NM Centennial- It's all about the WAter, Pt. 2

Posted January 17, 2012

The amount of irrigated acreage in southern New Mexico tripled to more than 100,000 acres, according to the Bureau of Reclamation (after construction of the Dam). 

Faced with repaying the federal government for the project, southern New Mexico and El Paso area farmers turned to crops that generated more revenue, such as pecans, not a native crop and cotton.

Pecan production nationwide began to grow in the 1920s, and the same occurred in New Mexico.  Before 1930, pecans in New Mexico were mostly gathered from small orchards, but in recent decades, pecans have become big business, with the state regularly ranking among the nation's top three producers.

The Stahmann family of Dona Ana County became the biggest pecan-growing family in the U.S. after switching from cotton and planting 4,000 acres of trees in the Mesilla Valley.

Pecan production statewide swelled from 8 million pounds in 1960 to 68 million pounds in 2009, placing New Mexico second in the nation behind only Georgia.

Cotton was the leading crop in New Mexico until 1967, but that changed.

Now, cotton and pecans are dwarfed in production these days by the state's crop king, hay, which topped 300,000 acres harvested in 2010, including 220,000 acres of alfalfa.

The hay goes to feed the more than 1.5 million cows and calves statewide, spread out in nearly 10,000 farms, ranches, feed lots and dairy lots.

What's Happenin' at the Resort

Posted January 8, 2012

Good afternoon!
We hope you made it safely and happily through the first week of the new year!  The weather has been beautiful and we all have so much to be thankful for.  In our bi-monthly updates, I thought I would start letting you know what's going on in all areas of the Elephant Butte Lake Resort..it's getting closer for the busy season to get started in Elephant Butte and we're all excited about that.

What's Happenin' in the:

Ivory Tusk Restaurant:  The second week of January is Healthy Weight Week but at the Ivory Tusk Restaurant, we are celebrating all month. I will post the specials with this Blog today.  The Atrium is currently closed for remodeling but there is plenty of room in the banquet hall and the tavern to order from our full menu.

Ivory Tusk Tavern:  With the start of the 100th Birthday of the State of New Mexico, our Tavern is highlighting the official Centennial Margarita which is made with 100% Agave Camarena Tequila.  The drink is only $7.99 and you get to keep the commemorative glass that it is served in.

Ivory Tusk Gift Shop: We have a great sale going on our Noni (AHA) products:  Purchase a Facial Cleanser at regular price and get the Facial Tonic for half price.  If you use this wonderful line of product, you know what a great deal this is.  If you don't use this line, come visit with Debbie; she'll explain the great benefits of using this line.  We also have some new scarves in done by Grasshopper Silk (aka Sandy Hopper).  These sold really well for Christmas gifts...start thinking now about Valentine's Day!

Ivory Tusk Spa:  WOW!  Gift Certificates purchased for Spa Treatments this Christmas were amazing.  What's even more exciting is that everyone is using their Gift Certificates and finding out the health benefits of a massage and other spa treatments.  A gift of wellness is a wonderful, thoughtful gift.

Ivory Tusk Salon:  Spend some time with Annette when you can.  She is excellent at looking at your face color and shape, the color and texture of your hair and so much more.  She then uses her artistic skill to give you the best salon services in the area.  Did you know she does hair extensions?

Group Services:  Most of you know Nancy Cottle and many of you have dealt with her arranging your special party or group meeting.  We have the space and staffing (for up to 200 people maximum) to help you with your wedding, company parties, monthly meetings, special breakfasts...the list is endless.  We can accommodate more than 200 people if your event is outside on our east lawn.  We can cater for your party.  Just give Nancy a call!

RV Resort:  If you haven't checked out the Dog Wash or Laundromat, you are missing a great service the RV Resort offers.  Both of these are open to the public, not just RV guests.  If you have any friends coming to visit and need a great, friendly resort...send them our way.  Ask them to call (744-5996) and ask about our special Golf Packages.  We are hoping to have the new website for the RV Resort up by the end of this month...www.elephantbuttelakervresort.com
Please check us out on Facebook...we need all the "likes" we can get. 

Elephant Butte Inn Website:  We've started something new on our Blog this week.  We will be "discussing" the special and historical events that have happened in our area and hope to get your input. Under "Group Events", check out our "Image Gallery"-- you may even find yourself on that site.   Don't forget to find us also on Facebook.  We are in the process of doing some updating on our website so you may see some changes soon.  www.elephantbutteinn.com

The LaFont Family and all of us here at the Resort wish you a terrific year!  Thank you for your patronage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

NM Centennial -It's All About the Water

Posted January 7, 2012

In an arid state, harnessing water from mountain snow melt and springs has always been critical to sustaining agricultural production,

The Bureau of Reclamation's construction of Elephant Butte Dam, rising 301 feet tall and nearly 1,700 feet wide, between 1911 and 1916, created the largest irrigation reservoir in the world at that time.  By creating a vast lake, the project also produced New Mexico's most popular state park.

The project was aimed at taming the unpredictable flooding of the Rio Grande, to ensure the regular supply of irrigation water and to consolidate small privately built irrigation systems in the Rincon and Mesilla Valleys.

The amount of irrigated acreage in Southern New Mexico tripled to more than 100,000 acres, according to the Bureau of Reclamation.

More next week...this information was supplied by the Albuquerque Journal's "New Mexico, 100 years of Statehood" special Centennial edition.

Today, Sierra County celebrated with a "Walk Across the Dam"...this has not been allowed since the 9/11 tragedies.
