There’s Something Special About These 17 Colorado Farms From The Past

Agriculture is a huge industry in Colorado. In fact, no matter where you are in the state (Eastern Plains, Western Slope, cities, or down south), you are guaranteed to find thriving crop and/or livestock.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

As always, we would like to give a big thank you to our friends at History Colorado for allowing us to share these wonderful photos. Do you have memories of growing up on a farm? Tell us in the comments!
