When you think of Colorado, most likely you envision majestic mountain ranges and glitzy ski resorts, not agritourism. However, the diverse agriculture business, that is fundamental to Colorado, is not so well known and even more interesting. Cattle ranching was one of the first industries in Colorado and has withstood the test of time. When the gold rush busted in the late 1800s or didn’t pan out, cattle ranching became the fallback way of living and is still thriving today.
Colorado has diverse geology that spans untouchable wilderness to very fertile valleys. There are banana belt areas that produce some of our country’s best peaches, host vineyards, and grow corn and other vegetable staples.
With all the tourism already flocking to Colorado and the increased interest in “farm to table” or organic produce. Colorado’s farmers are opening their barn doors so to speak and engaging tourists in the concept of agritourism.
Agritourism can mean farm field trips where you can engage in an educational component of farming. Learn how produce is grown or take a hay ride around the farm.
Sign up to pick apples or vegetables right out of the field. Or, experience the exhilaration of going through the corn maze. Pumpkin patches are big and orange in the fall. Are you ready for your personal pumpkin selection right off of the vine?
Agritourism is just one more amazing aspect that Colorado has to enhance your vacation experience.
