Water is the most precious resource we have, and without thoughtful consideration, the importance of this treasured life source can be overlooked. With our extensive farming initiatives here at Los Poblanos, it could be very easy to use more water than necessary. However, stewardship is one of our foundational core values and we actively work to use water in careful, strategic ways.
The Pueblo Peoples of the southwest had created acequia systems to irrigate their dryland farming long before the Spaniards arrived with the systems that for them originated in the Middle East. Drawing water from the Rio Grande, acequias are still at work in New Mexico today. Just like natural rivers and streams, they create agroecosystems that promote soil conservation and the creation of healthy soil, while also forming wildlife habitats. These gravity-flow ditches are maintained by the community under an elected official called the mayordomo.
Join us each Saturday in October to soak up the glorious fall weather and check out our new Rio Grande Valley Rescue Squad truck. It will be stocked with artisan drinks from 11am until 4pm, and live music will be playing from 12pm to 2pm.

As the weather is cooling off, it's time to heat things up with our amazing Los Poblanos Hot Sauce. A favorite of our guests and employees, you will find the Los Poblanos Hot Sauce in every office and on every table around the farm. Hand-crafted by the Campo culinary team using organic hot peppers grown on the farm, this small-batch hot sauce is as good as it gets.
Over the past few years, we have seen the love for our Lavender Peppermint Cleansing Shampoo, Conditioning Créme and Lip Balm grow. Knowing you've loved this scent combination, we are thrilled to announce we've grown our all-natural Lavender Peppermint collection to now include Body Wash and Lotion. Lavender is historically known for its naturally occurring antiseptic and healing properties while peppermint is known to uplift and cool.
