About Our Farm

Professional Local Farm And Animal Rescue

The Red Road Farm is an animal rescue located in New Mexico, all proceeds from sales will go toward building vital infrastructure for our many rescues, accepting new rescues, medical care new and ongoing, and rising feed costs. Thank you so much for visiting us and we can't wait to bring some love from our farm and rescue to your home! 

Our Mission

Accepting any animal that is unwanted, unloved, neglected, abused, ill, injured, or simply needing a forever home where they will always be safe and cared for no matter the cost. To support this mission we shall only employ the implementation of sustainable, permaculture agricultural practices rooted in responsible and respectful stewardship and conservation. Our mission will never rely on the exploitation of natural resources.

The Beginning

Cezary and Crissie met in Chicago, Illinois in 2019. Whether it was starting an indoor hydroponics greenhouse and gourmet mushrooms lab in a 400sf apartment on Belmont Avenue or working tandem for Amazon Prime delivery services, they knew right away that they made a phenomenal, complimentary team. The progression from HappyCap Hydro and Mushrooms in Chicago to The Red Road Farm in New Mexico has been a strange journey for both of them, however, somehow exactly what they had in mind when they first started living and working together. By July, 2021 they had lived in two different states together, placed an offer on 40 acres of land in the middle of nowhere, and by August of that year they loaded up all of their projects and rescues and embarked on the latest adventure that led them to start The Red Road Farm.

 

Cezary grew up in Szczecin, Poland and mastered Psychology in Business at Kozminski University, Warsaw. He moved to Edmonton, AB CAN in 2011 to pursue his entrepreneureal dream of owning and operating his own successful business. Acting as General Manager at several restaurants he gained years of experience and an unparalleled respect for the food service industry, winning multiple regional awards for outstanding sales and customer service. In 2016 he was offered a greencard from the United States of America to pursue his dreams here, he accepted. As a child growing up in Cold War Era Poland he had dreamed of being a car salesman in America. He considered himself a "dog person". Starting a farm or an animal rescue had never crossed his mind as even a passing direction his life could turn. When a tiny, underdeveloped, abandoned goat kid landed in his lap in December 2020, at the height of the COVID19 Pandemic, he realized that he is, in fact, a goat person!

 

"If you told me three years ago that I would be rocking a baby goat to sleep each night I would never have believed you." ~Cezary

Crissie grew up in the small, rural midwest USA town of Chillicothe, Illinois. From the moment she could form words she expressed a passion for animals and helping any animal in need. When asked what she wanted to be when she grew up she always said, without a doubt, "veterinarian". A colorful academic career had her making appearances on local and regional Illinois television for her aptitude in spelling. Discovering quickly that stage fright and introversion did not a spelling bee star make, her focus returned entirely to animal and natural welfare, stewardship, and conservation. Her early years consisted of apprenticeships on working farms and conservation habitats, junior zookeeper, an appointment as a Search & Rescue Officer with The Humane Society and LASPCA in Louisiana during the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster relief efforts, as well as internships and employment with veterinary services in the Chicagoland area. She has actively researched and studied in the fields of Nootropic pharmacology for the treatment of Addiction and PTSD, sustainable and traditional indigenous stewardship, medicine, farming, and agriculture as well as animal husbandry and genetic diversity in domesticated livestock. With over 30+ years of experience with animal welfare and conservation, it was certainly not a surprise when her first instinct was to save an abandoned baby goat and teach her partner in life everything that there is to know about animal rescue and conservation. 

"If you told me three years ago that you would be rocking a baby goat to sleep each night, well yeah. Yeah, I could see that. It was only a matter of time." -Crissie

That baby goat was named Monkey. The rest is History. Welcome to our dream, The Red Road Farm and Animal Rescue!
