General Description: We are located right off of I25, about 9 miles from Socorro, NM. We have a small retail shop that is open every day, where we sell the honey that we harvest along the Rio Grande, as well as a line of skin care products that we make here. The open desert is directly west of the farm, with a fantastic view of Polvadera Mountain, and there are wonderful hiking and camping spots in the nearby area. We keep bees in the summer, as well as a few sheep, alpacas, goats, geese, chickens, 4 horses, a mule, 8 large dogs and 8 cats (so no animal allergies and no additional pets, thank you). We would like help with the animals, gardens, retail, and several building projects. We use mud, stucco and recycled materials to build greenhouses, barns, and living spaces. You can learn about welding, bottle walls, strawbale construction and solar energy. We only have 3 acres here, but we have a small orchard, a greenhouse, a honey house (where we extract and bottle honey) and we are currently converting the entire farm to solar.
