Danielle's picture

The Gavilan Farmstead and Trading Post is the Shattuck family's ranch and homestead located north of Lindrith, NM (In an area that was once known as Gavilan, NM).
The Lindrith area features spectacular woodlands of tall Pinon and Juniper trees, abundant and diverse wildlife, pastures, and breathtaking canyon lands.

Here at the farm we raise a diverse offering of vegetables, along with meat from our goats, cattle, and heritage hogs as well as eggs from our pastured laying hens. Our farming methods are not certified anything, nor practiced rigidly, but are a collection of principles and designs such as; Beyond Organic, Permaculture, Holistic Management, Holistic planned grazing, Humane, Low-stress, minimal-tillage, etc. All of which are intended to produce chemical free wholesome food, promote a healthy ecology on the land in our care and provide a good low-stress life for our animals and ourselves.

Some of our residents also produce various arts and crafts that are offered for sale and can be seen (and purchased!) on our Etsy page

We also offer farm internships that are available to those that are interested in helping out in exchange for education, food, and an awesome place to stay. (See our "Internships" section for details)
