                         ELLIOTT FARMS TRIBUTE


                          HON. SCOTT R. TIPTON

                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, October 13, 2011

  Mr. TIPTON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the Elliott Farms, LLC 
of Monte Vista, Colorado. In 1907, the Sanderson family of Hamilton, 
Missouri moved west and settled in Monte Vista. In 1908, the family 
acquired a 160-acre farm.
  The property was passed down through the generations that followed 
and grew in size. The farm saw many years of fruitful potato crops that 
brought the family and the valley a great deal of prosperity. Today, 
the farm is operated in four sections and still makes use of the 1916 
house and 1930s garage and barn.
  Elliott Farms, LLC was recognized by the Colorado Historical Society 
at the 139th Colorado State Fair. Elliott Farms, LLC is one of eighteen 
farms honored by the Centennial Farms Program for its rich history, 
tradition, and contributions to the State of Colorado over the past

  Mr. Speaker, it is an honor to recognize Elliott Farms LLC. Its 
agricultural contributions to the State of Colorado, as well as its 
valuable historical and cultural traditions, have helped make Colorado 
a leader in agricultural production.
