“Connecting Colorado’s Ag Experiences”
To be the leading provider of agritourism support and outreach to producers in the state of Colorado
Empowering Colorado producers to build and diversify economic strength through agritourism
We are growers and producers like you and understand the challenges facing people in agriculture. We know that keeping your lands in ag and in the family are top priorities for most of you, and that today’s business world is not always friendly for farmers and ranchers.
We know that you have to compete locally and globally with many other types of businesses for the consumer dollar and respect within your community.
We are here to listen to you, build programs, and provide outreach and resources to help you succeed with agritourism.

Why The Association?
The Colorado Agritourism Association came about as an outcome of the Agritourism Strategic Planning process initiated by the Heritage/Agritourism Program (now Destination Development) within the Colorado Tourism Office. After visiting numerous communities, interviewing farmers, ranchers and producers, it was made clear to us that an association was needed to represent the voice of the agritourism businesses.
You told us that you needed limited liability legislation, better insurance products, fair zoning and use assessments on lands, improved sign regulations, and finally, help with marketing.
This is where we come in. The Colorado Agritourism Association is a nonprofit, here to work on your behalf to navigate the legislative process, find solutions to insuring and zoning roadblocks, develop a sign program, and help you develop your business model.
The Colorado Tourism Office has many ways for you to connect to their PR and marketing opportunities – many are free. Take time to get your agritourism business and events listed on COLORADO.COM by visiting INDUSTRY.COLORADO.COM!
State approved liability signage is available through the CAA. Signs can be purchased and a new order form will be posted soon. If you need a rush delivery, please email DIRECTOR@COLORADOAGRITOURISMASSOCIATION.ORG.
