Once your order is placed, farms harvest your order and it is delivered within a few days right to your door.
How it works
We are so happy you are interested in furthering your support for the local food system. Throughout the year, New Mexico Harvest works with nearly 80 different farmers, ranchers, and food producers from within New Mexico. Coordinating such a large group of food artisians, harvesting, aggergating, packing, and delivering all this local food every week is no easy task, but it is the best way to get local, fresh food from around the state to your doorstep each week. Keep reading to find out how we do it!
Three Ways to join!
Each week, beginning on Wednesday, we start planning the following week's harvest. Each farmer we work with tells us about their crops, expected harvest quantities, and washing and food safety requirements. We list on our marketplace just about everything they plan on harvesting that following week. Sometimes they have a bumper crop that is producing much more than they expected. We put these bumper crops into your subscription share. These bumper crops are always a great seasonal option and delicious.
Harvest & Aggergation
Everything is harvested to order. After you submit your order with New Mexico Harvest, the farmers begin harvesting exactly what you ordered. We usually order a couple "units"more, just in case damage occurs during pickup. The farmers will harvest your order on Monday & Tuesday morning and we pick the harvest up on Tuesday afternoon. The harvest is brought to our Harmonized GAP+ aggergation facility in Albuquerque and sorted for delivery.
Once all Harvest Projections have been listed on the marketplace, we open it up for our members to start a la carte ordering or customizing their share. The marketplace is open Friday 5 pm until Sunday at 7 pm. We close ordering down and begin to compile each individual farmer's and producers' orders and send it out in the form of an email or text (whatever method that farmer prefers).
Packing & Delivery
Once all produce, meat, cheese, and value added items have been sorted and ready for packing, we carefully pack each order. We supply each bag with a weekly recipe based on in-season items and list of what you ordered. All CSA orders are packed in a insulated, reusable bag. We ask that you leave used bags by your door on your delivery day so we can clean and sanitize the bag to reuse in the future.
We deliver in Albuquerque on Wednesday and Thursday. Santa Fe on Friday. Rio Rancho, Placitas, Bernalillo, Los Alamos, Espanola, White Rock, and Taos on Thursday. We are working on additional delivery locations. Please let us know if you want us to come to your town! Contact Us here.

While the marketplace is open, you are welcome to add to your share, but the baseline share is un-customizable. Because you have chosen to commit to your local food system, this tier get's 10% off Retail Price of farm fresh produce.

This member is committed to weekly shares as well, however, they can completely customize their share. Every week, your share will be curated with 7-9 items, but during marketplace hours, you can completely customize that share to have exactly what you want and need. Because you have chosen to commit to your local food system, this tier also gets 10% off the Retail Pricing of the farm fresh produce.
