I am continually amazed at what a great place Las Cruces, New Mexico is to live. Last week I discovered another reason that I love living here: Los Poblanos Organic (LPO) Farms in Las Cruces is now doing weekly home delivery of organic fruits, veggies, and other fresh foods in select areas around Las Cruces.
The Las Cruces Farmers Market is one of my favorite places to pick up fresh, locally grown produce each week. That is where I met Charlie from LPO Las Cruces. Charlie got me hooked up with LPO farms online where I am able order fresh produces and much more each week. One of the great things about LPO Farms is that they have locations all over New Mexico. That way you can get a wide variety of fresh fruits and veggies, locally grown right here New Mexico and support our local farmers at the same time!
Originally, to make a weekly order from LPO you would have to drive out to the farm on Friday to pick up your produce. The farm pick-up location is on Snow Road, just about an eight minute drive from Picacho Hills. It is a beautiful drive, so I don’t mind doing it. But being a busy mom, home delivery is even better!
If you love fresh veggies, I would encourage you to try out LPO. It is free to sign up for an account on the LPO web site. Then you can order as much or as little as you want each week. There is no minimum weekly requirement, so if you want to skip a week it’s no big deal.
LPO Las Cruces is currently planning to begin home delivery to the Picacho Hills area next Monday, July 25, 2011. All you have to do is place your order by this Sunday, July 24th at 10 am. As long as they get a good response and have enough people ordering they will continue to do home delivery in our area.
So I’d encourage you to check it out. I ordered the Weekly Harvest Box last week and got all the fruits and veggies you see above for just $36. Even my kids are loving it! There are three ways to contact Los Poblanos:
