Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from everyone at The Hatch Chile Store! 2012 was a wonderful, blessed year for the Berridge family and we hope it was for you as well.

We’d like to announce that we have made pre-orders for our chile (for both fresh and frozen (roasted)) available on our website. You’ll find us online at http://www.hatch-green-chile.com and can place an order by clicking on one of the product categories found on the left hand side of the page.

Although prices may rise later in the year, we’re maintaining last year’s prices until further notice. We’re also offering the same pre-order discount as last year on our fresh chile. All orders placed by July 31st will automatically receive a 15% discount. The pre-order discount is automatically applied to all orders for fresh, so there is no need to ask for a coupon code.

If you have any questions for us, please feel free to reply to this email or give us a call at (575)-635-4680. Because this is the off-season, we don’t have someone in the office to answer calls very often. If you miss us, please leave a message and we’ll return your call as quickly as possible.

 

Thanks,

Preston Mitchell

Hatch Chile Update Jun 30th 2012

Hello All,

This is a friendly reminder that chile season will soon be upon us. Our farm was blessed to miss most of the hail which hit the valley this spring so we are one of the few farms with plenty of chile this year. We expect to start shipping the second week of August, so if you have already placed a pre-order and this week doesn’t work for you please let us know.

If you haven’t placed a pre-order yet, we encourage you to do so soon as our 15% pre-order discount expires at the end of July. Pre-orders are guaranteed priority over customers who order later in the case of inclement weather or other delays plus you save quite a bit.

To place an order now, click here or use your web browser to navigate to http://hatch-green-chile.com.

We would also like to thank you, our wonderful customers, for letting us provide you with the worlds BEST chile year after year! We hope you have a great summer and that you enjoy your chile fix this August.

Green Chile Update July 2011

The summer has flown by and the chile will soon be ready this year. We’re planning to start shipping out all our pre-orders on the 9th of August this year but depending on the weather we may not start shipping until the following week. This year we’re moving to an all Tuesday shipping schedule, in order to help keep customers who can’t roast their chile till the weekend from losing any of their chile. The pre-order discount will continue through the 1st of August as previously announced, after which our prices will rise to regular-season rates. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email at admin@berridgefarms.com. We hope you have a wonderful summer, and that you enjoy our wonderful green chile as much as we do!

4th of July

We hope you had a great 4th of July weekend! It’s been a couple of months since our last update, so we thought it was about time to let you know how the chile is doing. Right now we have some of the heartiest green chile in the north valley! All our fields have knee high plants with small, developing chile pods poking through the foliage.

Here are some quick updates:

  • If you haven’t placed an order, we encourage you to do so before August 1st. We will be increasing our prices to normal rates at that time, so you can save a few dollars by ordering in advance. You can order here on the site at any time.
  • If you have already ordered, it looks like we’ll be shipping the week of the August 16th. We might be able to get a few orders out on the 9th so if you were one of the die-hards who pre-ordered in 2009, you can expect to be the first to receive your chile this year!
  • For our Santa Fe customers, we should be headed up to Santa Fe the weekend of August 14th but will only bring a limited number of sacks. If you need your chile fix ASAP, be sure to come before we’ve sold out (Friday afternoon should be safe).

  • If it was your first time ordering from us, you likely didn’t receive a pre-order discount so be sure to order early this year! Pre-order discounts run from now till the 1st of August.
  • We plan to start shipping next year on the 9th or 16th of August and will be moving to a Tuesday shipping schedule. Orders for 10 and 25 lbs can be shipped via Overnight, 2Day, or 3Day FedEx Express.
  • All 5 lb orders will be continue to be shipped via USPS Priority Mail.
  • We also now offer ground delivery to places within FedEx’s 3Day guaranteed delivery area on our larger boxes. This is a great way to save if you live within the area.
  • Pre-Order prices will start at $30 for 10lb boxes and $50 for 25lb boxes. 5 lb boxes will be priced at $27.95 and will continue to have free shipping.

Green Chile Shipping Update

I have a bit of bad news folks. Robert Berridge Sr. and I talked this morning and after looking at our chile fields, online we don’t think it will be in the best interest of our customers to start shipping the week of Monday the 16th. At this point, it looks like the chile just won’t be ready for shipment by Monday. We are now looking at shipping the week of August 23rd.

I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause many of our customers, and I would like to personally assure you that we do this only to ensure that you receive the best product possible. If you absolutely must have your green chile the week of the 16th, please email us at admin@berridgefarms.com and we’ll do our best to work something out with you for delivery the week of the 16th.

On a lighter note, it looks like it will be some of the best green chile we’ve ever had. Pods are long, thick, and look like they will be very meaty this year!

If you have an order in for a 10 or 25 pound box and have provided a PO Box as your shipping address, we will ship your order via the post office. If you would like your order to be shipped FedEx, please email us with your order number and a physical address for delivery.

If you haven’t got your order in already, we suggest that you do as soon as possible, you can order through our online catalog.

Thanks,

Preston Mitchell
