Towaok, Colorado (AP) —Droughts have hit most of the west for 22 consecutive years, smashing the land of the Four Corners tribe in Colorado.

This year, the operation of Ute’s famous farms and ranches in the Ute Mountains had to sever half of its workers due to the fallow of thousands of acres.

The Denver Gazette reports that water loss allowed only 2,500 acres of corn to be planted in this operation. This is one tenth of the corn planted in the rainy years.

However, corn products are exploding online under the “Bow and Arrow” brand.

Bow and Arrow, a sister business, pays farms and ranches for corn used to make a variety of products, from polenta to livestock grains.

Colorado companies use bow and arrow cones for high-demand tortillas, snack chips, and whiskey.
