Armijo Farms Certified Organic

For over 20 years, we have been growing green and red chile on alkaline clay loam soil, using organic growing practices, from seed to freezer, on our seven-acre farm in Sabinal, New Mexico. Our growing practices are certified by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA) and follow the USDA Organic standards. No GMO products or pesticides are used.

Our selected red and green chile pods are harvested at their peak of maturity when the highest level of vitamin A and C is reached. Our seed is selected from the best solar dried red chile pods harvested and saved each year since 1981 when we started farming. Our chile variety is a cross between “Big Jim” and “Sandia Hot” yielding a large pod with medium to hot pungency. We call this variety “Sabinal Special”.

Our processing operation is also certified organic by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA). We fire roast our chile, then peel, dice, and freeze it in half-pound and one-pound packages. There’s no water or preservatives added. We also produce a high quality dry red chile pod, which we make into red flakes and powder.

The pungent “ready to eat” semi sweet taste of our green chile and red chile sauce is perfect for enchiladas, tamales, tacos, stir-fries, soups, stews, as a dip or added to your favorite dish.
