Learn more about Mesa Top Farm
Mesa Top Farm is a family run, multi-generational business located on Glorieta Mesa, southeast of Santa Fe. The biodynamic farm was started by 1994 by Steve Warshawer — later joined by his wife, Colleen — and now the farm is managed by Colleen’s son, Thomas Swenson.
The farm is off-grid and produces its own solar energy, which runs their irrigation system and powers the farm. Mesa Top Farm is run as a biodynamic, self-sustaining system.
Mesa Top Farm is the founding farm of Beneficial Farms CSA, a collaborative CSA that supports over 30 farms in New Mexico and the Southwest. Steve, Colleen, and Thomas believe in the communal nature of farming and helping other farmers to succeed.
Hi there, I ran into some one with the cutest Irish doodle and they said she came from your farm? You may have some for adoption?
Hi April. Apologies for the delayed response! You’ll have to contact Mesa Top Farm directly to inquire about any dogs they might have for adoption: http://www.mesatopfarm.com.
