Local egg farmers invite Coloradans to celebrate Colorado Proud month

Friday, August 23, 2013

DENVER – August 2013 - 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, wants to remind Coloradans that in addition to seasonal fruits and vegetables, eggs are a food staple that shoppers can buy locally and enjoy year-round.

“Thinking about where food comes and buying locally is top-of-mind for many people today,” said Mike Surles, local egg farmer and CEP member. “This is the perfect time of year to celebrate the bounty of Colorado-produced food available at grocery stores, farmers’ markets and restaurants across the state. Colorado eggs are a wonderful example. When you purchase locally produced eggs, you are not only getting high-quality fresh products, you are also supporting Colorado's farmers, ranchers, processors and the state’s economy.”

Buy local year round and support Colorado egg farmers

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.”
