These entities have provided input on creation of this website, and are in ongoing dialogue about the various ways we can work together to keep agricultural land in production, support rural and land based communities, improve the health of our soil and watersheds, and foster future generations of farmers. Additionally, each offers land linking resources in a variety of forms appropriate to the people the organization serves. We encourage you to reach out to these entities to learn more about their work and land link opportunities that they offer.
This dynamic group is made up of citizens, growers, farmers, producers, food processors, food buyers, representatives from government agencies, agricultural organizations, retail operations and manufacturing companies, scientists, professors, community activists, and economic development specialists. We are committed to improving the sustainability and profitability of local food and agriculture in New Mexico’s mid region.
The Rio Grande Farmers Coalition is a loose affiliation of farmers, resilient agriculture advocates, and local food champions all working to create a community where people willing to work, get trained and take a little risk can support themselves and their families in farming. Currently this group works to support and augment the efforts of organizations with similar missions, and organize events to help educate and network farmers primarily in the Middle Rio Grande.
Edible Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos
edible Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos is a bi-monthly publication that promotes and celebrates the abundance of local foods in North Central New Mexico. We value local, seasonal, authentic foods and culinary traditions. We celebrate family farmers who plant the seeds and work tirelessly to bring you the freshest local produce, the ranchers and poultry farmers committed to creating healthier and more sustainable methods of working with animals and the land; the food artisans who proudly create a creamy cheese and the wines to pair them with, and the local chefs who continually create to excite us with the unique flavors of this region.
