“featuring the worlds largest pistachio nut!”

There are plenty of large, man-made oddities that people can find throughout the world. There's the world's largest baked potato in Blackfoot, Idaho, the world's biggest buffalo in Jamestown, N.D., a larger-than-life hockey stick and puck in Duncan, British Columbia, and a mammoth lobster in Shediac, New Brunswick. Now you can add the world's largest pistachio in Otero County to the list. Travelers along U.S. 54 between Alamogordo and Tularosa have seen it since late last year at McGinn's Pistachio Tree Ranch. Tim McGinn, owner of the pistachio ranch, said he wanted to honor the memory of his father, Tom McGinn, who originally founded the pistachio and grape-producing farm.

There is not much to do in this area. So why not stop at this spot! This is a cute rest stop. They sell shirts and nick-knacks and patty whacks covered in glitter and of course lots of NUTS! Every flavor you could imagine. Very cute spot. Family friendly. There are actually two separate farms you can drive to. All by the same owners I think just two different locations 15 min away from each other. The trees/farm outside was pretty cool too. I attached 5 pics! Enjoy!

Nice little stop. The store is full of over priced tourist stuff but the tour was great and every employee was kind and helpful . The ice cream is blue bell and you can’t beat that. There was a pressed penny machine at the back of the store. Stop and stretch your legs here.

A neat little surprise along the road. The staff was wonderful and engaging, the store was very nice with a nut bar of free samples of their pistachios. The ice cream was excellent and highly recommend.
