Two Arizona farms were recently recognized for being “Healthy Farms” by the Arizona-Mexico Commission.

As of summer 2011, the Arizona-Mexico Commission has begun publically recognizing farms that meet high standards for health, safety, and sanitation and collaborate with a local Community Health Center to bring health outreach services and basic health education to workers.
