    It was such a surprise to be driving through the arid new Mexico Interstate and come upon this lush oasis. We were driving from Santa Fe to New Mexico early in October and wanted to stop at Dixon's for some of their special Champagne Apples. They have four different apples, and each apple is only available for a short period of time. Red Delicious, Champagne, Red Rome and Sparkling Burgandy are the apples they grow and they also have fresh cider for sale.
    The spring fed creek of the canada has provided water for the trees for over 50 years.
    The approach to this 55 acre orchard is alongside a lovely stone wall created from the large rocks that were moved to create a place to plant the young trees.
    There are several baskets of apples available for tasting during apple season.
