Down and Dirty with Rachel
Change is hard. But change and the need to change can lead to some of the greatest opportunities.

Farmers are notoriously, and understandably, reluctant to change, but I have already heard area farmers express interest in new irrigation practices. Humans are an adaptable bunch, and I am optimistic that Sandoval County agriculture will thrive for much longer than the old cottonwood has been alive. Even if that entails finding a new favorite wine.
