Taos County Economic Development Corporation

Taos County Economic Development Corporation was founded in 1987, the challenges facing our community were those of a historic, semi-isolated, rural area transitioning from a centuries-old, self-sufficient agrarian base to a commercially focused economy. TCEDC has operated over twenty-nine years utilizing a family model in its community development efforts to address these challenges.

This is such a welcome sight to see, community helping community. Share plots are what’s needed in other areas of the country. Hand up, not out.

Great place to get involved with the community. Help out local growers and local small businesses and interact by networking with others. Opportunity programs and workshops. Good hearted staff. Great place to expand your food business.

Thank you for believing in me and my bees, for helping a community-based dream to come true. The kitchen has been a true asset in honey production and is a real gem for Taos County…Helping others to flourish, a truly noble establishment.
