Hi!  It’s Friday, January 22, 2010 and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Eagle Ranch Pistachio Farm

At this website you can take a free virtual tour (through photographs and text) of the Eagle Ranch Pistachio Farm in New Mexico, to see how pistachio nuts are grown, harvested and processed for comsumption.

As you’ll learn at the website, in the Chinese language the name for pistachios means “happy nut.” The Eagle Ranch mascot is a happy nut named “Peppy” – just click on the image of “Peppy” at the bottom of each page to follow the tour.  When you get to the site you’ll see photographs of the pistachio tree grove. Again, just click on Peppy to continue the tour that includes:

  • Processing Plant
  • Salting & Roasting Plant
  • Packaging Department
  • Shipping Department

The Pistachio Virtual Tour is mixed together with a quick snapshot of the Eagle Ranch vineyard and some of the stores and attractions at the location. Use the menu to learn more about pistachio nuts including their history and nutritional value.
