About Us


Daniel Carmona has 42 years experience farming in the high-altitude short growing season of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Taos, NM, in Cerro, Arroyo Hondo, Las Colonias, and Lama.  He has been growing and selling organic food in Taos since 1977, in the roles of farmer, restaurant owner and grocery store manager.

He grows as much of his own food and seed as possible each year, so he grows the best tasting & cold-hardiest varieties that he can find.  While he enjoys the grocery and restaurant businesses, he knows that, in the near future, for restaurants and grocery stores to remain a relevant and successful part of our culture, that they must begin working in close partnerships with local farms.
