2024 Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association Annual Conference

The Colorado Dry Bean Committee was honored to participate in the Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association (CFVGA) annual conference in February 2024. This is a great event, complete with thought-provoking presentations and breakout sessions, local food, and networking for growers and other attendees.

We had a table to connect with conference attendees and share about beans. Plus, Colorado beans were deliciously featured in the meals at the conference.

Many thanks to those who provided beans for the meals, and also to CFVGA for their wonderful support of Colorado bean growers and processors!

Supporting local farmers is a primary goal of CFVGA. As you can see in the photos below, in addition to other tasty food they had on the menu, Colorado beans were featured! For the plated lunch on day 1 of the conference, the squash was stuffed with Colorado Proud beans. The buffet lunch on day 2 had beans for taco and nacho toppings. Many thanks to those who supplied beans for meals, and to CFVGA for supporting Colorado beans!
