These farms are privately owned and posted.  Southwest Airsports, students, and visitors have permission from the owner to use them for training.  All others must have permission from Evergreen Turf (575) 589-0401 to enter the farms.  Because of extensive theft of turf and equipment, the main entrance to the farms is now locked except during business hours.  We have a key to the gate so students can train at all times.

Turf farm #1 is always available and is not behind a fence or gate.

Directions to the Sod Farms.  Training is usually conducted at farm #4
