Great smell for a great cause
A volunteer helps grill Hatch green chile Saturday, Aug. 20, at Horse N Hound Feed N Supply at 991 W. Amador Ave. A large crowd showed up to purchase chile during a fundraiser for Mayfield High School’s Future Farmers of America club. A second fundraiser, which benefits the Las Cruces and Centennial High School FFA clubs, is from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, also in the Horse N Hound parking lot. Green chile harvest usually lasts until early October. Preston Mitchell, a member of the Hatch Chile Association board, said “Overall the harvest has been good,” but farmers have been dreading increased rainfall.
