New Mexico Food & Farms Day and Awards are produced by Farm to Table NM and the NM Food & Agriculture Policy Council. The Policy Council and statewide partners represent a diverse group of organizations and individuals who are invested in the future of agriculture in New Mexico and support the efforts of local farmers to reach local markets. An important focus of our effort is to advocate for policies which facilitate bringing more fresh fruits and vegetables into schools.
