Bosque Farms, New Mexico

Summary
Bosque Farms is a village in Valencia County, New Mexico, United States. The population was 3,904 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Albuquerque Metropolitan Statistical Area. History What is known as Bosque Farms today was part of a Spanish land grant dating from 1716, originally known as Bosque del Pino (Forest Pines), or Los Pinos. The land changed hands numerous times before being purchased during the Great Depression by the New Mexico Rural Rehabilitation Corporation, which in turn sold it to the federal Resettlement Administration in 1935. The RA renamed the land Bosque Farms and turned it into an agricultural resettlement project for Dust Bowl refugees. Traditional farming failed due to poor soil conditions, and the families who stayed turned to dairy farming, which became the community's main agricultural industry through the 1960s. Bosque Farms was incorporated in 1974. Today, housing and commercial development are its main sources of revenue.
