Texico, New Mexico
Texico grain elevator
As much as the name "Texico" is a portmanteau of "Texas" and "New Mexico," Texico is the name of the town on the New Mexico side of the border, Farwell is the name on the Texas side. This is primarily a grain-growing, cattle-raising area of the countryside: the skyline is dominated by grain elevators, the air permeated by a hint of feedlot and fertilizers (depending on which way the wind blows).
Kevin Costner made a movie by the name of Swing Vote in 2008. The movie used the name of Texico but the filming was done in Belen.
The population of Texico is up more than 7% since 2000.
