Gift and Christmas tree guides available

Two online guides put together by the Colorado Department of Agriculture offer assistance in connecting producers and holiday shoppers.

The Colorado Food and Agriculture Gift Guide lists companies that sell everything from fresh produce to gourmet gift baskets. The Colorado Christmas Tree List identifies locations at which consumers can find Christmas trees, including u-cut operations and information on cutting trees in national forests.

John Salazar, state agriculture commissioner, urges holiday shoppers to consider Colorado products. “You make a difference when you choose Colorado. I encourage you to look for the Colorado Proud logo and buy local wherever you shop or dine.”
