Developing Small Scale Agricultural Enterprise

An apprentice program is being developed to equip new and/or transitioning producers to acquire the necessary agriculture skills to operate a small scale agricultural enterprise. The Quay County Food Co-op Exploratory Group is seeking individuals who would be interested in mentoring beginning agriculturists within this program. We will be hosting a meeting on, Friday June 8th from 2:00-4:00 at the Quay County Cooperative Extension office (Terry Turner Building), 216 E. Center Street, Tucumcari, NM.

Consider joining the cooperative’s efforts for the “BRIGHT and SHINING FUTURE of SMALL AGRICULTURE BUSINESS” in our communities.
