Please join us for a tour at Los Poblanos

Friday, April 5th at 12:00 noon.


Los Poblanos is on an award-wining, historic inn and organic farm located in the Rio Grande River Valley.  Set amongst 25 acres of certified organic lavender fields, enormous cottonwood trees and lush formal gardens, the farm began cultivating lavender over 15 years ago in fields with centuries of agricultural history.  We use steam-distillation process to extract the organic essential oil, enduring absolute purity to create an authentic product directly connected to the land itself.

The lavender fields are tended by hand without the use of pesticides or fertilizers and harvested at the optimal time each year to yield the highest quality essential oil.  Produced in small batches, time and care goes into each hand-crafted product.

Distillation demo and production tour.  April 5th, 2019  12:00 noon.   No lunch provided.

Food items available to purchase in the gift shop.

Where: 4803 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, Los Ranchos De Albuquerque, NM 87107
