Many times we are misunderstood because the name Colorado Farm Bureau is somewhat of a misnomer. We aren’t a “bureau.” We are much more than “farms,” and we represent all Coloradans.
At its heart, Colorado Farm Bureau exists to insure the success of farming, ranching and our shared rural heritage in the state of Colorado.
Founded in 1919 by a group of farmers, ranchers, veterinarians, rural doctors, shopkeepers and tradesmen, the Colorado Farm Bureau sought to protect the Colorado Way of Life and insure that generations of Coloradans could grow up to know what a special place our state is.
Despite our differences, agriculture is our common bond. It makes no difference whether you live in the city, or suburbs and only think about agriculture when you fly over it. You need agriculture as much as it needs you.
If you like to eat, drink and drive your car every day, you have a vested interest in the success or failure of family farms and ranches in this state. For generations the Colorado farms and ranches have produced the safe, wholesome food that feeds Colorado families every day.
Colorado Farm Bureau wants to keep it that way. We work to preserve the Colorado Way of Life.
