Something nice about visiting chile farms, is that they tend to be in valleys with beautiful scenery all around. This is a picture of one of the fields at Snake Ranch in San Antonio, New Mexico, where we get most of our late season green chile from, as well as tomatoes and cantaloupe.
Every season, I travel around to different farms to see what people are growing, how things are growing, and to find out what is new. It is an important part of improving the variety of what we sell. It also gives me a great excuse to get out my camera and go on adventures. Honestly, it is probably one of my favorite things about running a chile stand.
There’s a lot of beauty in New Mexico, and chile farms are a great example of it. I’ll post pictures of Hatch farms in the future as well.
