WHY IT’S OUTSTANDING
One of the largest remaining pieces of agricultural land in Albuquerque, this 138-acre site offers a wonderful way to watch the changing seasons as sorghum, corn, flowers, vegetables and other crops grow. The site of the farm has been continuously farmed for hundreds of years. Don’t forget to stop by the community garden hosted by Rio Grande Community Farm and see what the gardeners are growing! This farm offers excellent year-round bird watching opportunities. Kestrels, hawks and songbirds frequent the farm, and hundreds of Sandhill Cranes and Canada Geese visit in the fall and winter.
