Don Bustos

AFSC's Don Bustos awarded New Mexico Organic Farmer of the Year

AFSC’s Don Bustos says his ancestors arrived in northern New Mexico more than 300 years ago to claim the land granted to the family by the king of Spain.  His ancestors are both native Pueblo and Spanish and the 150 year migration created the diverse mix of Indo-Hispano people to which he belongs. He and his step-daughter and two grandchildren work those same fields today.  Throughout, Don has used his family’s traditional farming methods, with modest technological additions along the way.
