Artisan Farming

Lessons, Lore, and Recipes from New Mexico

Astisan Farming focuses on the unique farming culture of New Mexico. Laden with rich photos, ripe with human interest stories, and bounteous with tantalizing recipes, Artisan Farming explores this state's one-of-a-kind agricultural heritage and the revival of traditional, organic, and "artisan" farming. Explore these small farms, farmers' markets, community-upported agriculture (CSA) organiztions, heritage seed exchanges, and other entries that have made the independent farming revival possible.

Editorial Reviews

There may be nothing new under the sun, but New Mexico farmers are proving that crops and friendships are blooming in unexpected ways. The revival of traditional, organic, and "artisan" farming in the Land of Enchantment have changed the face of agriculture and earned recognition nationwide. Western travel book author Richard Harris and Farming Season radio host and organic farmer Lisa Fox have combined their talents to share stories (and some yummy recipes) that reflect the richness of these revitalized homegrown cooperative enterprises.

Read an Excerpt

Backcountry

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.
