New Mexico Art Tells its History

Agriculture

New Mexico’s agricultural history is long and diverse. The first farmers were the Pueblo Indians, who raised corn, beans, and squash. Wheat and barley were introduced from Europe, and indigo and chiles came from Mexico. New Mexico’s agriculture is now as diverse as the state’s culture, geography, and climate, and today agriculture is one of the state’s principal industries.
