A bit about us

“Good Food, Good Life”

La Buena Vida Farm is a small, biodiverse family farm.  We offer seasonal CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) throughout the year to our community and surrounding area.  We also sell at various farmers markets throughout our growing season.

  

We believe in “authentically grown food”.  For us, this means that we treat our soil and livestock in an old world manner that embraces the love and deep appreciation for the food we grow and ground we tend.  We are responsible for our children’s future and must keep unique seeds, livestock breeds and family agricultural heritage alive.

It is our goal to provide a full diversity of arid-lands adapted heirloom crops throughout the year for our family and community.  Although we are not certified organic, our growing practices exceed the standards for certification.  We never use commercial fertilizers or pesticides.  Our soils are nourished as in the natural world with farm-derived organic matter. Green manures and cover crops are used along with crop rotations to maintain biological diversity and to ensure that our crops and soil maintain enough essential nutrients.  We practice a Zuni influenced style of sunken bed gardening with ample cover material in attempt to collect and preserve our precious rainwater.

Most importantly, we treat your food with the same care and concern in which we provide to our own children. We take great pride in what we offer and always make every effort to ensure your satisfaction.
