Join CAA in celebrating Ag Appreciation WeekMarch 17-24, 2019. Ag Week started locally with a desire to acknowledge National Ag Day, but has since turned into a week long celebration of all things agriculture in the Yampa Valley! It is also CAA's largest fund raising effort with more than 100 area businesses aligning themselves with local agriculture and CAA's mission to promote and support ag. In 2018 over $26,000 was raised in support of CAA. We can't do it alone, so please consider adding your business or personal support today! 2019 Sponsorship Information here

A Special Thank You to Our Lead Sponsors
Ag Appreciation Week (National Ag Week) is a time to recognize and celebrate the importance of agriculture. Agriculture provides most everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis. National and local efforts educate millions of consumers and ask "Where would YOU be without agriculture? Naked and Hungry!"
Since 2013 Ag Week has become CAA's largest fund raising effort. Area businesses, individuals and organizations sponsor our efforts with annual membership contributions and sponsorships. Please consider joining us and support local ag!
