Agriculture Hall of Fame to relocate to Northern Colorado

FORT COLLINS – The Colorado Agriculture Hall of Fame is moving from Denver to Northern Colorado.

The new hall of fame will exhibit a state history of agriculture and biographies of agricultural leaders alongside their photos, said Don Thorn, executive director of the Colorado FFA Association. The organization, formerly known as Colorado Future Farmers of America, will collaborate with Colorado State University to build the hall of fame near CSU’s Agricultural Research, Development and Education Center.

Currently located in the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s Denver office, the hall of fame contains only the portraits of approximately 80 inductees and is not often seen by the public, Thorn said. The new space, called the Center for Agricultural Education, would serve as a proper venue to honor agricultural innovators whose contributions range from pioneering new farming techniques to influencing agricultural education.

“This allows for a more accessible and public viewing place at our land-grant university,” he said. “We’ll continue to highlight those people at the Department of Agriculture’s office, as well.”

Thorn hopes to break ground on the building in three years. Funded by private donations and fundraising, the building also will contain classrooms for CSU agricultural education.
