The Crew


Brook & Terri Penquite

We’ve been living plant-based for over 12 years. Our passion for gathering friends and family to share our love of food has allowed us to hone in on our craft.  Having spent our careers in the restaurant, wine, and hospitality industries, we’re thrilled to finally bring our own labor of love to life. We’re both passionate about all animal welfare and nature conservation.

Our motley crew at home includes our dog Benny and bunny Lola.


Casey Dixon

I was born in Durango and grew up in South Lake Tahoe. The past several years were spent in Santa Cruz, CA where I graduated college at UC Santa Cruz.  I worked in the restaurant industry for the past 10 years, initially working my way through college. Having spent time both tending bar and in the kitchen, I’ve learned the ins and outs of the craft beer scene and dialing in on the nuances the restaurant business.  After graduation, I spent time as a manager at West End Tap & Kitchen, where I created the tap list of tasty local beers.  I’m super excited to be back in Durango for the great skiing, biking & golf and to share my passion with the guests at Basecamp.
