Lafayette-based business Door to Door Organics has been named Company of the Year by Naturally Boulder, a nonprofit organization working to enhance Boulder’s natural product industry.
In line with the popular farm-to-table movement, Door to Door Organics partners with farmers to bring fresh produce and natural groceries like locally sourced eggs, gourmet cheeses and humanely raised meats straight to homes, offices and schools.
Naturally Boulder Board President Doug Radi pointed to a commitment to health, the environment and conscientious business practices as the key qualifications that made Door to Door Organics its choice.
The award comes on the heels of Door to Door’s August announcement that it would receive a $2 million investment from Boulder’s Greenmont Capital, and its designation as a B Corporation. The designation places Door to Door among a group of companies that meet standards of social and environmental performance.

OLD CHICAGO PUTS HALLOWEEN INTO BEERS
Wychwood Hobgoblin, Newcastle Werewolf and Rogue Dead Guy might sound like interesting Halloween costumes, but they are actually seasonal beers offered by Old Chicago as part of its Halloween Mini Beer tour.
Eight specialty, seasonal beers will be available to customers at Old Chicago through Halloween.
Members of the Old Chicago World Beer Tour won’t just walk away with a buzz, but will also receive a special mini tour T-shirt with glow-in-the-dark Halloween graphics.
In addition to the three Halloween-inspired flavors, five other brews will be offered in the mini tour, including KBCO 35th Anniversary Ale, Left Hand Pumpkin Beer, Woodchuck Seasonal Cider, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale and Widmer Brothers Pitch Black IPA.
