At Home with Moore Family Farms

A local-food enthusiast and recent college graduate puts theory to work creating a family farm outside Albuquerque.

Although starting a market farm was Richard’s dream, the farming bug bit the entire family. Richard is the farm’s only full-time employee, but Carol and Ken help with the farm work and with staffing the farmers market each week. The two relish the opportunity to dig in the earth in the evening after they get home from their office jobs. Richard’s sister, Betty, is a college student who lives away from home, but she still helps out as time allows.
