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.”
