Drought in the Four Corners is placing further stress on farmers bringing their local produce to market. Seeking an opportunity to collaborate, some growers are placing a collective risk in a cooperative working to expand the reach of their products. KSJD’s Daniel Rayzel stopped by a warehouse in downtown Cortez to learn how the co-op helped farms through a difficult year.
