Farmer Eddie Velarde says it best, “Our family farm has supported and kept alive the tradition of growing prime chile and fruit for many generations. New Mexico used to be considered one of the states selling large amounts of apples and chile. We want to continue maintaining that tradition. We want agricultural land in agriculture. We want to save our traditions, acequias and farmland. We maintain heritage fruit trees and want to continue that tradition. We want to provide school children with fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers.”
