In 2023 we are celebrating our 3rd CSA season! CSA members receive a weekly "share," loaded with Red Willow Center organic produce. Funding provides additional support for Farming expenses and Youth Internships. Click the link below for more information about becoming a member and supporting our mission through our CSA!
Each year we host Pueblo youth interns for the duration of the farming season. In the 2023 season, 12 interns began the season by engaging in conversations about farm operations, cultural traditions, and food systems. Interns helped prepare the farm for the coming season, including soil prep, planting seedlings, sharpening tools, building infrastructure, and more.
During the summer, our interns were involved in all aspects of farm life including planting, cultivating, harvesting, washing, and packing over 30 different crops. Interns also ran our farmers market and CSA, interacting with consumers and community members, and passing on the knowledge they gained throughout the season.
At our farmers market, we sell our freshly harvested, pueblo-grown, organic produce which supports youth education at our farm. We also host vendors from the community who are local farmers, and small food business owners. Our market is not only a place to support local vendors, but also a time for community connection.
Our Farmer's Market is open Wednesdays, May through October, 11am - 2pm.
Our market is currently open to all.
All Pueblo members receive 30% off.
The Taos Pueblo Recovery Works supports clients by offering individualized treatment programs that emphasize restoring their connection to the community and traditional values. Recovery Works clients work on farm tasks two days a week for two hours each day. Their help has been invaluable to our farm!
Red Willow Center is committed to our mission by providing free seeds to Pueblo community members. Our Center host commercial and traditional seeds, for more information on how you can access these seeds; please send us a message!
We have multiple avenues to distribute our food; Fresh Rx, Angel Fire and Talpa farmer's market, and Pueblo Health organizations.
Fresh RX is a collaboration with the New Mexico Farmers' Marketing Association (NMFMA), which helped identify those living in multi-generational households within Taos Pueblo and provided them with a weekly bag of our fresh Red Willow Produce.
In 2023, Fresh Rx supported the Red Willow Center in providing our fresh produce to 15 Taos Pueblo families at no cost to them.
