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.
