Welcome to Eagle Ranch, home of Heart of the Desert pistachios and wines! We’re glad you have decided to join us for an informal online tour of our pistachio groves.
In the Chinese language, the meaning for pistachios literally means "happy nut." At our location in Alamogordo, New Mexico, our happy nut, “Peppy,” greets all visitors at the entrance of Eagle Ranch Groves.
To begin the tour, click on the image of “Peppy,” or click ‘next’ at the bottom of this page.
One of the most popular attractions at Eagle Ranch is our free farm tour. These tours offer our visitors an in-depth look at just how our delicious pistachios are grown and processed. Tours are offered Monday through Friday at 1:30 PM, from September through May. June through August, tours are offered Monday through Friday, twice a day at 10:00 AM and 1:30 PM. We are happy to accommodate groups of 10 or more at other times by prearrangement.
Eagle Ranch is a self contained agribusiness which means that we do everything to the crop, from start to finish, right here on premise. Tours take about forty-five minutes, and during that time, you'll visit the field, the processing plant, and packaging and shipping departments. It's a walking tour with wheelchair accessibility.
Located in south central New Mexico, Eagle Ranch is near the white gypsum sand dunes of White Sands National Monument, the International Space Hall of Fame, historic Lincoln County (Billy the Kid country), and just a few hours drive from the famous Carlsbad Caverns. We're easy to find.
