The Museum celebrates the 3,000-year agricultural story of New Mexico... from the first farmers in their rustic pithouses more than 1,200 years ago to the modern-day technology which is helping to make New Mexico a leader in the dairy industry.
Located on Dripping Springs Road in Las Cruces, within a half mile of Interstate 25, the Museum enjoys a dramatic view of the jagged peaks of the Organ Mountains to the east. The complex occupies a site with a living, working farm and ranch, coupled with a dramatic, Spanish hacienda-style building for display and exhibition.
The new Museum's goal is ambitious...to welcome visitors who can remember agricultural roots as well as to set the stage for younger, urban generations who never had the opportunity to experience a rural homecoming.
