Agri-Tours

Heritage Tours of Southern Colorado held their inaugural Agri-Tour to Milberger and Mauro Farms on May 18th.  The tourists enjoyed lunch at the processing plant for Milberger Farms and Dalton Milberger walked us through the picking, sorting, washing and packaging of the day's harvest of radishes.  

At Mauro's Farm and Bakery, Carla Mauro entertained the group with family history going back to the turn of the 20th century, how farming has changed and become modernized without affecting the quality of their produce.  The group was able to sample the potica that is a Slovenian favorite.

Our final stop was at the Milberger Farm Store for shopping and an after-tour discussion.

Heritage Tours of Southern Colorado will be offering more Agri-Tours beginning in August of the year and running through October.  Information on tours will be updated soon.
