Local products enhance holiday celebrations
Looking for ingredients for your holiday meal? Trying to find a unique gift for that special person? Or searching for the perfect tree? The Colorado Department of Agriculture has online resources to help shoppers find what they need this holiday season. The Colorado Food and Agriculture Gift Guide and the Christmas Tree List help shoppers connect with local producers.
“What better way to celebrate the holidays than with Colorado products,” said Commissioner of Agriculture, John Stulp. “When you purchase Colorado food and agricultural products you are not only getting high quality gifts, you are also supporting 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 candy and chips to mouth-watering steaks and juicy apples. 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.
