Seeking affordable living in an outdoor space, avid mountain bikers and partners Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller found themselves in Fruita, Colorado, a town once known as being one of the most conservative in the state. Despite a lukewarm welcome, the two decided to open a restaurant to traveling river tourists—the Hot Tomato. 

Life of Pie is a film by Ben Knight and Travis Rummel in partnership with Patagonia about Jen Zeuner, Anne Keller, and the mountain bike community in Fruita.
