Resilience in New Mexico Agriculture Regional Meetings

New Mexico First will host Resilience in New Mexico Agriculture Regional Meetings! Register today!

A resilient New Mexico food and agriculture system, capable of withstanding new challenges and advancing to new successes, will require both a strong export-oriented commodity agriculture sector and a robust local food system of small and medium-sized family farms and ranches.

For these reasons, New Mexico First and New Mexico State University County Extension Service will convene a series of regional meetings that will bring together a diverse group of agriculture stakeholders to identify industry trends, challenges and solutions.

These meetings will kick off a series of events that will lead to a statewide resiliency plan that will:

  • Create common ground regarding food and agriculture policies
  • Generate ideas for more economic value for producers and economic vitality for communities
  • Develop strategies to support young people who want to stay with or get back into agriculture
  • Address water, land-use, climate and economic challenges facing the agricultural industry
  • Support agriculture’s contributions to health-related solutions for consumers and communities
  • Contribute to worker, consumer and community welfare

Who Should Attend?

  • Farmers and ranchers
  • Commercial producers & marketers (e.g., process, store, distribute or market agricultural products)
  • Educators & researchers
  • Government employees (e.g., extension agent, water and environmental policy, food safety, etc.)
