About the AgriFuture Educational Institute:

AgriFuture aims to connect, inform and inspire the next generation of farmers, ranchers and all people involved in agriculture.

The New Mexico Department of Agriculture and a dozen other New Mexico agencies and agriculture organizations host AgriFuture in even-numbered years. (A condensed version of the event is being held in 2021, due to the pandemic in 2020.) AgriFuture is geared toward anyone 18 to 40 years of age but is open to anyone older or younger who is interested in being a part of the future of agriculture. Current producers of any age are highly encouraged to join alongside future producers to learn and share insights. Veterans of the armed forces are encouraged to attend. In a typical year, the three-day conference has over 150 attendees and features a reception, breakout sessions, educational agricultural speakers, dinner with mentors, networking opportunities and more.
