Anyone thinking of joining a CSA?

Beneficial Farms could be a good option for you. I support them because they work with 40 different farms in our food shed (within 300 miles) and run a year-round CSA. They are based in Santa Fe, but have one current location for pickup in Albuquerque. Check out there website for information such as all their past CSA boxes, and what farms they work with!


They have a vegetable share for $25/week, meat share for $10/week, cheese share for $12/week and an egg share for $4/week. As well as a marketplace that you can add extra items on to at any point you want.

My husband, Robert and I hosted our first Benefiical Farms CSA distribution on Friday. We are distributing from the Kosmic Trading Post in Nob Hill -- a cooperative of healers in Albuquerque (if you've never stopped in, have a look at all their beautiful stuff).  This week the vegetable share was - 5 pink lady apples, 8 purple potatoes, 1 bag of sprouts, 1.5 lb bag of shelled peanuts, 1 lb. bag of frozen figs or apricots, and a jar of chutney! And everything within our local food region! Please consider supporting the farmers that grow organic/chemical-free vegetables in our region by going to and signing up for the CSA!

Are you a land owner looking for someone to farm your land? Are you a farmer looking for land to farm? Or maybe you're a beginning farmer looking for a mentorship or internship opportunity with an experienced farmer? We're working on expanding our Central New Mexico LandLink program. Check out our website to see if we can help. We are in the process of inputing our "Seeker" listings, so stay tuned.


The Central New Mexico LandLink is an effort to connect entrepreneurial farmers and ranchers looking for land and farming opportunity to agricultural landowners, and farm and ranch internship and mentorship possibilities. 


If you have any questions please contact us at:

I noticed its getting down below freezing on Saturday in the Albuquerque area...29-31. Is this low enough to worry about cherries, apricots, and peaches? My fruit is already growing!
