White Fence Farm prepares to close at the end of the year

Multiple reports say White Fence Farm, which has been a staple in the Lakewood community for decades, is set to close its doors Dec. 30.

Restaurant owner Craig Caldwell said in a statement that White Fence Farm has been operating at a net monthly loss for a considerable amount of time.

“Efforts to create a profitable operation were not successful, and we can no longer operate in this capacity,” Caldwell stated.

With new restaurants sprouting up in Colorado regularly, White Fence Farm has been struggling to keep up. Caldwell said the hospitality industry along the Front Range has dealt with labor shortage in recent years.

The business did not respond to requests for additional comment.

The restaurant specialized in fried chicken, and it has been part of the Lakewood community since 1973. It has a year-round Christmas shop, carriage rides, animals and more. The animals at the restaurant have been adopted, and they're set to be relocated once the establishment closes, according to multiple media reports.

White Fence Farm will operate during its regular hours until closing day.
