Rio Grande Return - Gifts from the River

Cranes on the Rio Grande
For thousands of years Sandhill cranes have migrated up and down the Rio Grande. Like so many other species, these Sandhill Cranes depend on the Rio Grande for their survival.
Farmers and Producers
Along with the commitment to help protect the waters, riparian areas, open spaces and wildlife of the Rio Grande, the Rio Grande Return is also dedicated to protecting our precious agricultural lands, traditional farming practices and native seeds. Our packages are comprised of carefully selected products from local producers and farmers within the watershed.
