The “Red Mill”

Red Mill Farm Preserve is a working, 748-acre farm in the heart of San Juan Valley. A tenant  manages the majority of the farm for agricultural operations; the caretaker maintains the residential portion of the property, which encompasses an historic farmhouse, caretaker’s cottage, and other outbuildings– including the little “Red Mill” from which the farm gets its name.
