Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Believe it or not, the holiday season is upon us! For many, this time of year means festive family gatherings, unique traditions and of course, all types of holiday treats. Holiday baking is a favorite tradition for many families and the incredible, edible egg is a central ingredient in nearly every dessert recipe. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association would like to share some helpful tips for baking at high altitude, a problem many Coloradans face during the holiday season.

“Locally produced eggs from Colorado can be used in holiday baking recipes,” said Chef Jason Morse, CEP partner and owner of 5280 Culinary, LLC. “From gingerbread cookies to eggnog to Christmas morning casseroles, eggs are very versatile and contain almost every essential vitamin and mineral the body needs. Including eggs in your holiday baking means your family is eating healthy, nutritional ingredients.”  

Colorado Egg Farmers Join The Fight Against Hunger This Thanksgiving

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

For many people, Thanksgiving represents a time to celebrate and reflect on the blessings we have to be grateful for while enjoying delicious food in the company of family and friends. For some though, Thanksgiving is another day spent worrying about where their next meal will come from. This holiday season, Colorado egg farmers are committed to helping Coloradans in need through egg donations to Feeding Colorado food banks. The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association encourages you to join in the fight against hunger in our state.

According to Feeding America, one in eight Americans struggle with hunger. Across the United States, that equates to 48.1 million people including 13.1 million children. The most recent data shows that one in seven Coloradans worry about where they will find food for their next meal and sadly, nearly half are children, according to the Food Bank of the Rockies.

YES on Amendment 71

Saturday, October 29, 2016

It is not often that CEP takes a position on political issues affecting our state, but we are compelled to stand up and support with a resounding “YES”, Amendment 71 (Raise the Bar)!

Why do we care so much?
If this measure passes it would offer rural Colorado a voice in how our state’s future is molded. It will allow Colorado farmers and ranchers to be heard when it comes to potential issues that might impact our state, our way of life and our ability to provide safe, high quality food to Coloradans. For more information on this measure, visit www.raisethebarco.com. Thank you for your consideration and vote “YES” on 71.
