Colorado’s agricultural industry consistently earns its ranking as one of the state’s top-three leading 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 $41 billion to the state’s economy annually; and feeding the world with more than $2 billion in exported products.  Colorado also ranks in the top 10 nationally, for production of a variety of agricultural products.  Buying local has proved its positive impact on the economy, environment, healthy lifestyle and Colorado’s western heritage.
