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, virtual version was held in 2021, after the 2020 event was canceled due to the pandemic. 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. The three-day conference has over 150 attendees and features a reception, breakout sessions, keynote speakers, educational agricultural speakers, dinner with mentors, networking opportunities and more.

A special version of the AgriFuture Educational Institute – AgriFuture: New Mexico in a Box & thinking outside it – was held via Zoom Monday, June 21, 2021. This virtual event featured producers of specialty items via a New Mexico food product box assembled by Legacy Pecans/Enchanted NM Box and included a “tasting” component. The AgriFuture Committee also compiled a list of New Mexico subscription food box companies and CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture).
