Growers can market their products to consumers statewide through the annual Colorado Farm Fresh Directory. Published by the Colorado Department of Agriculture, Farm Fresh promotes Colorado farmers' markets, roadside stands, u-picks, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) producers, agritourism activities and farms and ranches that sell direct to the public. The 2017 edition is being organized, and producers are encouraged to submit their information for inclusion.
"Farm Fresh continues to be our most popular consumer publication," said Wendy White, marketing specialist at the Colorado Department of Agriculture. "It is a great way for producers to market their products and for consumers to find local foods."
Nearly 100,000 copies of the publication will be distributed in June to consumers through libraries, extension offices, farmers' markets, welcome centers, chambers of commerce, home milk delivery services and other businesses. In addition, Farm Fresh will be available as a mobile app for smartphones and online at www.coloradoagriculture.com.
The fee to be included in the directory is $25, and the listing deadline is February 15, 2017. For more information or to request a listing form, contact Loretta Lopez at (303) 869-9175 or visit www.coloradoagriculture.com.
