affiliated producers are listed on our website and are included in
hand-outs we distribute at events such as local food tastings, which
many potential customers attend. We also conduct workshops on a
variety of topics such as production, processing and marketing.
Currently, we are also looking at ways in which we can assist our
producers by facilitating the channel from pasture to plate through
enhanced distribution and increased local processing options.
In the past two years, through partnerships with a variety of other
organizations (The Quivira Coalition, The Southwest Marketing Network,
Farm to Table and Slow Foods), SWGLA has held public tasting events in
Santa Fe, Capitan, and Truth or Consequences in which people come to
sample a variety of grassfed livestock products. These events have been
very successful, with many new “converted” customers who go on to
purchase products from our producers. These events have engaged over
1500 people from throughout New Mexico and beyond.
