First Shipment Info 2012

We thought you’d like to know that the 2012 harvest is about to start. We plan to ship early next week for delivery on Thursday or Friday so, if you’ve already ordered, get ready to roast some chile!

If you’ve ordered a 10 or 25 lb box, you’ll receive a shipment notification via email from FedEx the day we ship your order. This email will include your tracking number(s). If you lose this email, you can also track your order by logging in to your account with us and clicking on the “My Account” link at the top of the page. You’ll see a list of previous orders on the following page. Click on the “View” button for the appropriate order and you’ll see your tracking number(s) listed in the order comments.  Tracking numbers for 5lb boxes can be found in the order comments as well.

If you can’t receive your order next week and haven’t made special arrangements with us, please reply to this email so we can work out an alternate ship date. We typically ship chile through late September so we rarely have problems finding a good week.

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.

The year is almost over and what a wonderful one it was. We hope all our customers had a merry Christmas, and that you’ll have a safe and happy new year as well. With 2011 fast approaching we decided to give everyone an update on our plans for the 2011 hatch green chile season.

  • 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.

Chile Update August 1st

Well, the season is nearly upon us folks and we will start shipping on schedule August 16th this year. We have a couple of notable developments as well. After careful consideration, we have begun the process of switching to FedEx to ship our 10lb and 25lb boxes.

With fedex, we will be able to offer residential delivery to many customers who formerly had to pick up packages at their local post office. All 5lb boxes will continue to be shipped via the Post Office, so some customers may receive packages via two different carriers. FedEx has guaranteed quicker delivery times, better package handling, and improved tracking of our shipments. We believe it is in the best interest of our customers to make this change. If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding this change, please send an email to admin@berridgefarms.com and we’ll address them as best we can.

Another item of interest is our new pricing on fresh green chile. As promised, all orders placed before the 1st of August received our discounted “pre-order” pricing. Prices have now risen to regular season levels. Red chile pricing later in the year will be at these rates as well.

As always, if you have any questions please let us know via email, or call us at 575-635-4680.

Thanks,

Preston Mitchell
