Location

Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico, United States

San Cristobal is an old valley village nestled in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains with around two hundred families. It is about eleven miles from our property to the outskirts of Taos. It is 23miles to Taos ski valley and Red River Ski are 22 miles away.

Some of the families in our valley date back several hundred years. San Cristobal is surrounded by national forest and there are several scenic hikes close to our property. The San Cristobal creek runs through the valley and many of the gardens are watered by the ditches, diverted from the mother creek. These are called acequias and the laws surrounding these date back to the Spaniards.

D.H. Lawrence ranch where Frieda and D.H. Lawrence lived and are now buried is also located in San Cristobal, five miles from our property. Lama Foundation is a commune and spiritual community, dating from the sixties. It is located on Lama Mountain, 8.3 miles from San Cristobal, about fifteen minutes. Lama Foundation is best known for the book "Be here Now" written by Ram Dass who used to live at Lama Foundation. Visitors are welcome and can partake in the many workshops, summer dinners (donations accepted) Sufi dancing and Sabatth. Thanksgiving dinner is open to the public (donations recommended).

We have returned to NM after many years working as professionals in stuffy offices. Our family love the experience of creating an eco friendly, farm based place for those who wish to be close to nature and live of the land. Creating an eco friendly environment is an ongoing process. Our berries, fruits and vegetables are organically cultivated. The chickens are free ranging and the growth season has been extended by a green house. All of our casitas and cabins have wood fire stoves. The cabins are also heated by energy efficient air-heat pumps powered by solar. Eventually we would like to be totally off the grid and supply all of our electricity from wind and solar energy. The eco lodge is part of a recycling program and uses only use eco friendly cleaners, dish and laundry detergents. A grey water system and a large holding pond with well and acequia water are being created to irrigate our expanding Goji plantation. The Eco lodge's water comes from four deep wells, fed by mountain aquafirs. Here is a recent article in Taos News about our goji berry farm. (Website hidden by Airbnb) Eric, my husband and I are avid travelers and our children journeyed with us from the time they were babies. Now our two older children are also Airbnb hosts. We look forward to seeing you at our farm!
