Hacienda Spa at Los Poblanos
We are thrilled to announce the opening of our Hacienda Spa on July 1. Inspired by a tile design by John Gaw Meem that reads Dedicada a La Vida Generosa, we are overjoyed to further enrich our unique brand of well-being, the "Generous Life." Surrounded by astonishing natural beauty, our guests have craved spa experiences on our property for years. The Hacienda Spa offers a new way for visitors and locals alike to relax and connect with well-being at Los Poblanos.
Anticipating Lavender Season on the Farm
We love all the seasons on the farm, each perfectly flowing into the next with its own lovely distinctions. But summer really sings here at Los Poblanos, and our organic Grosso lavender is one of the high notes.
July 11 - 14, 2021
Lavender season is just around the corner, and we are so delighted to usher in our favorite time of year with our upcoming Summer Wellness Retreat. Indulge with three nights on the farm and exclusive small group sessions designed to embrace well-being, all while being immersed in the world of Los Poblanos during peak lavender season. From skincare workshops and culinary demonstrations to wellness classes and a fully organic five-course dinner, this retreat is the ultimate way to experience well-being the Los Poblanos way. Join us, breathe deep and escape it all on our 25-acre farm.
As summer arrives, all the previous season's preparations culminate in a flurry of activity across the property. From preparing the fields and turning in cover crops to laying out rows in the fields for planting and laying drip tape for effective watering, our dedicated farmers have been preparing for the arrival of our favorite season. There's no doubt our beloved lavender fields get most of the attention as the plants begin to flower, but the farm is busy tending to even more than lavender. We're excited to share what else is going on during this special time of year.
Summer, it's our favorite season.
We are so delighted to usher in our favorite season on the farm. As summer arrives and our beloved lavender fields begin to showcase their shades of purple, life on the farm starts buzzing with excitement.
Here at Los Poblanos, we are proud to practice regenerative agriculture. Not only do we grow crops without chemicals, we also take action to give back to the land so that we leave the earth better than we found it. Our dedicated farm team works hard to incorporate five healthy soil principles in our daily practices, aiming to set in motion a cycle of healthier soil, healthier plants, healthier people and healthier ecosystems.
As we transition from celebrating Women's History Month to Garden Season, there are two remarkable women - from past and present - who perfectly represent the overlap between these two themes.
Welcome Our New Rooms Manager, Beo Afantodji
It is our great pleasure to welcome new, dynamic personalities to the farm. With a complex and growing business model, we know that the success of Los Poblanos truly lies in the strength of the team. Searching high and low, we aspire to employ the best in the industry, whether they're coming from down the street or across the country. Today, we're thrilled to introduce Beo Afantodji, our new Rooms Manager, who moved cross-country from New England to join the Los Poblanos family.
As cold days recede, spring fever is in full swing on the farm. Every year, our farm team collaborates closely with our culinary, mixology and product teams, exchanging ideas and identifying goals for the upcoming months ahead. These thoughtful conversations help determine plans for the field layout and crop rotation, giving the farm team a clear plan for the new season. Currently, trays of seedlings line the tables in the greenhouse as artichokes, kale, onions and peppers begin to sprout and grow, waiting their turn to be nestled into the fields. Carrot, beet and turnip seeds will soon be planted directly into the cool soil. Small harvests of herbs and greens begin to come from the hoop house, too.
