The White Fence Farm of Colorado

You have to eat at this restaurant!   I, Zeb the Duck, went to the White Fence Farm for dinner.

The food was great, but even if it wasn’t, this place has so much to see.

I went with Soapy Smith Duck, little Pumpkin Duck and our moms.   The front yard of this farm style restaurant has a gazebo,

We really liked this delivery truck for White Fence Farm.

This restaurant opened in 1973, as “Wilson’s Good Eating” and was an immediate success.   They added a Country Cottage to give diners an opportunity to shop before and after dinner. Country Cottage is still there and so is Giggleblossom Cottage.

In 1981, Wilson’s Good Eating made an agreement with the White Fence Farm Restaurant near Joliet, Illinois.   The menu was simplified, the award winning chicken recipe was served and the OK Corral was built.   Denver’s White Fence Farm was created.   At the OK Corral, we fed and touched the animals.

We love these animals.

After all the animal contact, the humans needed to wash their hands.

Always wash your hands.

Around the farm we found a 1925 Ford Model T one ton truck.

This truck cost $1,300 when it was new.  It did not have a gas gauge.   A stick inserted in the gas tank showed how much fuel you had.   We liked this old farm equipment.  This Rest Haven was Out of Order.

Inside the farmhouse, or restaurant, we found many dining rooms.   Each was friendly, cozy and very nice.   While waiting to be seated, some people sat in this area.

We had the famous country fried chicken.  Yum.  The chicken dinner has 4 pieces, or ½ a chicken. The waitress placed a big plate with 8 pieces of fried chicken on the table.   Everything was delicious.

After dinner, we visited the Americana Barn.  The barn is huge and attached to the restaurant.  There is an indoor play area for small children. The Carriage House has the Hen House Five entertaining.

You will love them.  There is also an indoor stage, called the Front Porch Stage, featuring live entertainment.

Tables are here and you can purchase snacks and beverages while you are entertained.  There is so much to see and do at The White Fence Farm that you will want to return often.   And, the food is excellent.  For more information visit www.whitefencefarm-co.com
