The Colorado Department of Agriculture has online resources to help you find holiday gifts, meal ingredients and the perfect tree this holiday season. The Colorado Food and Agriculture Gift Guide and the Christmas Tree List help shoppers connect with local producers.
“Buying locally for the holidays is a great way to support Colorado producers as well as the state’s economy,” said Commissioner of Agriculture John Salazar. “I encourage you to look for the Colorado Proud logo and buy local wherever you shop or dine.”
The Colorado Food and Agriculture Gift Guide lists companies that sell items ranging from gourmet baskets filled with sweets and snacks to mouth-watering meats and fresh produce. The Christmas Tree List identifies locations where individuals can find the perfect tree for their families. The directory includes u-cut operations and information on cutting trees at national forests.
