Molino de la Isla Coop Joins Santa Fe Farmers Market to Expand its Markets

Molino de la Isla Farming coop in Pecos, NM, has had a banner year. Coop President Ralph Vigil II said the coop expanded its growing capacity by planting one new acre of Concho corn to produce chicos. Chicos are a centuries-old corn developed in northern New Mexico that is dried and baked in hornos for use during winter months, usually added to frijoles de la olla. The coop also joined the Santa Fe Farmers Market and continued its successful participation at the Tri- Counties Farmers Market in Las Vegas, NM.
