Can’t Miss It!
Large establishment, sort of a one stop shop for everything pistachio. The shop has sweets, nuts, clothing and all kinds of souvenirs so it’s a good place to pick up gifts or stocking stuffers. There’s a tour of the farm offered (we did not go) and a giant statue of a pistachio for photo opportunities.

Great Stop!!
A wonderful roadside attraction for families and friends to enjoy. All of the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The tour of the grape and pistachio orchards was an added bonus! Learned a lot about one of my favorite nuts. They have tons of collectibles and souvenirs to choose from as well as some free samples of their nuts and brittle. We really enjoyed the wine tasting with Tara! She was extremely knowledgeable and patient when helping us with our purchases.

Fun Stop
Aug 2021
The farm tour was well worth the small ticket price. I learned so much! The little tram is comfortable and even though I went in the heat of the day, it’s covered so it wasn’t too hot. You drive past the vineyards and learn about how they are grown and harvested. Then you drive past the Pistachio orchards and learn all about how they were able to start growing them in New Mexico. I had never seen a pistachio tree before, it was fascinating. What they grow is all only sold in their store, so the nuts couldn’t be fresher, the guide said they also make the candy there too. The pistachio chocolate brittle is amazing and I am kicking myself for not buying more!

Great Photo Opportunity
This place is such a fun gimmick! The largest pistachio in the world makes for a great road trip photo. It’s just a big excuse to stop and spend money. The pistachios are delicious. There are samples to prove it. I enjoyed the bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon that I purchased.

Thank you for visiting! We enjoy making our own wines, candies, flavored nuts, cookies, fudge, and more! We're glad you enjoyed our samples and photos with the World's Largest Pistachio, a tribute to our father, the farm's founder.

Something for everyone.
Jun 2021 • Friends
The best part of stopping at Pistachio land besides taking a picture with THE pistachio , had to be the store. The different flavors of nuts can be sampled. I love the garlic/ green chile mix and the works. Which combines numerous flavors in the same bag. The nuts are always fresh, the variety of local specialties is vast and if that isn't enough, stop to sample the wines and try their icecream. No one can leave not finding something unique or for the traditional connoisseur a fresh, tasty, pistachio fresh off the farm.

There definitely IS something for everyone inside of PistachioLand! We hand-craft many delicious products right here on the farm and offer free samples. From wines, to cookies n fudge, many candies and flavored nuts, there is something you will want to take home with you. Many unique gifts from New Mexico and food products are also great souvenirs to take home too. We appreciate your feedback and hope you have the chance to come back and see us!

Great Samples
Stopped buy to see the largest Pistachio and left full on samples and great treats. Although we did not take the tour due to time issues we were able to enjoy many samples before we bought the ones we loved.
