What Agriculture Means to our State
Colorado’s agriculture industry consistently earns its ranking as one of the state’s top industries, advancing the state’s economy and preserving the environment. In fact, with more than 36,000 farms encompassing 31 million acres, agriculture is a vital part of Colorado — providing more than 172,000 jobs; contributing more than $40 billion to the state’s economy annually; and feeding the world with more than $2 billion in exported products.
Buying local has proved its positive impact on the economy, environment, healthy lifestyle and Colorado’s western heritage.
