Becoming a Farmer
Starting out with zero experience Matt Romero has developed a hugely successful small scale farming operation.
Matt spent many years as an executive chef before giving it up to start farming eight years ago. He started by caretaking a ten-acre farm before getting access to his uncle's 3-acre tract, a tractor and tools. His first farmer's market was Los Alamos and he says he was a 'very small vendor" there, but he didn't stay small. Matt got some family members and friends to 'lend' him their fallow tracts - 4 ½ acres in Dixon and two 3-acre parcels in Alcalde. In return for the loan Matt farms the land, improves it and keeps it productive. Matt is now one of the largest vegetable vendors at the Santa Fe and Los Alamos markets.
