Get to know the Mountain View Co+Op! In 1975, a group of New Mexico State University students decided to pool their resources and start a buying club to purchase whole foods at bulk prices. Legend has it that the items they sought out bulk whole grains like brown rice and wheat berries, giant blocks of cheese, and Celestial Seasonings teas, which were not yet available in the area. What began with a few young people looking for ways to eat better with less impact grew, and a home on Foster Road in Las Cruces became the original Organ Mountain Food Cooperative.
