Cooperative Extension ServiceZuni Extension
The Zuni Pueblo is the largest of the 19 pueblos in New Mexico. It consists of over 450,000 acres of open grazing land, some 6,000 acres of cropland and forested areas.
Approximately 1,500 acres of the cropland is in production. This land amount does not include lands recently purchased or owned in Arizona. The Zuni people have a renewed interest in agriculture.
In the past several years, we have seen more agriculture fields put back into production and have conducted more workshops related to farming and gardening.
There is still a strong continued interest in youth development through 4-H and it is supported in the school and by the tribal council.
