Exactly what I needed. Short of moving into a room there, it was as enjoyable as could be.
Native Plants Walk
Wes Brittenham, our Director of Horticulture and native plant expert, will lead a foraging walk focused on identifying native plants and their various culinary and healing uses. Discover herbs, flowers and vegetables that have been grown in New Mexico for centuries. You'll have the chance to try herbal teas made with ingredients harvested from our property and follow a short guided meditation through our labyrinth to give your day a calm, refreshing start.
Taste your way around our organic farm with our wonderful team of farmers. You'll learn about how we grow the highest quality food by employing sustainable, regenerative farming methods. The autumn harvest is a very special time on the farm, with different crops coming out of the ground every day. From squash, root vegetables and leafy greens, learn how to harvest vegetables for peak flavor from our dedicated experts. We'll also guide you in a short workshop to make an autumn ornament that will add a distinctly Southwestern touch to your home.
Botanical Cocktail Demo
Bar Campo cocktails are renowned for their creative compositions and unique farm-to-bar ingredients. From infused spirits to house-made bitters and amari, the bartending team is constantly experimenting with flavors derived directly from the farm. This interactive demo and tasting - led by Dylan Storment, our Director of Wine & Spirits, and the Bar Campo team - will give you a behind-the-scenes look at how new cocktails are created using freshly harvested ingredients and botanical infusions.
Historic LP Farm Film Screening
View the premiere screening of historical footage of the Los Poblanos farm in its heyday. This recently uncovered film reveals what life was like around the Los Poblanos farm and John Gaw Meem-designed buildings in the mid-1930s. With commentary and context provided by Executive Director, Matthew Rembe, who grew up at Los Poblanos, as well as other notable panelists, this is a glimpse into our agricultural past unlike you've ever seen before.
Cooking with Fire Culinary Demo
Our outstanding culinary team, led by Executive Chef Jonathan Perno, a 2020 James Beard Award finalist, will guide a demo that provides a closer look at how Campo uses fire as a primary - and primal - cooking method. Drawing from deep-seeded traditions in Spanish, Mexican and Native American cultures, the Campo team uses fire to sear, smoke and steam food with delicious results. Witness our chefs at work over the grills and around our outdoor pit oven, and taste bites pulled right from the flames. You'll come away with a deeper insight into our culinary philosophy and inspired to fire up your own grill at home.
The retreat was just great. Perfect length of time, perfect amount of workshops.
