Not many people have a story quite like us...
Motherlode Provisions was born out of a tragedy, the Fourmile Fire of 2010. We were given fifteen minutes to gather our belongings and evacuate our hometown of Gold Hill, Colorado. Ten days later when we were allowed back, the town hosted a fundraiser and we were approached to cater. Leland set up the smoker and we made a feast of home-smoked pork and barbecue sauce from scratch. We bottled up the extra BBQ sauce and sold it alongside the sandwiches, both of which were a tremendous hit. Throughout the day, customers returned with incredible praise we couldn’t ignore.
We began with our home kitchen, inkjet-printed labels, and a single barbeque sauce. Six years later and we’ve extended our product line to include all natural, preservative-free Rocky Mountain Barbecue Sauce, Sweet Honey Lavender Barbecue Sauce, Sweet and Smoky Barbecue Sauce, Wildfire Hot Sauce, Rocky Mountain Hot Sauce, and Steak Sauce. Along the way, a product created on a whim has become our flagship offering: Motherlode Provisions Bloody Mary Mix. While all of our products have been met with admiration, our Bloody Mary mix has ignited a particularly strong following. It is best served alongside a campfire or accompanying views of the Rocky Mountain alpenglow. It really has the power to make every night a Sunday morning.
As we expand our distribution we continue to push the flavor boundaries and produce bold products. We are firm believers in local business and giving back to the community. Among the many amazing Colorado brands we’ve found a few extraordinary gems, resulting in partnerships. Try out some of the following with our Bloody Mary Mix: DUKES Freshly Crafted Smoked Meats, Breckenridge Distillery Liquor, Tillen Farms Pickled Products, Arta Tequila, and Golden Moon Distillery Liquor.
Keep checking back for more updates. Spoiler alert: Motherlode Provisions will begin its newest chapter in restaurant form VERY soon!
