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 visited during the off-season. Did not get to enjoy any tours. Cute place to sample pistachios, pecans, and wine. Lots of shopping. Shirts, hats, socks, spices, jams, toys, etc.

Every time I have visitors I take them to McGinn's. Who doesn't like a nut? Many samples of not only the different ways they have prepared their nut selection, but the offerings of different wines seems to draw my visitors to try too. Most end up taking an assortment of nuts and wine home (by the case - LOL). Tours... More

The gift shop offers unusual pistachio items, such as pistachio fudge, pistachio ice cream, and a tasting area of differently flavored pistachios. There is a whole wall of options, in addition to many other items. (We did not have time to take the tour, but I wish we had.)

We really enjoyed our visit to Alamogordo and McGinn's was a highlight. There were two pistachio farms and this was the better of the two.
