It’s a way to bring people together for a common cause while supporting a local business. “You pick, the whole mentality behind it is awesome. That whole initiative, a community’s out here now, and so that’s what we’re trying to build is a community here in Albuquerque,” said Joey Gutierrez, director of membership for the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce.

The farm is open year-round from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Big Jim Farms is planning to hold u-pick events for chile and pumpkin season later this year.
