Buy local year round and support Colorado egg farmers

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Palisade peaches, Rocky Ford melons and Olathe sweet corn are just a few of the locally produced fruits and vegetables that have been tickling our taste buds this season. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association, a membership organization representing seven farms, would like to remind you that in addition to seasonal fruits and vegetables, there are main food staples – including eggs – which you can buy locally and enjoy all year round.

“Thinking about where your food comes and buying locally is certainly top of mind for everyone today,” explained Jerry Wilkins, president of CEP. “This is the perfect time and the ideal season to celebrate the bounty of Colorado agriculture available at grocery stores, farmers’ markets and restaurants across the state. Colorado eggs are a wonderful example. When you purchase Colorado food and agricultural products, such as eggs, you are not only getting high quality fresh products, you are also supporting Colorado's farmers, ranchers, processors and the state economy.”

As a fitness and nutrition journalist, he has studied and learned from the best experts in the world and is one of the most respected sources in the industry.

With that said, Adam's good cholesterol went up, bad cholesterol went down, body weight stayed the same, and body fat decreased slightly. Adam can now say that he considers eggs to be a health food.

Nearly 500,000 chickens lost in fire near Roggen; Egg prices expected to hold steady

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Colorado lost about one-eighth of its egg production in a Weld County fire Monday that claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 hens.

However, the extensive loss from the blaze at the Boulder Valley Poultry farm near Roggen is not expected to increase egg prices at grocery stores in the region, industry experts said Tuesday.

Jerry Wilkins, president of the Colorado Egg Producers Association, said that because egg demand is typically low this time of the year, and because many other local producers have agreed to step up in response to Boulder Valley’s losses, the effects of this week’s fire are expected to be minimal.“That’s about the only good news to come out of this,” Wilkins said. “It was a terrible event otherwise. “We’re very sorry for their loss.” To read more, click here.
