Green Chile U-PICK
Even the ’rona can’t stop chile season! Clear some space out of your freezer and head down to Big Jim Farms in Los Ranchos to take part in the fourth annual Green Chile U-PICK. From 9am to 5pm every day through Oct. 31, families can enjoy great views and weather at this safe and socially distanced activity. Pick your own green chiles—organically grown on a nine-acre farm—and have them roasted on site. This year Big Jim has also planted other fruits and veggies for U-PICK at his farm, too. There will be an open-air farm market with pre-picked fruits and veggies for sale. Chile-lovers of all ages are invited to attend this free gathering. Chile pricing starts at $1.50 per pound.
