Robert Sakata

Robert is a Colorado native and owner of Sakata Farms in Brighton, Colorado, started in 1945 by his father. The operation has grown to 2500 acres, growing fresh-market cabbage, dry bulb onions, sweet corn, pinto beans, field corn and winter wheat.

Robert attended the University of Colorado Boulder and worked for AmGen in their molecular biology research department. Returning to the farm in 1989, Robert has worked to encourage the shrinking farm community to become more involved in the many issues they face.

To that end, Robert served for 15 years on the State of Colorado’s Water Quality Control Commission, appointed by three consecutive governors. He served as the Adams County Farm Bureau president, as well as on the Adams County Open Space Advisory Committee. Currently, he is on two local ditch boards, serves as the agricultural representative on the metro roundtable, is a member of the Colorado Ag Water Alliance and sits on the Board of Directors of the Colorado Water Congress.
