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

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."

Nestled in an original, historic home designed by the father of Santa Fe style, John Gaw Meem, the Hacienda Spa is an intimate space that encourages a sensory spa experience. From the punched tin chandeliers and massive vigas of the lobby to the glistening fountain tiles of the courtyard, special details can be discovered around every corner.
