About Our Farm Family

Snake Ranch Farm Stores™, along with Snake Ranch LLC, are family run businesses, owned and operated by Chris, Paula, and Steven Sichler. Snake Ranch, LLC is a farming operation located in the Middle Rio Grande Valley about one mile north of San Antonio, New Mexico.

The Sichler Family has been farming in the Middle Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico since the first Sichlers emigrated here from Germany in 1868, and purchased farm land in 1872. Like all families, the Sichlers have many branches and today there are several Sichlers farming under the family name. In 2008, in order to distinguish themselves from the others, Chris and Paula began selling their products under the name Snake Ranch.

Our 650 acre farm is operated by fifth and sixth generation farmers Chris Sichler and son Steven. On the farm we raise such things as Alfalfa, Field Corn, Oats, Winter Wheat, Watermelons, Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Pumpkins, Summer Squash, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Winter Squash, Bell Peppers, Jalapenos, Yellow Hot Peppers, Sweet Corn, and of course, Chile. To learn more about the farm visit our Snake Ranch LLC page.

Snake Ranch Farm Stores™ consists of two seasonal produce markets which open annually from August through October. Paula Sichler operates the San Antonio Market which is located at 88 Highway 380 in San Antonio, New Mexico. The Los Lunas Market, Ernie Sichler Farms (originally owned by Chris’ father Ernie) located at 232 Main St. Los Lunas, New Mexico, is managed by the Sichler’s son and business partner Steven Sichler. For more detailed information on our markets visit our Snake Ranch Farm Stores™ page.

Good move. Keep your integrity intact!

Thanks for keeping us updated

Little sad. Love seeing the fields show up on my feed sorta random in the summer to early fall. Wish y’all the best and hope to be back in 2021. #NewMexicoTrue

Isn't a Facebook page simpler to keep updated than a website and/or having to stop and answer the phone all the time? I would think a business would want to make their information easier to find rather than make more work for themselves and their potential customers.

Snake Ranch Farm Stores™

Top quality Farm Fresh Produce grown on our farm in San Antonio, NM, is only available at Snake Ranch Farm Stores™.

Like all families, the Sichlers have many branches, and today there are several Sichlers selling produce under the family name. The Sichler name recognition and family growth have caused much confusion to our customers, so we have re-branded our markets to Snake Ranch Farm Stores™ in order to distinguish ourselves and the quality and consistency of our products. Remember, if it is not Snake Ranch chile, it is not our chile. Likewise, Snake Ranch chile is not sold in local supermarkets near either location. Snake Ranch Farm Stores™ has two locations, with top quality Farm Fresh Produce grown on our farm in San Antonio, NM, and sold with friendly service.
