Whether you're celebrating the holidays or seeking respite from a busy season, the farm is just the place. With bright skies, crackling fireplaces, festive decor and acres of farmland to wander, a holiday stay is both merry and serene. View our accommodations.
November is a beautiful month at Los Poblanos, and La Quinta is the perfect setting to gather for an elegant long table dinner, celebrate the history and architecture of Santa Fe's renowned La Fonda on the Plaza (and architect John Gaw Meem's birthday), or enjoy hand-crafted tea with friends and family accompanied by live classical guitar. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events this fall.
We are thrilled to share two new gins developed by our team of farmers, gardeners, herbalists, distillers and mixologists expressing the flavors of Los Poblanos’ historic farm and gardens, and the essence of the Rio Grande Valley. Our western-dry style gin was born by studying and sampling the wide variety of flowers, herbs and native plants that thrive on our small organic farm. This unique blend of 16 botanicals includes piñon resin, rose, violet, hawthorn and chamomile.
Breathe in the scent of the desert after rain, New Mexican piñon trees or the Los Poblanos lavender fields with our botanical fragrance collection. Each fragrance is made with pure essential oils distilled in small batches from locally sourced botanicals. Add a touch of aromatherapy to your day or give the perfect gift for anyone with a connection to the Land of Enchantment.
Step back from the brisk pace of fall and catch your breath at the Hacienda Spa. Whether you need a few quiet hours to yourself or a spa day with friends before the rush of the holidays, now is the time to book your seasonal treatments. As we transition into fall and the air gets cooler and drier, support your skin with a hydrating restorative facial or warming, soothing massage. Make a day of it with reservations for Afternoon Tea or a fresh organic meal at Campo.
Cool, crisp mornings mark the arrival of autumn in the high desert. Roadside stands infuse the air with the unmistakable scent of roasting green chile while hot air balloons float across the horizon. Experience the best of New Mexico with a stay at Los Poblanos this fall. Relax into the season at the Hacienda Spa with botanically-based treatments. Enjoy Campo’s farm-driven organic menus and taste the abundance of the harvest with Rio Grande Valley Cuisine. Wander through the Farm Shop and discover our signature lavender products, Farm Foods collections and more.
As summer days slowly shorten and extend into cool evenings, now is the perfect time for a Los Poblanos escape. Whether you treat yourself to a few peaceful nights away, indulge in a treatment at the Hacienda Spa or dine with friends and family, we have just the thing to help you savor generous living.
Late summer on the farm is a time of increasing harvest and lots of weeding. The rains we have gotten have helped with the scarce water supply, though we have been modifying our irrigation and planting practices over the last few years as we become more concerned with the flow of the river, the ditches and the spotty monsoon season.
Fruit trees are integrated throughout the landscape at Los Poblanos. We grow a wide variety, each with a distinct season and individual flavor. The farm team meets regularly with the culinary team, and much of what we plant reflects direct requests from chefs, bakers and others who help us to develop a farm that supports the diversity of Los Poblanos. From the mulberry syrup in your cocktail, to a plum tart in the restaurant and the blossoms and branches that adorn our public spaces, fruit trees enliven every season on the farm. Some are hardy and reliable, while others have challenges that can lead to bounty or failure.
Capturing the taste of summer
Lavender lemonade is a longstanding summer favorite at Los Poblanos. After a hot day in the fields or an afternoon bike ride, there’s nothing more refreshing. For many years we made our lemonade in small batches from a family recipe, cold-steeping culinary lavender in fresh-squeezed lemon juice for the best flavor, serving for special occasions and sharing with lodging and dining guests.
