Colorado Farm Bureau’s mission is to preserve and protect the future of agriculture and rural values.
Founded in 1919 by a group of farmers, ranchers, veterinarians, rural doctors, shopkeepers and tradesmen, the Colorado Farm Bureau sought to protect the Colorado Way of Life and ensure that generations of Coloradans could grow up to know what a special place our state is.
Colorado Farm Bureau wants to keep it that way. We work to preserve the Colorado Way of Life.
Colorado Farm Bureau’s “Ag in Motion” program offers educational lessons and hands-on activities that increase agricultural literacy for children ages 8-12 years old.
From school visits and county fairs to festivals and other events, the Ag in Motion trailer is designed to be versatile – it can be used at an all-day event, or even for just an afternoon for 2-3 hours. The trailer houses five educational “barns” that can be customized to display any combination of our 14 topics in agriculture:
Sheep and wool
Chickens and eggs
Colorado Fruits and Vegetables
Every lesson is purposefully aligned to Colorado State Standards and Common Core to ensure that what the children learn fits right in with curriculum that teachers use in the classroom.
