Our hemp products are part of a larger vision for Turquoise Mountain Farms. We have made every effort possible to promote a responsible, sustainable and traditional form of agriculture during this journey to produce a top-quality final CBD product.
While maintaining these cornerstone values that the Taos community holds so dear, we strive to produce food and medicine in a way that makes economic sense. We are transcending from ordinary agriculture to a way of life which preserves culture, shares sustainable farming techniques with the community, and creates a viable source of income. This is our return for bringing food, water and medicine to the people.
These potent and organically grown hemp plants are cultivated with our local values as a priority. By utilizing a very old water system in the Taos Valley which is comprised of many Acequias (ditches which flow from the mountains, moved only by gravity), we're able to continue the tradition of coming together as a community to annually maintain these waterways that benefit not only farmers, but the rest of the local population.
As the water flows down from mountain streams and into these carefully placed channels, the path of the water resembles the vascular system in the human body as it splits off in countless directions irrigating farmable land throughout Taos. It is by this distribution of surface water that the ground is able to be saturated and the water purified as it seeps deep into the earth. These Acequias are critical in this high desert region for recharging the aquifers from which the community draws clean water. This process is vital for the areas water supply.
Along the flowing waters, many trees and habitat areas are able to thrive where there would be an otherwise desolate landscape. This helps to sustain wildlife and biodiversity on a large scale.
Beyond hemp, it is our goal to assist aspiring farmers in pursuing their own endeavors as providers for the community. With over 13 years of professional experience with land care in the area, Turquoise Mountain Farms is an active participant in the farming community in providing essential equipment, knowledge and labor to those wanting to engage in responsible agriculture with our limited and precious natural resources.
We are always open to new collaborations and projects which aim to educate people on the importance of sustainable farming and offer opportunities of employment where people can connect with the earth while producing goods for the people. Feel free to contact us by phone or email for more dialogue on how we can work together to create a more beautiful place through agriculture!
