Program Description
A great number of "ranchettes" (5-35 acres) have been established along the Front Range stretching from Fort Collins to Pueblo. Colorado State University Cooperative Extension provides self study and group instruction materials, as well as one-on-one, to our small acreage owners. Trained specialists and agents support a variety of animal enterprises such as aquaculture, ratites, goat raising and others including organic livestock production. In the plant sector, there is special interest in herbs, organic fruits and vegetables and numerous alternative crops. Natural resource management is a significant need by these small scale landowners.
