Khalsa Family Farms
Khalsa Family Farms is a 501c3 community-owned agricultural nonprofit in Espanola, NM providing high-quality products in our 8,600 sq ft greenhouse and three 1,200 sq ft grow tunnels.
Located on a gentle slope of farmland in Sombrillo, a village south of Española, the Khalsa Family Farms took on the challenge to regenerate neglected fields and an old apple orchard.
In 2018, we began constructing an 8,600 sq ft greenhouse, digging an underground climate battery that uses geothermal air movement to regulate seasonal temperatures. The addition of three new grow tunnels provides more protection for our vegetables during the fluctuating seasonal weather.
We grow vegetables twelve months of the year, using sustainable practices, the highest environmental awareness, and modern technology.
We take pride in caring for and beautifying this land and sustaining it for future generations, so it can continue to grow the most healthy and full-flavored produce. We use restorative and sustainable farming methods, planting only non-GMO organic seeds.
These programs extend education and service to our local community and beyond. We invite you to participate in one of these programs.
