Fresh Off the Farm

Farm-to-Table at Hotel Albuquerque

Farmer’s Daughters and Chef Gilbert Aragon create unique dinner series

Despite the growing farm-to-table movement in recent decades, most farmers are still facing an uphill battle to be profitable due to rising land costs, increased development and climate change. Ashley and Chantelle Wagner created their company Farmer’s Daughters to get more local produce served in New Mexico restaurants, breweries and food trucks.

Get Out There

It’s summer in Burque and myriad patios await your presence. Snap the kids out of their bought air-and-video game trance for an outing that culminates in the joyful consumption of healthful and delicious paletas—no, really!—or invite some colleagues and comrades out to smash the swanky local rooftop bar scene with you. If you’re looking for a more pastoral vibe, get your farm-to-table on in Albuquerque’s resplendent North Valley. Here are a handful of our favorite patios in The Duke City. Don’t neglect to slather on some sunscreen and install a rideshare app (such as Uber, Lyft or zTrip) on your smartphone ... in case you over-hydrate.
