About Dixie Chile Ranch

Dixie Chile Ranch It's a small farm started by a couple of New Mexico expatriates who wanted fresh green and red Anaheim Chile along with fresh fruit and vegetables on the dinner table. We grow: Dixie Chile Ranch Anaheim Chile plus other types of Chile peppers along with blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, cherries, apples and pumpkins for the local NW Tennessee market. Our Dixie Chile Ranch U-Pick Farm is located 4½ miles north of Kenton. We can also grow custom fruits and vegetables for restaurants, stores and institutions (please call 731-225-0456 or contact us for details). Our Mission To grow the best fruits and vegetables in NW Tennessee and help promote a healthier lifestyle for our customers


This empty, tiny bird’s nest was found while we were harvesting grapes at the Ranch.
I thought at first it was a hummingbird’s nest, but theirs are smaller and much neater.
So it must’ve belonged to a house wren. Thought you’d like to see it!

Only one?

There’s only one chile pepper museum in the entire world that I can find and it’s in Maieraˋ, Italy: “Museo del Pepperoncino.”

Much as I like Italian food, we really do need a chile museum here in America. Crowd funding, anyone?

Chili and chocolate at the museum! Bueno!


“I grew up in New Mexico, and the older I get, I have less need for contemporary culture and big cities and all the stuff we are bombarded with. I am happier at my ranch in the middle of nowhere watching a bug carry leaves across the grass, listening to silence, riding my horse, and being in open space.”
