Chef Alex Seidel opened Fruition Restaurant in 2007. With its seasonally driven menu of upscale comfort food and a well-curated wine list, it was an instant success. While the ubiquitous term "farm-to-table" is now overused, Seidel set the bar high when he started his own 10-acre farm south of Denver, where much of Fruition's produce, cheese and meat products are grown, made and raised. But trendy descriptors are not what Seidel is about. Rather, he's about relationships. Fruition Farms has been what he calls an education in understanding how to grow crops, make cheese and raise animals and how to harvest these foods. "Farm-to-table," Seidel says, "is all of those processes and understanding what goes into the relationship between producer and end user. This hands-on experience has helped us create a viable, long-lasting relationship between farm and restaurant."
