Summer on the Farm
A Season of Abundance
June - August
As summer arrives and our lavender fields begin to showcase their shades of purple, farm life starts buzzing with excitement. Countless varieties of vegetables and herbs that were planted earlier in the year are now ready for harvest, and the gardens are bursting with blooms for bouquets around the property. From our field-to-fork menus at Campo to our artisan lavender product line at the Farm Shop, the bounty of summer is waiting for you to experience.
Transcend the everyday and connect with the Los Poblanos’ mission of preservation, sustainability, community and hospitality. From seasonal lodging packages and innovative dining to cultural activities, there are many ways to experience Los Poblanos this summer. Campo's organic menus exemplify our dedication to regenerative farming, from our own farm fields to many valued relationships with local growers in our neighborhood. Relax with the calming scent of lavender amenities in each room that are made from our own plants. Find a meditative moment in the garden, explore the neighborhood on a cruiser bicycle and stargaze New Mexico's incredible night skies. We encourage you to slow down, breathe deep and enjoy farm's natural beauty and warm hospitality.
Collaboration is at the heart of what we do, with our farmers working closely with the culinary, spa and botanical product teams to exemplify the spirit of the Rio Grande Valley. We also celebrate community in our ongoing Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series with visiting farmers, producers and artisans. This summer the La Quinta Gallery is hosting a special exhibition in partnership with Tamarind Institute.* As summer gets into swing, enjoy live music on Thursday evenings with a cocktail from our Rio Grande Rescue Truck.
Join us for our favorite time of year by immersing yourself in all things lavender. Our annual Lavender Harvest Dinner offers a wine-paired menu that infuses lavender into our Rio Grande Valley Cuisine. Our Summer Wellness Retreat is an opportunity to renew, recharge and reconnect amidst the lavender fields. We are offering drop-in lavender distillation demonstrations and tours for inn guests throughout the season. Enjoy Afternoon Tea under the shade of the La Quinta portal or book a refreshing and restorative spa treatment for the full experience.

Dine with Us
Our kitchen gardens represent the collaboration between the culinary team and farmers.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the bounty of summer and experience our themed menu collaborations, special dinners and more throughout the season.
EXPLORE THE FARM
Whether you're ready to hop on a cruiser bicycle and explore all 16 miles of the Paseo del Bosque Trail, or you prefer to spend hours birdwatching by day and stargazing by night, there are many ways to discover the natural beauty of our farm and neighborhood. Right across the street, the Los Poblanos Open Space is a wildlife habitat with miles of walkable farm roads to wander. If you're seeking more adventure, we have favorite trails for hiking and mountain biking to share.
TAKE A DIP
There's no better way to spend a warm summer afternoon than lounging poolside. With shaded seating and a grassy lawn, we recommend picking up provisions from the Farm Shop, grabbing a good book and enjoying a leisurely couple of hours with nowhere to be. If you need a little more activity, hop on the treadmill in our fitness center before you kick back and relax.
Join Our Lavender Harvest
Los Poblanos has been growing, harvesting and distilling certified organic 'Grosso' lavender since 1999. Each summer, as our fields turn purple, our farmers spend mornings harvesting as the sun rises over the Sandia Mountains. Guests staying at Los Poblanos Inn are invited to join the harvest and learn more about our agricultural history. Contact the ambassador for the details and sign-up information.
Enjoy Bites from the Fields
Drop by the Inn's Front Desk to taste fresh produce harvested from the Los Poblanos farm fields that same day. A member of our farm team will share wisdom about our regenerative growing practices, and you will get to sample the delicious results. Bites could include a juicy tomato in the summertime or a sweet, crisp carrot from the fall harvest.
Visit the Farm Shop
After spending a night at the Inn, in a room stocked with our artisan lavender products, you're sure to want to bring them home with you. From these beloved lavender products and handmade jewelry to local ceramics and charming children's toys, visit the Farm Shop and find the perfect gift for each of your loved ones. Check out the Farm Foods Market at the shop entrance, and make sure to peruse our seasonal baked goods, artisan breads and espresso counter.
