• Small Historical Farm for Sale - New Mexico

This 23-acre farm was homesteaded in the early 1800s when Hispanic and French farmers came up Canana de Alamosa from the Rio Grande. They built adobe homes and churches in two villages, Placitas and what is now Monticello.

Currently ranchers, farmers, crafts men and women join with artists, retired people and those who use computers to make a living in this charming community.
The Acequia, the historic community irrigation system governed by NM state statues, binds the community, and the clean air, water, beautiful high desert mountains and diverse wildlife complete the picture.

This farm carved out by first settlers, has gardens, pasture and mature orchard.
The comfortable 100-year-old adobe home sits on a bluff above the farmland and has been upgraded with large windows, porches, a spacious country kitchen and an adobe walled courtyard.

Close to the home is the shop/barn and drive through garage with 9'10" drive through doors. Water rights for this property are included. The property is convenient to Truth or Consequences on paved roads with breathtaking views of the San Mateo and Black Range mountains. New NMED approved septic in 2015.

Anyone moving to South Central New Mexico is making a lifestyle decision. This small farm is manageable and the weather, air and water are unique assets. We enjoy four seasons, with mild winters. Spring is balmy, and the community is busy with getting gardens in, and fruit is set on all the trees. The values here are self-sufficiency, hard work and stewardship of the land-llamas welcome.
