Celebrate our favorite time of the year
As the weather gets warmer and days get longer, our lovely lavender plants awaken again for another summer season. We look forward to the fields turning purple all year long, and eagerly watch as the plants begin to spike. In fact, lavender season makes us downright giddy here on the farm. And we couldn't be more excited to share all that we have to offer during this fabulous season.
Relax & restore
Our rooms are outfitted for sweet dreams and ultimate relaxation, from our own lavender spa amenities to carefully selected robes, bed linens and towels.
Los Poblanos is thrilled to introduce the newest member of their lavender apothecary line – Organic Lavender Facial Toner. We live, work and play in the high desert – and so does our skin. Organic Lavender Facial Toner provides a refreshing, hydrating experience to combat arid desert conditions, and relaxes with its calming lavender fragrance. Pair it with Los Poblanos Lavender Skin Care Oil and consider your morning skincare routine complete.
In an ongoing partnership with Hotel Emma, San Antonio's leading luxury boutique hotel located at the historic Pearl, we're thrilled to announce our lavender apothecary line will now be the bath amenity available in all of their rooms. Guests at Hotel Emma will be able to indulge in Los Poblanos bath amenities such as bath salts and lavender lotion.
"We are thrilled to join forces with such an amazing family-owned company," says Bill Petrella, President and General Manager at Hotel Emma. "Los Poblanos organic products and overall group are an excellent fit with our brand. We are committed to enhancing our guests' experience, and we hope they will love these new bath amenities as much as we do."
Lavender in the Village Festival is just around the corner! Find us there on July 7 from 9-5, across the street from the farm at the Agri-Nature Center. Come say hello at our Farm Shop tent and Education tent. The Farm Shop will be selling our artisanal lavender products, lemonade and doughnuts. Swing by the Education tent for talks from our incredible team, including Executive Chef Jonathan Perno, Garden and Landscape Manager Wes Brittenham and more.
Please note that Los Poblanos will be closed to the public for a private event the day of the festival, with exceptions for guests with Inn or Campo reservations.
Help us kick off our very favorite season of the year by joining us for any of these exciting upcoming events: Walks with Wes (farm tours with our amazing Garden and Landscape Manager and team), art and architecture tours, one of our many lavender distillations and educational experiences, yoga classes on our serene, beautiful property, lavender cocktails at Campo, a delectable lavender long table dinner or wine dinner and so much more. See you soon!
This past winter was a mild one, even by temperate New Mexico standards, and it looks as though spring will be no different. With temperatures already in the high 70s, the farm is in full-bloom mode and we couldn’t be happier about it. All across the property, stone fruit trees, daffodils, hyacinth, and irises are showing off their colors, proving that there's nothing quite as magical as springtime on the farm.
There’s an air of excitement on the farm as the winter holidays grow ever nearer. Trees sparkling with lights and mantels hung with garlands are stirring our festive spirits. But nowhere is quite as holly-jolly as over at the Farm Shop, where our third greenhouse room has just opened to the public. Packed to the rafters with tree trimmings, unique little stocking stuffers, and authentic folk art decor, it’s the place to be for holiday cheer. Stop by the Farm Shop where our wonderful staff is waiting to help you pick out the perfect gifts for everyone on you list (yourself included!).
We are beyond thrilled to introduce the newest addition to our line of hand-crafted, small batch Los Poblanos products. Meet our new Herbal Bug Repellent! Formulated with a base of lavender hydrosol, distilled from our own plants, and a blend of essential oils that are known to repel bugs. Our farmers and gardeners have been using lavender oil to deter pesky biting bugs in the fields for years, so when it came time to craft our own bug repellent it seemed only natural to use their tried and true method. And wouldn’t you know, it really works! Before releasing it to the world, the LP farmers field tested (quite literally) the formula and came back at the end of the day, unbitten and smelling great.
Lavender is near and dear to our hearts here at Los Poblanos. If you’ve been to the farm you have probably seen our 3 acre organic field filled with row upon row of our favorite botanical and maybe even purchased a product or two at the Farm Shop. What you perhaps haven’t seen is the full life cycle of our much-loved lavender plants. To us our plants aren’t just a commodity, they are living organisms that requires care, attention, and understanding. Each step in every plant’s life is incredibly important; from the initial propagation all the way through planting, growth, harvest, distillation, and finally incorporation into our lavender products. Our farmers work year round tending to the needs of our plants; protecting them for pests, weeding their beds, and making sure they have adequate water to cope with the heat of our high desert climate.
