Annual Publication Provides Marketing Opportunity for Local Producers
BROOMFIELD, Colo. – For more than three decades, the Colorado Farm Fresh Directory has been connecting consumers with local producers. 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 2015 edition is being organized, and producers are encouraged to submit their information for inclusion.
“The Colorado Farm Fresh Directory is a great way for agricultural producers to market their products,” said Wendy White, marketing specialist at the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “Coloradans and tourists alike look forward to this publication every year.”
More than 100,000 copies of the publication will be distributed in June to consumers through libraries, extension offices, farmers’ markets, welcome centers, chambers of commerce and other businesses. In addition, Farm Fresh will be available as a mobile app for smartphones. The 2015 Farm Fresh will also be available on the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s website, www.coloradoagriculture.com.  
The fee to be included in the directory is $25, and the listing deadline is February 28, 2015. For more information or to request a listing form, contact Loretta Lopez at (303) 869-9175 or visit www.coloradoagriculture.com.
