Our Local Food Sources

Local Food Sources Web

This list applies to residents in Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado

Recently, I have been hearing about various local food sources for those of us living in the Northern NM / Southern Colorado region. Hearing about these local food opportunities,  I find myself wanting to compile into one place all of the information that I’m hearing and gleaning from people. Since I want to do this for myself and for my family anyway, why not make this list of local food sources available to everyone?! So here goes….

Potatoes and Quinoa:

White Mountain Farm

Certified Organically Grown Quinoa and Potatoes
San Luis Valley
1-800-364-3019

http://www.whitemountainfarm.com

They do sell to individual customers out of their warehouse, however they prefer larger orders, so if a group were to get together to order with one person going up to the farm to pick up the order, that is of course better for them. Before placing your order you need to talk with Stephanie  in the warehouse to make sure that they have what you want and that they will be there when you come to pick it all up. Call the number above to place your order and ask to speak with Stephanie. Varieties and Prices for potatoes can be found on their website.
