The Western Colorado Food and Farm Forum is a committee organized annual conference. Each year staff members from our hosting agencies and other interested professionals provide their time, skills and knowledge to plan and execute a two-day conference on the latest and most relevant agricultural and food system issues to the regional community.  The hosting agencies for the 10th annual Western Food & Farm Forum are: Colorado State University Extension, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, the Shavano Conservation District, Coldharbour Institute, Valley Organic Growers Association and the Valley Food Partnership.

The 10th annual Western Colorado Food and Farm Forum will take place on January 21-22, 2022. Tap into a wide array of breakout sessions that convey vital, regionally specific agricultural information in areas including weather ready fields,  ranching with wolves, specialty crops, farm succession planning, farmer and rancher stress management, and much more.

Who should attend? The conference is for anyone with an interest in the future of agriculture, including: ranchers, farmers, gardeners, students and ag professionals. Whether you’re looking to improve or innovate your existing practices, the forum has myriad resources and networking opportunities.
