This area is NOT suitable for farming.  You can get a well permit, and dig a well- then  water some trees, plow some dirt and make a garden, you can also have some small livestock inside fences.  You get cool temperatures at this elevation at night so the growing season is short.  You have to live on the property and water trees regularly to get them started.  We've seen antelope, rabbits, small foxes, and other little dessert critters in this area.  The soil is pretty sandy, so you might need to enrich it for your garden.  You can have a mobilehome that is not older than 1976, but check with Alamosa County to start a building project.  They follow standardized rules and regs concerning building permits and improvements.  There is a small college and a regional airport in Alamosa.
