Small scale agriculture in the Rio Grande Valley and medium to large scale in high plains Torrance County and Sandoval County is a traditional practice that is regaining in strength and developing into a strong part of the local economy. As demand for local food increases, opportunities to develop new agriculture and food ventures open up, and avenues for market connections become key. Increasing the local food and agriculture sector requires new entrepreneurial farmers, increased agricultural production and new local food products.
