Mission Statement

The mission of CAA is to preserve the agricultural heritage of the Yampa Valley by initiating, supporting and encouraging actions, programs and policies that mutually benefit and connect agricultural producers and consumers.

Organization History

CAA was established in 1999 in response to concerns over the loss of agriculture and the community's desire to ensure ongoing support, allowing agriculture to remain active and a vital part of the area for generations to come.
The Yampa Valley is a special place with a diverse background. We have a rich history of agriculture, dating from the 1870s, with many of the ranches still in continuing family ownership. There is also an economic base of coal mining with a heritage of gold and silver mining. Located in Northwest Colorado, the area boasts abundant scenery and wildlife that provides a strong recreational economy. Lastly an integral part of the mix is the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation, which provides a strong resort and service economy. All of these diverse segments are dependent upon each other for economic opportunities and have a common desire to build on strengths while maintaining the environmental resources, authentic western culture and agricultural heritage. The challenge is to coordinate the continual need to keep agricultural issues relevant to this diverse area, making the role of the CAA critical to our communities' continued balance.
Diverse demographics, including local residents and visitors, are served with the common goal of education and community engagement. CAA has developed an exceptional reputation as the expert on agriculture related issues and provides regional leadership.
