Across the nation, family farms and ranches, historic barns and other agricultural sites are disappearing at an alarming rate. In Colorado, the family farm and working cattle ranch serve as a reminder of how the West was settled.
The contributions of Colorado's ranching and farming families have withstood the pressures of growth, changes in farming methods, drought, and economic conditions to preserve these important pieces of our state's commercial and cultural history.
Join us at the 2018 Centennial Farm & Ranches ceremony to honor the contributions of families who have owned and operated their farm or ranch for 100 years or more.
This year's ceremony will take place at the Weatherport Tent at 1:00 p.m.
