The holiday season is fast approaching, and we can't wait to spend it with you. Whether you're celebrating the holidays with us or seeking respite from a busy season, the farm is just the place to be this November and December. With crackling fireplaces, festive decor and acres of farmland to wander, a visit will prove both merry and serene. Join us at Campo for Día de los Muertos on Tuesday, November 2 and enjoy dinner specials in addition to the regular menu after you peruse our elaborate ofrenda. Take time to slow down and reconnect with loved ones with a stay this Thanksgiving and Christmas at the Inn and enjoy exclusive Campo access and incredible special menus on the day of the holiday. This season, to express gratitude for the dedication and long hours our staff has worked through the pandemic, we will be limiting our hours at Campo and the Hacienda Spa on both Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, and will be offering reservations to our lodging guests only.

Introducing the Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series

La Quinta ballroom

We are thrilled to introduce the Dr. Armin Rembe Lecture Series at La Quinta, occurring monthly beginning on October 20. Named in honor of Dr. Rembe, who passed away this spring, and inspired by his love of Los Poblanos, his curiosity, intelligence and community relations, this series aims to celebrate his legacy by promoting stimulating conversations rooted in the core values and mission of Los Poblanos. The lecture series is also a nod to the rich history of La Quinta Cultural Center of the 1930s and 1940s, when the Simms family held lectures and events that promoted the arts.

Of Hope and Honey

Beekeeping is an act of hope. There are so many variables to consider when caring for beehives. Access to clean water, sources of nectar and pollen from plants that bloom from spring to fall are all essential for a healthy bee. The added uncertainty of colony collapse, varroa mites and the diseases they might introduce, swarming and abscondment, pesticide exposure and the uncertainties of extreme climate fluctuation are challenges all beekeepers face. And yet we persist. We are fascinated by bee behavior and relationships, and understand the crucial role bees play in keeping plants and thereby humans alive.

Farm Journal: Herbs

Growing Herbs at Los Poblanos

Herbs. Just the word conjures up delightful associations of fragrance and flavor. With multiple uses across the culinary, beverage and wellness spectrum, a single herb or a blend of multiple essences can really make an experience sing. As we diversify and expand the ways herbs are incorporated in the kitchen, bar and spa, our farm team is increasing the quantity and variety of herbs grown around the farm. Thoughtful conversations between chefs, mixologists and estheticians allow creativity to begin in the farm fields and manifest in the many experiences available here at Los Poblanos. Each herb's potential is being explored and expanded.

Our Favorite Farm Foods for Fall

green chili jam

Fall is just around the corner, and soon, farm stands will begin roasting green chile and infusing the air with its unmistakable, mouthwatering fragrance. This traditional New Mexican crop is beloved in many forms, but around here, our Green Chile Jam is at the top of our list. While we could be biased, Bon Appétit calls the addictive spread "sweet, spicy, smoky and floral - best spread on toasted sourdough."

Our Distillation Process

copper lavender stills

Angel's share. Angel's breath. This is what the first delicate puff of lavender essence is called as it rises in a misty, miniature cloud from the spout of the condenser, at the end port of the copper alembic distillation still. This initial puff contains essential oil, hydrosol and the heady aroma of our organic Grosso Lavender fields. 

Hand-harvested in the early morning, our farmers deliver lavender to the distillation hut, where our distillers load the precious plant material into the base and column of the still. The rounded lower portion is filled with fresh well water and heated to the boiling point where the resulting steam pulls the oils and moisture from the lavender. As it is volatilized, the heat and pressure push it up into the swan neck - the graceful copper tube that connects the pointed dome of the still to the barrel of the condenser.
