The family behind Snow Creek Ranch strives to make restaurant-quality steaks available to the public by selling its free-range, hormone-free beef at area farmers’ markets. In addition to grazing its Black Angus cattle on 2,500 acres of indigenous, pesticide-free prairie grasses, the family also supplements the herds’ diets with natural flax seed oils, creating tender, marbled beef. Dedicated to ensuring quality, the family dry-ages all of its steaks for 21 days and claims that “Grandma kisses every cow” to check whether it’s actually a handsome prince.
When brothers Joseph and Herb Guiry founded the paint store that bears their name, Denver was still an untamed frontier town, William McKinley was President, and the flag still had 45 stars and not a single cartoon dog. The year was 1899, and, in the hundred-plus years since, the store has remained a family tradition across four generations of shopkeepers. Today, the store’s seven locations carry paints for everything from houses to school projects, and supplement their stock with home decorations including lighting, wallpaper, and furniture.
