PistachioLand- Pistachio Tree Ranch is owned and operated by the McGinn...

PistachioLand- Pistachio Tree Ranch is owned and operated by the McGinn Family and is home to 12,300 trees and 6,000 wine producing grapevines. The original trees were planted in 1980 and the first nuts were harvested in 1984. Today, Pistachio Tree Ranch is a fully integrated farm where the McGinn Family grows pistachios, makes pistachio candy and packages pistachio products sold on their farm and around the United States. Arena Blanca Winery features the McGinn Family's wines produced on the farm from grapes grown in their vineyard. The World's Largest Pistachio monument was finished in 2008 and was built as a tribute to Tom McGinn, whose vision was to grow pistachios in the New Mexico desert. It stands 30 feet tall and has been featured in New Mexico Magazine, National Geographic Traveler, and Parade Magazine. It was filmed in 2010 in the movie, "This Must Be The Place," and on the History Channel's "Only in America" with Larry the Cable Guy in December 2012. Named a New Mexico Treasure by the NM Cabinet Secretary of Tourism, June 2014, on New Mexico Television episode 3. Visit the farm and winery year around, open daily. Motorized Farm Tours Daily. Call ahead for groups larger than 6 people. Weather permitting.

We only planned to stop, buy pistachios and head out again in as short a time as possible. When we got inside, there wasn't just one kind of pistachio but an array. In the tasting area, I tasted most flavors (maybe next time I'll taste them all). I liked the Ranch but my favorite was the lightly salted. I prefer... More

This is too fantastic! I made a quick stop here because I only had a few minutes, but it was worth it. Probably 40 different flavors of pistachio with free tasting samples available. I did not have time to take the tour, but it was well worth the photo op just to stop.

Great place to try all different flavors of pistachios and wine. Also, be sure to take the tour and learn all about how pistachios are grown and harvested. Samples were amazing and their ice cream is delicious.

It's basically a store that sells nuts, but don't let that scare you. It is actually really cool, we missed the last tour dang it, but enjoyed walking around. They offer plenty of free samples. Managed to pry some cash from my pocket, so you know it was good, I'm not usually an easy mark for places like this, but... More

Driving by on return from business trip and decided to stop. We arrived a few minutes before opening. Rather than ignore the car at the gate, an employee surprised us, came out and opened the gate early, welcoming us. Had a fresh cup of coffee, samples of their delicious nuts and brittle - and bought a few bags to take... More

This place is great. A lot of different things to buy as souvenirs. Wine tasting was nice. We booked a tour and would have waited for an hour. The guide girl talked with the manager and we were provided a private drive. This was very thoughtful. The tour was interesing and very informative. Nice memories to take back to Europe.

One of the ladies that give the tasting wine embarred me. I didn't know there were only 3 samples of the wine, and I went and asked for a 4th one when this girl yelled " She already had 3 with me." I think the proper way of doing it was to get closer to me and just tell me... More
