This video was taken at Hearthstone Restaurant in Breckenridge, a ski town in one of the Colorado's popular ski areas. It is the end of April and the ski season is coming to a close.
The restaurant was perfect for sharing the Mountain River Venison story, meeting the team, and celebrating with valued market partners.
Donald Whyte showed the wait staff videos and photos on his iPad of his home farm and the farming of New Zealand deer.
The young man in the video had worked in Wanaka previously. He was interested in learning more about Mountain River Venison. Looking at the pictures on Donald's iPad, he remarks that it makes him realise how much he misses New Zealand. Donald lets him know jokingly that "there's still time!"
The wait staff lets the team know more about Heartstone's history. It was the first place in Breckenridge to have running water and electricity. During the gold rush era, Hearthstone was one of the top butcheries and was very popular among the miners.
Angus proposes a toast to Steve Hauff for his 20-plus years of wonderful friendship and support of Mountain River Venison. He tells Steve, "Thank you for everything, including bringing wonderful clients like Hearthstone to Mountain River Venison." Steve Hauff of Prairie Harvest is a long-term Mountain River Venison distributor and operates the account.
At the end of the video, when John asks Donald how the creme brulee was, Donald answers that consistency was fine, and the tap was fine, but not as good as his wife's!
