We are a small family farm located in the beautiful Rio Grande Valley in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are certified organic and grow a variety of mixed vegetables and cover crops. We also have a small peach orchard. We grow, harvest, package and deliver all products ourselves, assuring maximum quality control, cleanliness and food safety. We sell at local farmers markets, retail stores, institutions and restaurants.
At North Valley Organics we believe that understanding and respecting the biological life in soil and plants is the driving force behind organic agriculture. As organic farmers, we are always growing two crops: one cash crop for us and one crop that is dedicated to the soil microbes that sustain all life. Based on these principles, we have developed a living mulch, minimal till cover-crop system for growing fresh market vegetables that allows us to farm intensively while simultaneously feeding our soil. We are inspired by the writings of Rudolph Steiner and share the biodynamic worldview on agriculture. We also value the permaculture principals of holistic ecosystem management. We irrigate from ancient gravity-fed ditches while supplementing with a very modern system of drip irrigation. We also take a biological approach to solving the challenges of nutrient management, pest control and soil health by using compost teas and beneficial microbial inoculants.
For 2020 come visit us at the Downtown Growers Market at Robinson Park every Saturday morning beginning in May!
