Renovations are currently underway on a new Ranch Foods Direct retail store that will open inside the food distribution warehouse at 4635 Town Center Dr. In addition, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack recently announced that among nearly $35 million in new grant funding to support local and regional food systems, USDA would be making a $100,000 contribution to Ranch Foods Direct for establishing a commercial kitchen inside the warehouse. The creation of kitchen facilities will expand the company’s ability to preserve and distribute local food products and enhance its role as a food hub for Southern Colorado.

Ranch Foods Direct will have more exciting updates in the weeks ahead.
