We exist to manifest the power of local food in our region.


We exist to enliven Northern Colorado’s food system, growing it to be more productive, accessible and secure.


We see a future where our local food system is nourishing the well-being of our region and all who live within it, restoring connections to fuel a vibrant and dynamic community.


Our projects, programs, and collaborations are all focused on expanding the capacity of our food system and empowering those within it.

 The Plan

We work to develop a dynamic plan to get to 10% of agricultural products in Northern Colorado being sold and consumed locally.  We’ll get there with a comprehensive, adaptive and collaborative approach.
