Lazy days and lavender haze 

Summer on the farm

June - August

As summer arrives and our organic lavender fields begin to showcase shades of purple, farm life is buzzing with excitement. Countless varieties of vegetables and herbs are making their way to the table, and the gardens are bursting with blooms. Find a meditative moment in the garden, explore the neighborhood on two wheels and stargaze New Mexico's incredible night skies. We encourage you to slow down and enjoy la vida generosa.

REVEL IN LAVENDER SEASON

Immerse yourself in all things lavender during our favorite season on the farm. From lavender distillation demonstrations to a chat with our beekeeper or a lavender production tour, the season is full of activities to let you experience this special time of year. Indulge in a restorative massage or facial at the Hacienda Spa featuring our organic lavender spa products or sip a Lavender '99 cocktail overlooking the fields. 

90 years of Growth

2024 marks 90 years since Albert and Ruth Simms began operating the ranch as an experimental farm, dairy and center for arts, culture and education, a legacy we endeavor to preserve on a daily basis. The Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series celebrates the rich cultural history of New Mexico in John Gaw Meem's architectural gem La Quinta.

holistic well-being

Take a deep breath, slow down and soak in the serenity of the farm with a treatment at the Hacienda Spa, a leisurely walk or a dip in our saltwater pool. For something more active, try a cruiser bike ride along the Rio Grande or yoga, sound meditation and Pilates classes in the wellness yurt. Re-balance and align with our restorative Summer Yoga Retreat or Lavender Wellness Retreat.

SEASONAL FLAVORs

Experience dining at La Quinta with our annual Lavender Harvest Dinner featuring a wine-paired menu that infuses lavender into our Rio Grande Valley Cuisine. Enjoy a seasonal menu at Afternoon Tea or join the Literary Luncheon at La Quinta and be inspired by Mary Berry of the Wendell Berry Center. For farm-to-table brunch or dinner, and specialty cocktails on the patio, Campo awaits.
