The Colorado Farm & Food Alliance networks family farms, winemakers, brewers, food producers, chefs and restaurateurs to cultivate and strengthen the local food movement, to support sustainable rural communities, and to provide a platform for effective climate and conservation advocacy.
The Colorado Farm & Food Alliance provides information about Colorado agriculture and food economies, and highlights the nexus between securing those values and implementing sound land use, energy, conservation and climate policy.

Statement of Purpose
“Healthy lands and clean water protect Colorado’s farms, food, and drink. “
Strengthening local food systems means safeguarding the health of the land and supplies of clean water, and it means addressing long-term sustainability issues including climate change.
Our partners and supporters are businesses and associations, family farms and markets, local restaurants and producers, rural food and economic groups, and others that understand protecting Colorado’s environment protects our family farm and local food economy.
We seek to strengthen Colorado’s local food movement, and to connect its rural and urban communities from “farm to table.” We seek to cultivate climate and conservation action and to bring wholesome, locally sourced food and drink to Coloradans across the state.
“Eat Local ~ Think Global ~ Act Now”
Make a contribution to Colorado’s sustainable farm and food future.
Our combined voice can support our local farm and food economy, amplify and support climate action, and help ensure that clean water and healthy land are made a priority when managing for oil and gas development in Colorado so that our farmlands and clean water are not harmed.
