Most of the farms covered in this book lie along the Rio Grande and its tributaries such as the Rio Chama. Most are located in the northern part of the state, where small farms have been under cultivation since Spanish colonial times or before, and where large-scale agriculture is unknown. Some are close to urban areas, including at least one farm within Albuquerque, New Mexico's largest city. Another is within easy walking distance of the town plaza in Socorro.
