Exhibit Opening: Beyond the Farm: Groundbreaking Agriculture
June 2 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
The Farm & Ranch Museum is opening a new exhibit that uses the inspirational stories of seven remarkable individuals to explore the importance of agricultural research in an everchanging world.
“Beyond the Farm: Groundbreaking Agriculture” opens in the north corridor of the Museum on June 2. A free, opening reception with refreshments is planned for 1:30 to 4 p.m.
Farmers and ranchers keep us fed, clothed, and sheltered. With fewer farmers, less land in agriculture, and more people to feed, the demand to increase efficiency and productivity is clear. Through the support of land grant universities like New Mexico State in Las Cruces, researchers have increased our quality of life and continue to work towards solving worldwide challenges like hunger and disease.
“New Mexico State University has supported the groundbreaking research and discoveries of several agriculturalists and food scientists,” said Farm & Ranch Museum Executive Director Heather Reed. “These people have a unique story to tell as they overcame challenges, broke barriers, and made contributions to agriculture that paved the way for future scientists and healthier generations.”
The Beyond the Farm exhibit shares the individual stories of a diverse group of people connected to New Mexico State University (NMSU).
