Support local farming and food producers engaging in the Roaring Fork Valley’s food, culinary, and agritourism industry.
Provide grants to local agricultural and food producers whose mission, values, and practices support the needs of the Roaring Fork Valley. These producers have a demonstrated need and plan for the implementation of the grant to enhance local food, agricultural and/or agritourism. The goal is to work with valley partners to keep our local farms in the valley and support our agricultural heritage.
Funds for Roaring Fork Roots will come from a variety of sources including special events, curated offerings, sponsorship, and private donors.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the inaugural Ride the Ranches – a benefit for the Roaring Fork Roots Fund. Stay tuned for 2024 dates and event information.
The Roaring Fork & Farm Map is a printed pocket guide to the Valley’s experiences that include guest ranches, public gardens and visitor-ready farms, visitor attractions, along with specific restaurants, food outlets, and producers that were identified as “local food champions” for their noted efforts and relationships that support local and regional Colorado farmers through menu items and culinary offerings.
