GROWING NEWS:
hand-tended organic fruit tasting like real fruit should


The peaches are here, the peaches are here!
Peach season is in full swing. We’ve got plenty to bring to market right now and are picking as fast as we can.There are so many, along with the lusciously lovely “perfect” peaches.you’ll be seeing the amazing deals on boxes of “imperfects” (the cosmetically challenged). We’ll have tastes of all our fruit waiting for you to sample, so come out to any of these farmer’s markets and say hi!

Everyone has been enjoying them on the farm.  We’ve already had peaches and cream, peach smoothies, peach smashes (the adult version with gin) as well as the usual just bend over and eat them right now.  Join us and start enjoying them as well!

As always, we guarantee everything we sell so if we don’t hit the mark on something, please let us know.  Enjoy the bounty of summer and
we hope to see you at the markets this weekend!

In other news, water is still the buzzword in this part of the country. It is extremely tight and Steve’s daily routine is to look at our ditch flows and make sure we are using every bit. Through careful management, our hope is that we will be able to water the trees reasonably into early September.  Other ditch systems in the area have already finished the season and more and more brown is showing around the valley.  It is a little disconcerting…

Located on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains outside of Hotchkiss, Colorado, our ninety-nine acre organic fruit farm is dedicated to growing the best-tasting peaches, apples, pears, plums, cherries, and heirloom tomatoes around.  We are the only certified organic, fourth generation orchard in the Rocky Mountain West – the mouth-watering fruit we grow is the result of generations of farming wisdom, innovation, and experience.

All our products are certified organic. They are made from fruit we grow on our family farm. We only use fruit picked at its peak of flavor. And, best of all, we don’t add any sugar or other flavorings to our great tasting applesauces, fruit butters, and cider. For our jams, we use a reduced sugar recipe that lets you taste our fruit.

We ship our organic fruit gift packs throughout the country, sell directly at farmers markets on the Front Range, and sell wholesale to specialty food stores and gourmet restaurants throughout Colorado. From “Oh-my-god” delicious peaches (a phrase we hear often at our markets) and crisp, munchable apples to our tempting line of organic jams, sauces, dried fruit, and applesauce, we are growers who hang our hat on outstanding flavor.

We invite you to use this site to learn more about us, read about our family farming heritage in the history section, and find some great recipes. If you’re here for fruit, head right to the “find our fruit” or “fruits we grow” pages; or order one of our fantastic fruit gift packs. You can also learn of the farmers markets, CSA’s (community supported agriculture), and retailers where we sell our fresh fruit and see what people are saying about us.
