(also known as 234 Arroyo Salado Road)
Santa Fe, NM 575-422-2238

Heading North on I-25 from Santa Fe, you will see the signs for exit 290 (US 285 South). Exit there and at the bottom of the ramp turn left, go under I-25 to a T with Old Las Vegas Hiway.
There is restaurant called Cafe Fina and a bike shop and a blinking red light at this junction. Turn right there so you are now going parallel to I-25.

Continue 2+ miles from the blinking light and watch for signs County Road 51 & Ojo de la Vaca. Turn right there (going south) under I-25.

From this turn it is 8 miles to farm; 5.35 miles to green gate at Arroyo Salado Rd.

Go south on County Road 51, across Galisteo Creek, crossing Amtrak rail lines, and ascending the mesa on winding road. Please stay in your lane and be careful of oncoming vehicles!

The road turns from paved to gravel after a couple of miles, and then to dirt after another mile. At the end of the gravel, you will pass beneath big power lines on tall wooden poles. Go 1.8 miles on the dirt road to "Arroyo Salado". Turn right, toward a green panel gate set back 20 yards from the county road.

The gate is usually locked and is controlled by a solar opener. The key pad for entering the access code is located on the gatepost to the left of the gate. The access code is 4-3-2-1. Just enter that code, the gate will open, and will close itself 60 seconds later, so do not delay in driving through. If you find the gate opened, just drive through and leave it the way you found it

Continue just over 2 miles. You will pass various signs. Keep going on Arroyo Salado road to Mesa Top Farm Loop, which begins at the red mile marker #234. Enter Mesa Top Farm Loop, which continues toward the east from Arroyo Salado Rd. It is a new road that heads gently up hill and winds around and at mile marker 37, heads down to the farm. The road in engineered for safe driving at no more than 25 miles per hour.

Road is only 4-wheel drive accessible after heavy rains. Check in advance!
