Up your production
For those interested in growing on a larger scale, we provide access to farmland plots from one-eighth to two acres and irrigation through our MicroFarm Program.
In addition to the plot of farmland, you receive acequia irrigation, subject to water availability. Well water is available as a secondary water source in case of drought or for establishing young crops on drip lines. You’ll also receive a Rio Grande Community Farm Membership that includes a membership card for each grower in your group, free classes, a farm sticker, newsletter subscriptions, 50% discount on vendor booths at our events, 15% discount on all merch, and early-bird event discounts.
