Eagle Ranch is the home of New Mexico's first and largest producing pistachio groves. The farm consists of 85 acres of pistachio groves with approximately 12,000 trees. Daily field care, harvesting, processing, and marketing the finished product all take place on site at Eagle Ranch.
The family added ''Heart of the Desert'' wines to their product line in 2002. A vineyard of 12,000 vines was planted in 2003, adding to the diversity of the farm. The yield of their first crop was encouraging and prompted the addition of another 6000 grape vines to be planted in the spring of 2005. The vineyard currently contains 18,000 grape vines. The seven different varieties of grapes vines harvested each year are Chardonnay, Cabernet, Zinfandel, Shiraz, Riesling, Malvasia Bianca, and Gewürztraminer, making the production of a wide range of wines possible.
