My husband, Robert and I hosted our first Benefiical Farms CSA distribution on Friday. We are distributing from the Kosmic Trading Post in Nob Hill -- a cooperative of healers in Albuquerque (if you've never stopped in, have a look at all their beautiful stuff).  This week the vegetable share was - 5 pink lady apples, 8 purple potatoes, 1 bag of sprouts, 1.5 lb bag of shelled peanuts, 1 lb. bag of frozen figs or apricots, and a jar of chutney! And everything within our local food region! Please consider supporting the farmers that grow organic/chemical-free vegetables in our region by going to and signing up for the CSA!

Are you a land owner looking for someone to farm your land? Are you a farmer looking for land to farm? Or maybe you're a beginning farmer looking for a mentorship or internship opportunity with an experienced farmer? We're working on expanding our Central New Mexico LandLink program. Check out our website to see if we can help. We are in the process of inputing our "Seeker" listings, so stay tuned.

The Central New Mexico LandLink is an effort to connect entrepreneurial farmers and ranchers looking for land and farming opportunity to agricultural landowners, and farm and ranch internship and mentorship possibilities.

If you have any questions please contact us at:

ABQ Uptown Grower's Market Saturdays and Tuesdays 7 am until noon through October.  It is harvest season and the produce is fresh and local!  Due to the late spring frost tree fruit is almost non-existent locally, but Wagner Farm has lucious peaches and crisp apples from their farms in Socorro and Corrales!  We are roasting green chile from heart of the Rio Abajo in Valencia County and the tomatoes and melons are ripe and plentiful!

Live music in the morning starting about 8:30 with Bambi, plenty of free parking and lots and lots of local food!

When speaking about agriculture, the 800 pound gorilla in the room always seems to be Water.  We are taking on this gorilla by collaborating with the Water Resources Board on June 10, 2015.  Come here what the State Engineer has to say and how the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District is responding.  Read more here:
