Your move to Farmington, NM

The weather. Farmington is well-known for its enjoyable year-round weather. During the day, you’ll experience warm temps (highs can reach into the 90s), low humidity, and about 273 sunny days per year – perfect for outdoor adventure. When the sun sets, you might need a jacket, but otherwise, the weather in Farmington is the best there is. Winter lows can dip into the 40s, and you’ll likely see about 12 inches of snow per year.

The area. New Mexico is a beautiful state, and you’ll see much of that beauty right in Farmington. As mentioned above, the city is at the connection of three different rivers: The Animas River, the La Plata River, and the San Juan River. The three rivers that flow through the city make up 60% of the state’s water supply. The city itself is located on the Colorado Plateau. All around you, you’ll see mountain ranges, mesas, desert, and rolling plateaus.

A little history lesson. The area of Farmington was inhabited by the Anasazi “basket makers” almost 2,000 years ago (their ruins can still be seen in the countryside), then by the Navajo, Jicarilla Apache, and the Utes. Spanish explorers passed through the area, settled, and then the area grew into “Farmingtown,” which was later shortened to “Farmington.” As the city flourished into a ranching and farming town, it was incorporated in 1901.

The economy. As the largest city in San Juan County, Farmington is the commercial hub for northwestern New Mexico and the Four Corners region. The city is founded upon the oil and gas industries, but as of late, healthcare, retail, government, education, and tourism have all helped to boost the economy and add jobs and entice visitors to the area.

Education. If you’re moving to Farmington with kids, they’ll fit right in with the Farmington Municipal School District. The district is comprised of 10,00 students, 1,200 staff, and 10 elementary schools, four middle schools, three high schools, one pre-K school, and one special education pre-K. There are also several private schools in the area. As for higher education, residents can enroll at San Juan College, a public two-year college that offers more than 119 undergrad programs and majors.

Transportation. Getting around Farmington is a piece of cake thanks to its location near three major highways: US Highway 550, US Highway 64, and New Mexico Highway 371. If you need to catch a fight, Four Corners Regional Airport is just 5 minutes away!

Things to do. If there’s one thing Farmington is known for, it’s baseball. That’s because it’s the home of the Connie Mack World Series, and has been since 1965. The series is the largest tournament in amateur baseball. Be sure to catch a few games at Ricketts Park during the summer.

If you’re not into baseball, don’t worry; Farmington has plenty more to do:

  • Watch for UFOs. The city is known for the largest mass-UFO sighting of all time. In 1950, half of the town claimed they spotted UFOs in the sky.
