Nature's Proving Ground

When it comes to owning and operating an outdoor recreation business, whether a guide, outfitter or gear manufacturer, there is no better place than Farmington, NM. That’s why Farmington is Nature’s Proving Ground.

With a community mindset to assist our outdoor recreation businesses to succeed while offering substantial business resources and manufacturing capacity, Farmington welcomes outdoor entrepreneurs looking to start their next “big idea” venture or established companies seeking to expand or relocate in a place with a quality of life second to none. With an abundance of natural amenities right in our backyard, Farmington is the perfect place for outdoor entrepreneurs to build and test most outdoor gear.
