Pacheco family grows food, fiber even with urban encroachment

The Pacheco family of Marana, Ariz. knows first hand about two things: farming successfully for three generations and facing the likely loss of their farm over time to urban encroachment from the greater Tucson area.

Yet the Pachecos are proud and profitable farmers, and will continue to farm as long as they can.

Enjoy these photos of the Pacheco's 1,600 acre operation.
