Huerta Los Tamarindos, located just a mile from the Sea of Cortez and San Jose’s estuary, is a property dating back to the 19th Century. Los Tamarindos was first used to cultivate sugar cane, one of the area’s major exports during that time, and due to its fertile soil quickly became one of the region’s most important farms.
After lying fallow for several years, the farm was rededicated to the cultivation of organic produce in 2003, a novel concept for this area at the time that has since seen intense growth.
The 17-acre farm is divided into an event area (with space for 400 guests), fields under year-round cultivation, and the newly renovated historic ranch house built in 1888.
Currently Huerta los Tamarindos is a very active producer of organic produce in Los Cabos, providing fresh herbs and vegetables for local restaurants (Tequila, Casa Natalia’s Mi Cocina, and others) as well as exporting herbs and vegetables to the United States.
Los Tamarindos has gone through the rigorous process of obtainng organic certification from Primus Labs and The United States Department of Agriculture.
Take a look at this video:
Guests arrive and congregate under the large mango tree where they are offered fresh juice or iced lemon grass tea. As this is a working organic farm with strict hygiene standards, they will be asked to wash and disinfect their hands before the tour begins.
Baskets and scissors will be distributed for collecting produce from the field, and participants will receive an instructional flier with information on organic agriculture.
As the tour continues to the field, the guide, an agricultural engineer with vast experience as an organic farmer, will point out different aromatic herbs and vegetables, demonstrate the proper way to pick each of them, and explain what it takes to become a certified organic farm and how this differs from conventional farming.
The last 10 minutes of the tour will be devoted to questions and answers from the tour group.
There will be an opportunity for guests to use the restroom or have another glass of juice or iced tea. The tour will end in the ranch house, affording guests the opportunity to purchase a variety of products produced on the farm, including tomato sauce, and infused oils.
The Organic Restaurant at Huerta Los Tamarindos is now open! Enjoy organic Mediterranean and Mexican food served fresh from the farm.
(Except Tuesday) – 12pm to 10pm, Sunday Brunch 10am – 2pm
We really wish you to take a chance and visit this special place to see a real organic farm in Mexico and taste their excellent Menu.
