Feb. 16 deadline for Farm Fresh Directory
Colorado growers can market their products to consumers statewide through the Colorado Farm Fresh Directory. Listings are being accepted for the 2007 edition, which the Colorado Department of Agriculture publishes annually to promote Colorado farmers’ markets, roadside stands, agritourism activities and farms that sell direct to the public.
“The Farm Fresh Directory is a great way for Colorado growers to direct market their products,” said Wendy White, marketing specialist at the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “It is one of our most popular publications and consumers look forward to the new edition every year.”
The fee to be included in the directory is $25 and the deadline is Feb. 16, 2007. Listing forms are available at Colorado State University Cooperative Extension offices, by calling the Colorado Department of Agriculture at (303) 239-4115 or by visiting http://www.coloradoagriculture.com.
The directory will be available in June and is free to consumers. Nearly 90,000 copies of the publication will be distributed through libraries, extension offices, bookstores, farmers’ markets, welcome centers, chambers of commerce and home milk delivery services.
In addition to the printed directory, the 2007 Farm Fresh will also be available on the Internet. This is the 23rd edition of the directory. For more information, please call (303) 239-4115 or visit http://www.coloradoagriculture.com.
