The McGinn family started growing pistachios in the Tularosa Basin in 1980. This area in southern New Mexico has an arid climate ideal for growing pistachios.

The original 40 acre farm has grown to 111 acres today with over 12,000 pistachio trees and 14 acres of wine grapes. 

The McGinn family grows the best selection of award winning pistachio nuts. We also make fabulous wines from our vineyards. We KNOW they're the best because we grow them, package them, make candy with them.....everything from the ground to the final packaged product and we guarantee you will find these Pistachios and Wines to be the best anywhere!
