About Us

Be Local Northern Colorado

Our mission at Be Local is to cultivate our living economy of independent, uniquely local businesses and farms through community advocacy, consumer education, and business promotion.
We also strive towards being local by being creative, innovative, wacky, passionate, and yes, silly.  We LOVE Fort Collins and the greater Northern Colorado area.  The air is clean.  The mountains are vast.  The people are downright awesome.  We wouldn’t trade it for anything.
So join us in our mission.  Share your thoughts about the local economy, local community, local farms, local uniqueness.  We’d love to hear about it…and we’d love to dialogue to be among folks in the community, not solely towards and from Be Local.
And don’t forget to join us for our Plaid Mobs, the 3rd Tuesday each month, where we “mob” a local business that gives back to the community with at least $10.   Stay tuned for more details on the location one week prior to the event.
Thanks for your support and conversation!
