San Xavier Cooperative Farm

“I remember riding my bike as a child and seeing the alfalfa growing in the fields and seeing all the crops growing including watermelon. Also, I remember making cemit (tortillas) with my grandmother and they would come out all shaped and sizes. Little did I know she was teaching me the skills I know today to be a good representative for the San Xavier Cooperative Farm and for my community. In the kitchen making breads and the passion I have for cooking and now today I get to make these great cemit that feed people and that given as gifts to pass on to others and even to introduce our tradition to others.” -Maryia Miles, Catering Coordinator
