THE MORGAN COUNTY STORY

In Morgan County, the scent of growth and tradition fills the air. Here, agriculture is a way of life, bringing with it the earthy essence of freshly turned soil and the distinct aroma of livestock operations—it's the smell of home and prosperity. Morgan County, Colorado, was founded primarily on agriculture and related industries. Known for the cultivation of crops like sugar beets, corn, and wheat, as well as livestock farming, agriculture has historically been the backbone of the county's economy, and it continues to be a significant driver today. Our agricultural activities can generate distinctive odors, especially during planting, harvesting, and manure management. The smell of freshly tilled soil, for example, is common during the planting season, while the odor of manure may be noticeable near livestock operations. These smells tell our story. A story we are proud to tell!
