"You Pick It" Raspberry Field

Located in the beautiful foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Our raspberry fields are grown with attention to every detail.  No herbicides or pesticides are used on the crop, and customers often eat their berries straight from the vine.

Six different varieties of raspberry (Carolinas, autumn brittens and autumn bliss, heritage, polentas, and polkas) are grown on the ranch, each with a slightly different flavor and maturing at slightly different times.

The "You Pick It" Raspberry Field is open from mid-August until mid-October, but THE CROP IS WEATHER DEPENDENT. 

Field Hours:
The field is typically open Tuesday through Sunday, 9am - 4pm. It is occasionally closed on either Mondays or Fridays, depending on field conditions.

 

 

explore the nursery

Josephine Brizal, our chief grower, works closely with Linda Trujillo in the greenhouses.  Her plants, grown from seed, are incomprable. The perennials, annuals, and vegetables, propagated in our cold frames, are grown to thrive in the high country of northern New Mexico.  Josephine and Linda are ready to help you select the plants that will do well in your garden.

 
 

Stroll through the Gardens

Nestled around the adobe walls, our flower beds are filled with vibrant annuals and perennials; hollyhocks, sunflowers, lavender, Russian sage, roses, columbines, daisies, peonies, petunias, and many other colorful plants. Aspen trees, and one of the largest blue spruce you are likely to encounter, grow amidst the grass and floral beds.

 
 

Eat at the Cafe

 

Enjoy delicious sandwiches and popular New Mexico fare: Frito pies, tamales and red chile, as well as several types of salads, and our soft serve ice cream drenched in homemade raspberry topping and fresh raspberries.
