General

  • Mission:
  • To preserve the agricultural heritage of the Yampa River Valley by initiating, supporting and encouraging actions, programs and policies that mutually benefit and connect agricultural producers and consumers.

  • History:
  • The Community Agriculture Alliance (CAA) is an incorporated, non-profit community organization serving Routt County and the Yampa River Valley in Northwest Colorado. The 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 adapt to changes in the local and regional economy. The overall goal is to have agriculture and the environment remain an active and vital part of the Yampa River Valley for generations to come.

    The Yampa Valley is truly a special place. 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 the areas strengths while maintaining the environmental resources, authentic western culture and agricultural heritage. The challenge is to coordinate the continual need to keep agricultural and environmental issues relevant to this diverse area, making the role of the Community Agriculture Alliance critical to our communities’ continued balance.
