Website helps Colo. shoppers buy local this holiday season | Community Spirit
Whether you are looking for that perfect gift, a special ingredient for your holiday meal or a shapely tree to grace your home, the Colorado Department of Agriculture has online resources to help you find what you need this holiday season.
The Colorado Food and Agriculture Gift Guide and the Christmas Tree List help shoppers connect with local producers.“Look for the Colorado Proud logo and buy local this holiday season,” said Commissioner of Agriculture, John Salazar. “Buying local products helps support Colorado’s farmers, ranchers, processors, restaurants and ultimately the state’s economy.”
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.
