From our family to yours, thank you.
As we reflect on the last year, we are reminded of how lucky we are to have you all as part of the Los Poblanos extended family. The winter season is a time to slow down and take a moment for reflection and gratitude. During our own reflection time of the many things we have to be grateful for, you are on the top of our list. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to Los Poblanos, our products and to the community. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season.
In New Mexico, the days are getting shorter and cooler weather is setting in. The winter season is upon us. As our daily routines subtly shift with the weather, our skincare routines should do the same. Our seasonal facials change every few months and are thoughtfully crafted with our climate and seasonal habits in mind.
Each November we pause and reflect on the life and legacy of one of the most influential figures in the storied history of Los Poblanos: John Gaw Meem, the renowned architect behind Los Poblanos Ranch and the La Quinta Cultural Center. Meem, born on November 17, 1894, is widely considered New Mexico's greatest architect of the 20th century. Throughout his long, successful career, Meem worked on countless projects and collaborated with many leading figures in the Southwest including Ruth and Albert Simms, the owners of Los Poblanos in the 1930s.
From the first deep breath of refreshing high desert air on a crisp, sunny morning to the scent of piñon wood burning in fireplaces and chimeneas across our property, the winter season at Los Poblanos is nothing short of magical. Just ask our many repeat visitors: there's something indescribable, but utterly enchanting, about Los Poblanos this time of year. With restorative spa treatments, organic field-to-fork menus, plenty of activities and 25 acres to explore, it's easy to spend several days on the farm without ever turning on your car.
The Los Poblanos Handmade Soap Collection features unique scent combinations inspired by the land and culture of New Mexico. Each handmade, cold pressed soap has an all-natural, moisturizing base recipe, which has been developed and tested over the past ten years to provide a perfectly mild and nourishing experience. All of our bar soaps are made with all-natural high quality ingredients and essential oils. We never use palm oil or preservatives. Each bar is cured for at least three weeks to ensure it holds its shape and lasts as long as possible. Our five signature soaps highlight the many botanicals of the farm and are hand cut and cured in our production warehouse just a few miles from our lavender fields.
Campo, meaning field in Spanish, reflects our dedication to organic farming, both in our own fields and within our local food shed. As our talented culinary team imagines new menus and sources ingredients, the underlying mission is to stay close to home. On the farm, this means our culinary and farm teams work together each season and create plans to grow heirloom, organic produce.
