecars and mint juleps, the whiz-bang bartenders whip up seasonal creations to pair with an evolving dinner menu that includes schnitzel, salmon and quail. Keep coming back – there’s always something new to try.

History Arvada Tavern got its start in 1933 — the year Lady Liquor became legal again (in fact, it snagged Arvada’s first post-Prohibition liquor license). The building, which spent the dry years serving first as a blacksmith shop and later a livery, was restored to its former glory four years ago by owners Mike Huggins and Lenka Juchelkova. The couple is big on build-

ing the skills of their staff through classes and training, but give them room to play around and experiment.

Did you know? See that phone booth in the corner? It’s the secret speakeasy-style entrance to the bar’s classy upstairs live music venue.

He said it “Before Prohibition, bartending was a soughtafter career,” said bar manager Jeremy Duffy. “That’s where people went to talk about their problems and cut loose. Prohibition killed that, and the best bartenders went to England and Cuba to continue their craft.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

HIKING/BIKING TRAIL Ralston Creek Trail maps.arvada.org/opendata/ pdf/Trail_Map.pdf City of Arvada Parks Dept. 720-898-7400

Discover a path to fun About the trail Arvada’s Ralston Creek Trail winds nearly 14 miles along the shady banks of its namesake creek, through hilly country on the west end, through a variety of parks and open areas, terminating at the lofty and dramatic Gold Strike Park Pedestrian Bridge on the east end. The trail connects to a network of other paths headed toward Golden or North Table Mountain, and parks along the way provide skateboarding and disc golf courses. The trail’s eastern terminus is at the northwest corner of I-76 and Sheridan Boulevard, and the western end is on 66th Avenue just east of Highway 93. 

History Ralston Creek is named for Lewis Ralston, a Georgia prospector who found gold in the creek in 1850 on his way to California — eight years before William Green Russell’s gold strike in what is now Englewood set off the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. Ralston was too excited for California to stick around, but the creek kept

Did you know? The Johnny Roberts Disc Golf Course along the trail lies only five blocks from Best of the Best winner Arvada Tavern — a perfect pairing for a sunny summer afternoon.

She said it “I could hang out here all day – it’s so shady and nice,” said Dusty Eggen, strolling along the path with her boyfriend. “Heck, I’d just camp out here if I could.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

Menu offers much to smile about What they do Just a glance at Union’s made-from-scratch menu is enough to induce drooling. Items like blackberry grilled salmon, top sirloin with chimichurri and white cheddar fondue will satisfy anyone from the snootiest foodie to the meat-and-potatoes crowd. Energetic and imaginative chef Kim Heideman serves up daily lunch and dinner specials alongside old favorites like double-thick brine-cured pork chops. Other specials include half-price bottles of wine on Wednesdays and half-price martinis on Saturday.

History Dennis Dickey and a bevy of pals, veterans of the Yaya’s Euro Bistro chain, set up shop 11 years ago in the shell of an old Italian restaurant. Dennis, who’s been in the food biz since he was 12, met his wife, Christina – who now helps run Union – when they were both waiting tables back when eating seafood in Colorado meant Rocky Mountain oysters.

Union offers outdoor dining for those who want to enjoy the fresh air.

Photo by Shanna Fortier

Did you know? Union grows lots of its own produce in an onsite garden, providing inspiration for a shifting seasonal menu.

He said it “Union is unique in Castle Rock,” Dennis said. “It’s more like a place you’d see in LoDo — without the LoDo prices.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

A discipline for the ages What they do John Hallett and his wife, Jenny, are in the business of building self-confidence. Hallett’s gym, which offers classes in Crossfit, Yoga, mixed martial arts, Jiu Jitsu and more, specializes in Krav Maga, an Israeli self-defense form that focuses on practical applications. Hallett says too many martial arts schools focus on advancing students through levels and belts, whereas Krav Maga teaches real-world defense against even gun-wielding attackers. Rocky Mountain offers classes to students as young as 4, and their oldest student is 72.

History Hallett started teaching taekwondo and aikido on Nantucket Island, but felt the call of the West after visiting his brother, who was stationed at Fort Carson. Now in its 10th year, Rocky Mountain features a slew of beefy instructors for students looking to stand up for themselves or just melt away extra pounds in an encouraging environment.

Owner John Hallett works with students.

Did you know? Krav Maga has become popular among law enforcement agencies, beginning with the Los Angeles Police Department, and has spread to being a requirement for officers in hundreds of departments nationwide.

He said it “People think they can’t do this, but we’re here for beginners. All you have to do is walk in the door,” John said. “I love seeing people empowered, losing weight and feeling confident. When someone knows how to defend themselves, they carry themselves differently.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

Cookies and Crema is everything the big chains wish they could be – a true Third Place beyond work and home, a homey fair-trade coffee shop featuring high-quality ingredients, many sourced from Colorado producers. The little shop offers a full breakfast, including breakfast burritos smothered in made-fromscratch green chili. The affordable lunch menu is loaded with tasty sandwiches, from classic standbys like BLTs to simple-yet-elegant fare like the Tuscan, featuring basil pesto and Swiss cheese on fresh-carved turkey. Teas, smoothies and a kids’ menu make for a full-service shop.

History April Arellano and her husband, Jesse, founded Cookies and Crema three years ago, looking to create a family-friendly coffee spot with modern sensibilities in a down-home atmosphere. The shop continues to evolve, now more of a coffee shop/café/bakery that fits the still-asmall-town vibe of Castle Rock.

Co-owner Jesse Arellano takes an order.

Did you know? Coffee aficionados will recognize the shop’s name as a reference to crema, the top layer of a high-quality espresso shot.

He said it “Never underestimate the power of a relationship,” Jesse said. — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

Are you living with urinary leakage? Are you unable to walk for 10 minutes without needing to go to the bathroom? Do you have a child or grandchild that wets the bed?

IT IS NEVER NORMAL TO LEAK URINE!

HelP IS Here! Physical Therapy Specialists can help WITHOUT drugs! ADUlTS:

So many of our patients have been told that urinary leakage is a normal part of aging. We have seen patients give up activities that matter to them such as playing golf, going to the playground and playing with grandchildren or knowing literally where every bathroom is at the mall. Is that YOU? Have you ever had to say NO to an invitation because you didn’t have confidence that you wouldn’t leak? No matter how old you are or how many babies you’ve had you don’t need to live with urinary incontinence!

CHIlDreN:

Were you ever told your child will outgrow bedwetting but yours didn’t? Has your child had to miss out on sleepovers or summer camp? Bedwetters experience shame, embarrassment and problems with self-esteem. Families experience conflict and emotional pain. research states not to wait until your child outgrows it. Physical Therapy Specialists can help!

Thank you ALL who voted us

BesT of The BesT!

It has been our privilege to serve you. After winning the award for Best of the Best for 2016 as well as 2015, I’ve decided to put together free tips reports to help adults stop urinary leakage and children stop bedwetting.

Helping build leaders of the future What they do

St. Thomas More School 7071 E Otero Ave. Centennial, CO 80112 stmcatholic.org 303-770-0441

Forget the image of stodgy nuns with rulers – St. Thomas More’s tight-knit community of more than 550 preschool to eighth-grade students receive a well-rounded education in the three R’s, science, arts, music, a slew of extra-curriculars and that old-time religion in an engaging, fun and academically rigorous environment. Lofty test scores speak to St. Thomas More’s success, and the smiles of students speak to a deeper satisfaction. An 18to-1 student-teacher ratio means students get close attention to become critical thinkers with strong morals.

St. Thomas More School was established in 1994.

Courtesy photo

Did you know? The school’s patron saint is known for “Utopia,” a book about an imaginary island with a perfect political system.

She said it

History St. Thomas More, the parochial school of St. Thomas More Catholic Church, was established in 1994 and is the largest Archdiocese of Denver Catholic school and parish. St. Thomas More is the first and only school in the Archdiocese of Denver to be named a National Blue Ribbon School.

“We are dedicated to creating future saints and leaders throughout the community,” said Principal Jan Altevogt. “We are blessed to have a strong support system through our parish, parents, staff and community that help us continue to be at the forefront of education and faith.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

GOLF COURSE

A place for birdies and other wildlife What they do

Spring Valley Golf Club 42350 CR 17-21 Elizabeth, CO 80107 springvalleygolf.com 303-646-4240

Spring Valley is the “Cheers” bar of golf courses – where everybody knows your name. Unlike crowded public courses, at Spring Valley you’re a friend by your second visit. The par-72 course has drawn notables and hosted the CGA Match Play Qualifier. Spring Valley is home to a variety of men’s, women’s and junior leagues, a fully-stocked pro shop and a restaurant that hosts prime rib dinners on Fridays. Allen Kline’s maintenance crew keeps the greens immaculate.

History Originally a working 1,500-acre cattle ranch, landowners Ron and Sylvia Haynes began construction of the course in 1995, completing all 18 holes in 1998. The clubhouse underwent a substantial revamping in 2005. The course plays from 5,200 yards from the forward tees to 7,200 yards from the championship tees.

local nonprofit Elizabeth Networking Group facebook.com/groups/ elizabethnetworking/

Did you know? Prairie wildlife call the course home, with red tail hawks, raccoons, rabbits, mule deer, geese, pronghorn and coyote wandering through.

He said it “The beauty of this place is irresistible, man!” gushed Justin Cirbo, PGA director of golf. “You’ve gotta see it for yourself.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

Helping to build community

Elizabeth Networking Group facilitator Jenny West.

What they do Elbert County’s population may be small, but it’s home to big ideas and big talent. Home-based massage therapist Jenny West’s Facebook-based networking group draws together the dispersed and diverse businesses and services of the little prairie community of Elizabeth — and organizes help for folks in need. Jenny hosts regular events so neighbors can meet each other, patronize each other’s entrepreneurial enterprises and donate money to those in dire straits.

History Jenny started the group in 2013 after moving to Elizabeth from Parker and discovering there was little organization among businesses in the area. She invited every business in the area with a Facebook presence, and soon her events grew from a few attendees to dozens, including county and school officials. Today, the Facebook group boasts more than 1,300 members and is a lively roster of happenings.

Courtesy photo

Did you know? Jenny scheduled a scavenger hunt of Elizabeth businesses on June 23 with a $100 prize for the winner.

She said it “Elbert County is a force to be reckoned with,” Jenny said. “There are businesses out here that are fantastic, know what they’re doing and deserve dollars from their community and outside.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

This truck comes fully loaded What they do Ever had breakfast pizza? You might snag some from Rolling Dough, the food truck love child of friends Joseph Friedman and Tim Bennhoff. The duo’s menu includes chicken and waffles pizza, biscuits and gravy pizza, as well as classics like Margherita loaded with fresh basil and tomatoes. Their best seller is the bob-atillo, a pie topped with a tomatillo-based sauce, IPA-braised pork, red onions, queso fresco and fresh cilantro. Though they mostly stick around Golden, they’re starting to venture into Denver.

History Tim, a Colorado native from Georgetown, met Joseph, who came to Colorado by way of Chicago, five years ago when they worked at a pizza and bagel place in Golden. The two fast friends started dreaming up their food truck and developed a business plan while they worked together at Whole Foods. The dream became a reality two years ago, and they’ve

left a lot of smiling faces and full bellies in their wake.

Did you know? The Rolling Dough truck includes a built-in, Italian-made wood-fired oven.

He said it: “What thrills me is the pride of having something you worked hard for and is 100 percent yours,” Joseph said. “ It makes me feel like more of a member of the community.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

Painting a picture of success What they do Looking to impress a date with your artistic talent, even if you don’t have much? Try Art on the Brix, a “paint-and-sip” studio where, over the course of an evening, skilled instructors guide guests through creating works of art in a relaxed setting replete with wine and music. The studio also hosts summer camps for kids focused on media like metalwork, wax and screen printing. Art on the Brix also goes mobile, hosting on-site painting nights for parties and team-building exercises. They’re also ramping up painting days at local breweries, with popular “paint-your-growler” events.

History Alyssa Graves and her dad, Barry, started the business five years ago after attending a similar class elsewhere. Barry loves wine and Alyssa loves to paint, so they felt it was a natural endeavor. They’ve traveled as far as Black Hawk and Fort Collins to draw people together and get their creative juices flowing.

Guests show off their creations after a night at Art on the Brix. Courtesy photo

Did you know? Noted local artist Jesse Crock, whose murals can be seen around Golden, teaches classes at Art on the Brix.

She said it “Painting with us brings you into the moment,” Alyssa said. “You’re not thinking about anything else. Even if you come in alone, you’ll make connections and meet people.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

This business has blossomed

Designer Zoë DeAngelis puts the finishing touches on an anniversary bouquet.

What they do Abloom 9325 Dorchester St. #122 Highlands Ranch, CO 80129 abloomhighlandsranch.com 303-470-1700

Pay attention to the floral arrangements at the next wedding you attend: If they’re a tasteful and unique array with a crisp modern style, chances are good they came from Abloom. Owner Maxine Cutts Alcott graces her work with a keen eye for negative space, utilizing branches and tide grasses to stunning effect. She and her staff also prepare arrangements and décor for funerals, corporate events and about the best possible apologies for spouses in the doghouse. Maxine strives to source as much of her product as possible from Colorado growers.

History Maxine is entering her 32nd year as a florist. She spent her first decade in the business in a small studio before opening Abloom in 1994. Abloom has been in its current spot for seven years, after 15 years elsewhere. The shop delivers all over Douglas County and the metro area.

Photo by David Gilbert

Did you know? Abloom is also home to décor and gifts from more than 100 American artists (and a handful from Canada).

She said it “We have so many repeat customers – I’ve got one family where I’ve done all three daughters’ weddings,” Maxine said. — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

An emphasis on learning by doing What they do We may not have a ton of water in Colorado, but we sure play in what we have. Future cliff divers and kayakers would do well to get an early start on swimming skills at Waterworks, where highly-trained instructors oversee classes for students as young as 3 months. Waterworks uses a muscle memory technique in which instructors manipulate students’ limbs so they learn by doing, not just following instruction. Most classes max out at two students, so kids get individualized attention in Waterworks’ king-size pool. Waterworks also hosts parent-and-me classes and swim teams for more advanced amphibious youngsters.

History Waterworks was founded 10 years ago in Orange County, California, by collegiate swimmer Jon Alpert. He saw a need to teach kids water safety early and head off common bad habits

like looking straight ahead while swimming instead of keeping the head down, which can lead to reduced efficiency and increased fatigue. Waterworks has multiple locations in California and Texas, as well as Colorado.

He said it “I was an ocean lifeguard for 10 years in San Clemente, California,” said aquatics manager Bryan Kelley. “Being able to have children learn to swim the right way prevents future problems and tragedies. It’s important to be preventative.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

Joaquin Tellez-Vega brings legends back from the dead. He and his team of experts breathe roaring new life into rusty old relics from the golden age of auto design, sourcing parts from friends or the internet when possible, and rebuilding or fabricating everything else. The shop also lends its expertise to collision repair on newer (though more boring) cars.

History Joaquin, a native of Mexico City who came to Denver to be near his wife’s family, started out doing collision work. He founded Rocky Mountain Customs and Classics in 2013. The shop’s portfolio glitters with chrome and pastels, and includes projects as old as a 1924 Dodge Sedan 4-door and as muscular as a 1969 GT Torino.

Did you know? Joaquin’s team recently fabricated an entire floor panel for a 1956 Pontiac Star Chief ragtop

live music venue Platte River Bar & Grill 5995 S. Santa Fe Drive Littleton, CO 80120 theplatte.com 303-798-9356

Strike up the band, burgers What they do The pioneers who followed the Platte River to early Denver surely would have been pleased to spend an evening jamming out at the legendary Platte River Bar and Grill, with live music five nights a week, poker nights and a famous patio overlooking the cottonwoodlined river. An always-evolving menu features spicy Mexican favorites (try the Paparito), hefty burgers (try the Santa Fe Classic) and a mighty selection of beers, wines and cocktails sure to get the party going. This year’s music lineup includes Warrant and Dokken.

Did you know? The Platte is a favorite way to end the day for ‘tubers and kayakers floating down its namesake river.

He said it

History Founded in the mid-1980s when Santa Fe was still a two-lane lined with motels, the Platte has become a Littleton mainstay, growing and evolving with the city. Everyone from knitting circles and Bible study groups, to the Diablos and Hells Angels motorcycle clubs, call the Platte a home away from home.

schedule your tour today!

This is one of several open-air dining rooms at Platte River Bar and Grill.

“Our live music nights are an opportunity to see bands before they get big,” said marketing manager Christian Coulter. “When they get big, you can tell your friends, ‘I saw those guys at the Platte!’ It ain’t some guy with a ukulele he found at Garden of the Gods.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

Practice gets people moving What they do Lone Tree Physical Therapy isn’t a huge practice, but it gets huge results. Emphasizing hands-on, one-on-one treatment, Lone Tree doesn’t stick its patients with aides or assistants — they get the full attention of highlytrained physical therapists through their whole visit. Half of their business is through word of mouth. Owner Joe Patton and fellow therapists Tal Blair and Rachael Britton specialize in complex spine and joint orthopedic cases.

History Joe had years of experience as a physical therapist overseeing multiple clinics in several states, but realized that if you want something done right you’ve got to do it yourself. Joe, who also lives in Lone Tree, opened his practice in 2003, and says his practice is about as busy as his space will allow – though he doesn’t plan on moving anytime soon.

BRINGING WORLD CLASS CARE CLOSE TO HOME...

When it comes to ensuring picture-perfect health for you and your family, take a look at Sky Ridge Medical Center.

A helping hand for the little ones What they do

Mountainland Pediatrics 8889 Fox Dr. Thornton, CO 80260 mountainlandpeds.com 303-430-0823

Mountainland Pediatrics does more than make kids well – it makes them whole. Owned by Community Reach Center, Mountainland is a fully integrated mental and behavioral health center, too. Kids who need counseling or emotional health treatments can receive care in the same location where they get other booboos and owies taken care of. Mountainland also provides same-day sick-child appointments, and parents can page their pediatricians after hours.

History Community Reach Center bought the practice from retiring Dr. Betsy Spoerke in 2008, and began the process of integrating mental health care into the already thriving practice. Today, doctors Briana Oster and Starr Wedemeyer, as well as a slew of physicians’ assistants, nurse practitioners and mental health specialists, help kids inside and out.

In addition to treating physical ailments, Mountainland Pediatrics focuses on the mental and behavioral needs of patients. Courtesy photo

Did you know? Mountainland’s website is chock-full of resources on common and unusual childhood maladies, vaccination schedules, recommended reading and more.

She said it “No parent wants to think there’s something amiss with their child,” said Community Reach Center marketing manager Lindy Schultz. “Anything we can do as providers to make them feel comfortable in accessing those services, that’s a better outcome for the kid.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

A calming experience

Lisa Nation has been running Touch Massage Therapy since 2011.

What they do Miracles happen in Lisa Nation’s little office in an unassuming office building. Kids with ADHD are calmed. Blood pressure is reduced. Migraines are alleviated. Surgery recoveries are sped up – all through the magic touch of Lisa’s healing hands. Lisa practices a multimodal approach, including techniques like Swedish, pre-natal, deep tissue and neuromuscular massage, myofascial release, hot stone treatments and aromatherapy – all without upcharging for individual services.

History Lisa says she did 20 years of “hard time” working in IT before realizing she hated it. Growing up, she was always the caregiving type, rubbing necks and bandaging wounds at sporting events. When a friend bailed on the corporate world to pursue massage, Lisa followed suit. She graduated massage therapy school in Sep-

tember 2011 and opened her practice a month later. She says she feels like she hasn’t worked a day since.

Did you know? Lisa’s Italian greyhound Calley has been known to climb up on the table to cuddle with willing patients.

The Gnarly Root Story

Created by a local Parker, Colorado family, The Gnarly Root is a unique concept focused on fresh healthy meals, showcasing local talent, and bringing the community together. “We wanted a place for the community to gather and enjoy one another’s company and provide a safe place to come and play music, show off your art work, read poetry, hold meetings, or just relax. Our family has meat eaters, gluten intolerant, and vegan members. Needless to say, someone wasn’t going to be happy going out to eat. As this became an increasing problem we knew that bringing a restaurant to the community that can cover all the dietary needs was a must! We set out to find our home right off of E470 and Parker Road, which opened up our concept to many other cities, towns, and communities. We are so excited at the positive response we have gotten and can’t wait to be your healthy food getaway for years to come!”

Tapping into something special What they do

Barnett and Son Brewing Co. 18425 Pony Express Dr. Parker, CO 80134 barnettandsonbrewing.com 720-420-0462

The son of Barnett and Son may not be old enough to legally drink yet, but he’s already spent years helping his old man produce award-winning libations. Andrew Barnett, the elder, and Robert, the younger (who just finished his sophomore year at Chaparral High School), say guests in their tap room can expect sociable session beers, not so high-alcohol that you can only knock back one before ending up schnockered. Newlin Gulch Gold is the big seller, and the seasonal blueberry ale is on tap all summer – perfect for knocking back on the dog-friendly patio. Also, there are growlers-to-go and food trucks Wednesday through Saturday.

History Andrew’s been home-brewing for ages, and so many friends kept begging him for batches that he ditched the corporate world to go pro.

Robert drew his first logo for his dad at age 4, and added the “and Son,” which stuck. Andrew opened the taproom’s doors last June.

Did you know? Barnett and Son snagged a couple awards at this year’s Denver International Beer Competition – a silver for their Saoirse Irish Red Ale and a gold for their Mo Chroi Irish Black Ale.

He said it “It’s almost like my previous life never existed,” Andrew Barnett said. “You won’t find us in bars or liquor stores, but that’s coming soon.” — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

A cool way to earn a living

Justin Couball started his business five years ago. Courtesy photo

What they do Right up there with plumbers, car mechanics and roofers, most people cringe at calling an HVAC repairman — you’re at their mercy, after all. Thankfully, Justin Couball is pretty darn merciful. As a married homeowner himself, Justin says he empathizes with his customers and prides himself on honest work and pricing. Justin and his right-hand man, Kip Conserriere, with cumulative decades of experience between them, cover a territory stretching from Littleton to Aurora to Denver and Franktown and beyond. Their dozens of glowing online reviews speak to their integrity and trustworthiness.

History Justin spent many years working in heavy industrial settings and started doing home HVAC repair after hours. He started his business five years ago and went full time in 2014. Initially, he hired four young guys to help out, but soon found that Kip could do all four of

their jobs and more. Today, Justin and Kip are busily building a fiercely loyal customer base, and lots of their work comes from undoing the shoddy jobs done by big-name companies.

Did you know? Justin recently met with a customer who had saved up all winter to replace an AC unit that a big company told him was doomed. The customer was thrilled when Justin told him the problem was nothing more than a busted capacitor, and had him keepin’ it cool in no time.

He said it “Every job I do will make or break my next job,” Justin said. — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media

Family business packs protein power What they do Sure, everybody’s crazy about bacon these days, but how many have had the real deal? Wheat Ridge Poultry and Meats prepares, smokes and slices theirs in-house, and it’s available in flavors like jalapeño red pepper. It’s nearly impossible to leave the shop without an armload of delicious meals-to-be, including grass-finished steaks, free-range chicken, fresh frozen pasta, locally made pickles and jams, and a growing list of seafood.

History The shop started as an egg farm on the corner of 29th and Depew in 1942. Over time, the farm was converted to a shopping center and the product line was increased.  Wheat Ridge Poultry and Meats has been family owned and operated since day one, and is run by the second generation of the Bobitsky family.

Wheat Ridge Poultry and Meats has been family owned since its opening in 1942.

Courtesy photo

Did you know? The stainless steel cabinets behind the meat counter are now used for storage, but they once held eggs that dropped from a nesting area above the shop.

She said it “We look forward to continuing to serve the local community for years to come,” owner Jessica Bobitsky said. — David Gilbert | Special to Colorado Community Media
