A Visit to Los Poblanos

We stopped by Los Poblanos Farm in Albuquerque, NM where we had a nice visit with some friendly folks and the farm animals.  This is a local farm but not a small scale farm by any means.  

Being here reminds me of my grandparents.  They had a big ranch and together they worked the land and raised a variety of livestock. They understood the cycle of life and how each organism has a purpose, nothing was wasted.

The Farm Shop
One of the things that Los Poblanos is known for is organic lavender.  They make a variety of products that are sold here at the Farm Shop.  I love the lavender soap and the salve, those are my favorite.

It was a nice visit - as always.  As much as I would love to run out and buy a farm I won't but I will continue supporting local farmers/ranchers and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Have a GREAT weekend!!!

  1. Thank you for taking us to visit the Los Poblanos Farm too! That was fun :) The organic lavender looks so wonderful. I love lavender too. I just made batches and batches of lavender and sage bath salts for a fundraiser. I've got to get more! lol

    Love the pretty honey too, oh and the sweet animals :) Farms remind me of my grandparents also.

    Have a happy day! Thank you again, Karen
