Founded upon a dream of a healthier life closer to nature, Chelsea & Lorenzo (Chelenzo) moved to New Mexico from New York in 2021 with their family to plant regenerative roots in the Land of Enchantment.
Set in high desert mountains of Cerrillos, New Mexico, Hacienda Domínguez offers guests to experience a farm in action, as well as the opportunity to hike daily on 350 acres just east of the Turquoise Trail (Route 14) and directly above the Galisteo River Basin. Upon the land, nature lovers, hikers and outdoorsmen alike will discover arroyos, caves, mesmerizing 360 degree vistas of the mountains that surround Santa Fe, as well as awe-inspiring sunrises and sunsets.
The Hacienda also offers other regenerative services in partnership with the mecca of holistic-minded neighbors and local businesses we have here in Cerrillos, including massage therapy, horseback riding, soil health workshops, soul-cleansing drum making, sweat hut ceremonies and herbal medicinal opportunities.

Don Lorenzo Talks with Radio Talkshow Host Estevan Gonzales on KSWV Radio 99.9 FM Santa Fe
“A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbour—such is my idea of happiness.” — Leo Tolstoy
