Our family has been farming in Corrales, NM for over 100 years. At the end of 2017, 30 acres of land we have leased for over 40 years will be listed for sale by the landowners.  It will more than likely be sold to housing developers, as farmers cannot keep pace with the high land prices in Corrales. We need your help to protect this farmland and Save The Space!

UPDATE:

The citizens of Corrales voted on March 6th, 2018 in favor of passing a $2.5 million bond to preserve farmland & open space

No Farmland Bond Vote in August, Corrales Comment, June 27th, 2017

A general obligation bond proposal will not be put to Corrales voters in August as had been urged by farmland preservation proponents who wish to  finance acquisition of a conservation easement on portions of the Trosello tract now up for sale as home sites. At the June 13 Village Council meeting, Mayor Scott Kominiak and Village Attorney John Appel explained it is now too late to put such a proposal to voters at a special election in August.

What could save the scenic expanse of farmland at the north end of the valley from development as home sites? Since the for sale sign went up at the edge of Corrales Road last month, a flurry of activity has raised hopes that a way may be found to establish a conservation easement on some or all of the 30-acre Trosello tract.
