Colorado Egg Producers play a part in Ag Day at the Capitol success

The “most popular event under the Golden Dome” was once again a success, as Gov. John Hickenlooper, state officials, the media and others took part in a well-deserved “thank you” to Colorado’s farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses during Agriculture Day at the Capitol on Wednesday.

And it will be done largely with the help of Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) personnel. 

CEP Industry Relations Manager David Collie, who also owns and operates Collie Consulting LLC, is taking the lead among the 48 organizations that make up the Colorado Ag Council and organize the event, while CEP Executive Director Bill Scebbi, CEP Outreach Events Coordinator and CEP board mmber Terry Tormohlen were also on hand to help out.

With an estimated 900 people in attendance, the event was highlighted by a cook-off competition that featured the teaming up of local chefs, lawmakers and ag representatives, creating dishes with Colorado-grown foods.

The CEP team took second place overall in the 14-team cook-off competition, under the guidance of chefs Klaus Krebs and Travis Barday of Isle Casino and Hotel.

For many Americans, Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends around a delicious meal and celebrate the many blessings the past year has brought. Thanksgiving also marks the season of giving, a time to serve those less fortunate in our communities. With many of us giving thanks for another great year, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association encourages everyone to help those that may not have a Thanksgiving meal this year.

According to Feeding America, around 6.2 million households across the United States received aid from food banks in 2012. 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.

Colorado egg farmers invite Coloradans to celebrate Colorado Proud Month

Friday, August 22, 2014

DENVER – August 2014 – Colorado is a powerhouse of agriculture, bringing delicious, healthy produce such as Palisade peaches, Rocky Ford melons and Olathe sweet corn to Coloradans’ 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 a high priority for many people today,” said Jerry Wilkins, president of CEP. “By purchasing Colorado-produced food, available at grocery stores, farmers’ markets and restaurants across the state, Coloradans can trust that they are getting quality food while supporting local producers. For 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.”
