Meet the Farmers
Zach Cecelic Has been surrounded by the wild and agricultural lands of the arid southwest most of his life. Seeing both the good and the bad in how local agricultural practices and industry affect the natural environment, Zach's inspiration led him to a degree in Biology, with a concentration in Conservation from UNM. Today he makes his personal philosophy a practice, by creating room and habitat for all of his human and non-human friends.
Together they look forward to expanding their own farm and learning the rhythms and cycles of their newly acquired land more intimately.
The Cecelic's combined farm experience is diverse.
THEIR FARM EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:
Growing the flowers on a small flower farm and helping to craft products out of the dried material.
Worked at Skarsgaard Farm (formerly Los Poblanos Organics) for three years. This farm is a hybrid CSA with over a thousand members in Albuquerque and Northern New Mexico.
For three years they also worked on Heidi's Raspberry Farm where they grew berries, helped process the fruit, and took the berries and jam to markets to sell. Heidi’s is a small organic raspberry farm in Corrales, NM (and now Los Lunas, too) that produces fresh berries as well as delicious jam.

Jasmine Cecelic Raised in Taos, New Mexico, was surrounded by the majestic beauty of the northern New Mexican landscape all her life. Jasmine has adapted to life at an arid high elevation, and she expects the same from what she grows. An environmental activist at a young age, she continued her passion for the environment throughout college, where she majored in Ecology (through the Geography department) at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. She met her husband Zach at UNM where they combined their passions and have been growing together ever since. Together they have been researching and practicing ancient techniques, to create a cutting-edge wild farm in northern New Mexico.
