The Birthing of Created in Colorado

Laura Snyder-Sherman is a home-grown Colorado ranch girl. Steeped in her traditional rural Colorado life, she’s growing a new family of her own.

Nathalie Bouchard, a French-Canadian American, is a self-renowned locavore, sometime world traveler, and a business woman…a transplant to rural life in Colorado since 2004.

It would be difficult to find two people apparently more diverse.

But, lucky for the rest of us, these two spunky women have found common ground: Their driving passion for fresh, local foods and other quality, Made in Colorado products! Together they’ve formed Created in Colorado to help champion a growing trend. Their common purpose is to serve a resurgence of demand for local foods as well as Colorado arts and crafts and a variety of other hand crafted wares!
