In our newest video, “Farm to Freestone,” we invite you along to see just how meals, and people, come together at Victory Ranch. Filmed this past January, the video follows Victory Ranch’s Executive Chef Adam Price as he prepares for a Freestone Friday dinner and reveals a thoughtfulness that begins well before a table is set or a drink is poured.
In addition to being surrounded by a number of world-class ski destinations and an array of outdoor recreation for all seasons, Victory Ranch also enjoys close proximity to a vibrant agricultural community that cares deeply about quality and sustainable practices. Small farms, like Gold Creek Farms, located just seven miles from Victory Ranch, bring an artisan approach to their craft that has earned them international praise.
For Adam, these local farms are treated as a precious resource. “When I plan menus for Freestone Friday, I plan them with the anticipation of using local products—cheese, beef and vegetables—that come out of this community,” says Adam.
“Because we in the kitchen know where [our food] comes from, I think it’s treated with that much more integrity and respect,” adds Adam, who personally visits the farms and those who tend them. “It gives me a lot of pride to be able to incorporate the local economy into what we do here at Victory Ranch.”
Freestone Friday is our weekly club dinner designed around a chef-inspired menu and held at the Freestone Lodge. It’s here where glasses “clink” beside the crackling fire, or outside under the stars, as members and their guests share a multi-course meal while recounting the week’s adventures and planning new ones.
