Colorado Chicken farmers produce more than 1.3 billion eggs each year. This month the folks at the state Agriculture Department are highlighting the families and farms who raise the more than 4.5 million laying eggs with a special egg salad recipe that uses agave nectar.

“It’s the perfect time to get out and use this Gimme Five Egg Salad recipe which is super simple. It includes agave nectar as one of the ingredients. There’s only 5 ingredients so it’s really easy. Eggs is one of our top commodities in Colorado.”

Wendy White with Colorado’s Department of Agriculture.

Total gross income from egg production was $96.2 million. In terms of egg producing states, Colorado ranks as 23rd in the nation.
