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. The Farm is
operated by fifth and sixth generation farmers Chris
Sichler and son Steven. On the farm we raise such things
as Alfalfa, Peaches, Plums, Melons, Watermelons,
Pumpkins, Squash, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, and of course,
Chile. To learn more about the farm visit our
Snake Ranch LLC page.
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 135 Sichler Rd. Los
Lunas, New Mexico, is managed by the Sichlerís son and
business partner Steven. For more detailed information
