Located on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains outside of Hotchkiss, Colorado, our ninety-six acre organic fruit farm is dedicated to growing the best-tasting peaches, apples, pears, cherries, berries and heirloom tomatoes around. We also process our fruit into organic jams, fruit butters, apple sauce, dried fruit and cider.

The mouth-watering organic fruit we grow is the result of over 100 years of fruit growing experience in western Colorado and four generations of farming wisdom, innovation, and observation. We currently grow sixteen varieties of peaches, twenty one varieties of apples (including seven heirloom varieties), and three varieties of cherries and pears.

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, fruit butters, dried fruit, and organic applesauce, we are growers who hang our hat on outstanding flavor and old fashioned customer service.

We are dedicated to providing the best tasting products possible. From peaches that melt in your mouth to apples that highlight each varieties nuances to processed products that entice you to eat them, we strive to put a smile on your face every time you eat our fruit. We are dedicated to not just growing organic food, but improving our organic farming systems each year and minimizing outside inputs. We are also active in promoting our local communities and surrounding farms.
