No visit to the Museum would be complete without a stop at the Heart of the Desert Gift Shop. While specializing in wine and pistachio products, the gift shop also offers a variety of Southwestern gifts, food products, books, souvenirs, and jewelry.
The Snack Bar provides a roomy, relaxing atmosphere for families, and features light lunch items such as hot dogs and sandwiches, as well as ice cream and other treats.
Heart of the Desert is owned and operated by the Schweers family. Their family farm, located in Alamogordo, contains New Mexico's first and largest-producing pistachio groves, as well as a vineyard of 18,000 grapes vines.
These fresh, delicious pistachios and the wonderful goodies they make with those pistachios are marketed under the Heart of the Desert brand name. The Ranch also produces seven varieties of New Mexico wine. Heart of the Desert wines and pistachios, and all of the tasty products offered by the farm can be bought in the Museum gift shop and online at www.HeartoftheDesert.com.
