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 that fruit into organic jams, fruit butters, apple sauces, and ciders.
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.
All our products are certified organic and are only 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 fresh fruit gift packs and gift packs of our processed goods throughout the country, sell directly at farmers markets in the Denver, Boulder, Golden and Fort Collins areas, provide fruit shares to several CSA's, 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, nectars, 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 flavored 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.
