Certified Organic Farms For Sale


Northeastern New Mexico contains thousands of acres of clean, well-watered farmland. At an altitude of 6,000 feet, these mountain valleys offer many opportunities for productive organic farms. Crops of certified winter wheat, oats, and barley are particularly suited to climate and soil conditions.

The land is rich, and infestations of weeds and insects are minimal.
The land is currently either fallow or planted in alfalfa without chemical fertilizers.

The New Mexico Organic Commodities Commission, a state-funded agency, is available for certification and marketing information. On lands that have not been treated with chemicals, the first crop is immediately certifiable.

I farmed certified winter wheat and heritage bean seed for Seeds of Change, which is headquartered in Santa Fe. Bush beans can be sold on contract for $3.00 a pound, delivered. I also sold wheat to a bakery on contract for $15.00 a bushel. Additionally, I sold certified organic wheat straw at $3.50 a bale, for use in straw bale houses. I am retiring from farming and offer my 100-acre (60 irrigated acres) place for sale at $250,000 (see below for complete details). The price includes a 3-bedroom house and 2-story barn.

Similar farms are currently on the market in the Maxwell, Springer, and Cimarron areas. One 80-acre irrigated farm is for sale in the Miami Mesa region for $260,000 with 80 water shares. By advertising these organic farm lands for sale (as many as 30 are for sale), we hope to bring a group of organic farmers to restore the valley to its former prosperity.
