To celebrate the Follow Your Fruits & Veggies Journey, Colorado Proud hosted a Culmination Lunch at the History Colorado Center on August 29. We invited local producers, key industry influencers and media to enjoy a menu built on ingredients sourced only from Colorado. Throughout the first course, Colorado Proud hosted a panel to discuss the current state of agriculture in Colorado and many key topics within the industry; our panelists included: Jim Ehrlich, Colorado Potato Administrative Committee; Max Fields, Fields to Plate Produce; Michael Hirakata, Hirakata Farms; Kate Petrocco, Petrocco Farms; James Plate, Fields to Plate Produce; and Jerry Tinianow, City and County of Denver. It was the perfect end to a wonderful month of celebrating local produce and a big thank you to all those who made the Follow Your Fruits & Veggies Journey possible.
