Green & Red Chile U-Pick & Farm Market Now Open!
Start making room in your freezer for the best tasting Green Chile in New Mexico as the opening of the 4th Annual Green Chile U-PICK at Big Jim Farms in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque is set to begin August 22nd! Enjoy the scenic views of the Rio Grande as you get outside to our 9-acre farm to pick your own Green Chile! This is a must do New Mexican experience that will turn into your yearly family tradition. Promoted as a safe social distancing activity for families this Fall!
Farmer Big Jim insists on growing only the traditional variety chiles because of the massive flavor it packs and not to mention they are all organically grown. You will have the opportunity to visit the 9 acre farm, pick your own green chile and get it roasted onsite. There will also be already pre-picked chile for sale if you want to just kick back and enjoy the farm atmosphere.
Big Jim Farms will be open every day from August 22nd until October 31st from 9am to 5pm.
This year Big Jim has also planted other fruits and veggies for U-PICK at his farm. (Variety depends on season and availability) but includes watermelons, cantaloupe, tomatoes, specialty peppers, red chile, pumpkins and more.
There will also be a farm market with already picked fruits & veggies available for sale. Including our famous salsa, chile ristras, and specialty hot peppers. Pumpkin picking will start end of September through October. Curbside pickup available! Orders can be summitted online starting August 22nd.
This will be a great family outing and farm experience. Meet the farmer and get to see where your food is grown! We will be following Covid-19 safety protocols including social distancing, face masks, and sanitize stations. No groups bigger than 6 or more. All areas are 100% outdoor and you will have plenty of room to spread out throughout the nine acres of farmland.
