Hatch Green Chile

Our Story

At the Hatch Chile Store, we have a tradition of excellence. Our extended family currently farms over 1000 acres of prime farmland in the Hatch Valley and has been in the produce business for more than 100 years. Our history here in the Hatch Valley dates back over 5 generations to Joseph Franzoy, the first farmer to grow chile here. Headquartered in Hatch, New Mexico, our history and heritage ensure that when you buy our Hatch Green Chile, you're getting the very best you can find straight from a family farm.

Preston Mitchell

Preston is the Owner and President of The Hatch Chile Store, and started selling fresh chile through his website when he was 15. With the help of his parents, extended family, and little sister they “bootstrapped” one of the first online farm-to-table businesses in the Hatch Valley.
