Inspired from the waters of the Rio Grande River to the forests of the Sangre de Cristo mountains

Persimmon Moon Farm is located in Arroyo Hondo, outside Taos, NM. We offer hand made small batch skin care and herbal products. The botanical ingredients are grown on our small farm or wild foraged from the diverse biomes found from the Rio Grande River basin to the alpine forests of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range.

Beginning to end, we handcraft our products in a way that reflects our relationship to the environment, these wild places, and our community.

Restore balance

Every decision made on the farm prioritizes restoring and caring for our soils and surrounding ecosystem first. 

We are trying to farm in a way that is in harmony with nature.

Compost supports soil microbiology, helping us grow healthy plants without the addition of harsh herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers.

We only use ecological methods like applying compost, cover crops, organic fertilizer, and minerals to feed the soil that in turn feeds the plants.

Conserve Water

Conserve water for the precious resource it is in the southwest high-desert climate.

Capture and keep it in the soil, using techniques to concentrate a slow release of water, and selecting plants with low water needs, that are native and draught tolerant.

Utilizing keyline design and plowing based on a set of principles and techniques that works with the natural land contour patterns to restore and increase the depth and fertility of the soil, while increasing its water holding capacity.

Build Soil

Healthy living soil is the base for everything else. We build soil using cover crops and waste from the farm to create organic, biological compost which acts as a natural fertilizer that improves water usage, reduces erosion, and supports healthier crops.

Keep the soil covered, keep a living root in the ground year-round, this also helps keep the soil biology happy, moisture in the ground and reduces erosion.

No chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or pesticides are ever used. 

Reduce Waste

Work to build a regenerative loop, where waste in one area of the farm produces feed, fuel, ingredients, or nutrients for another.

Minimize packaging materials, choose paper over plastic, natural non-toxic dyes and inks, utilize recycled materials that are biodegradable.

We also work with local sources to divert waste (plant, tree trimmings, leaves, wood chips, compost materials, coffee grinds, etc.), that would otherwise be dumped or burned.

Compost, recycle, reduce, reuse. 

Kate Mullen Farmer Persimmon Moon Farm

Farmer + MAKER

Hi! I'm Kate Mullen, a farmer and maker, with a love for plants, photography, traveling, cooking, foraging, and woodworking.

I feel grateful and honored to grow and work with the magical plants and trees in our area.

I’m listening to the land and sky every day and following the moon and stars at night.

I’m a student learning how to care for the land, plants, insects, and wild animals. 

I believe that farming can help mother nature heal our land while supporting our food security and health. 

I hope you too are inspired to grow and create.

Hydrosols | Plant Waters

Each handcrafted hydrosol is steam distilled in our beautiful copper alembic stills. We use the old methods to produce a quality product you won’t find on commercial farms or as an essential oil byproduct.

We only use fresh plant material in our distillations, harvested by hand and aligned with the lunar cycles when possible.

You will find our hydrosols are vibrant and fresh.

These form the basis of our hand-bottled home and body care offerings.

All our products are free of GMOs, parabens, phthalates, and dyes. It’s important to us to show respect for the environment at each step in the process. Our aim is to bring you closer to the wild places in northern New Mexico we so love. Our products are also cruelty-free.
