Even though Colorado is a mountain state, nearly half of the state is dedicated to agriculture. Even with the state’s diverse landscaping, it has some of the most fertile soils in the United States.

Farmers and ranchers also raise bison, ostriches and emu, and grow sunflowers, grapes, mushrooms, and more. Check out 16 more facts about the state:
