August 05, 2020

A fresh batch of premium tree-ripened Palisade peaches has arrived in Fort Collins this week, and will be available at our main location this Friday, August 7th starting at 10am.

 

The orchards have been bringing in a limited harvest due to losses from the late spring freeze that wiped out 80% of Palisade's crop this past April. We hope to see larger harvests in the coming weeks, however there is still too much uncertainty at this point to say for sure. We'll continue to post regular updates here, and on social media throughout the season.

More Palisade Peaches Arriving Next Week

August 02, 2020

Update Sunday, August 2nd: Palisade peaches are sold out for the week, with another larger batch arriving arriving Wednesday, August 5th or Thursday, August 6th! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for current updates.

We expect this first batch to sell out very quickly, with another larger batch arriving mid-next week.

Palisade Peaches to Arrive in Fort Collins Soon

July 24, 2020

We currently expect to open for the 2020 Palisade peach season around the dates of July 29th-31st.

 

Limited amounts of peaches have started trickling out of Palisade, CO over the past couple of weeks, with a few even making their way to Fort Collins... We're still awaiting the larger mid-season crop that is sufficient to supply our roadside stand with 100% Colorado-grown Palisade peaches.

 

We are waiting to open until genuine Colorado Palisade peaches arrive, as we carry exclusively Colorado-grown produce. We're checking in with orchards daily, and expect Palisade peach season to be in full-swing very soon! We'll continue to post frequent updates here and on social media as we receive them from the orchards.

Palisade Peaches Returning to Fort Collins this Summer

June 28, 2020

We've been speaking with our various growers and distribution partners. Here's what we're hearing from them so far, and it's good news...

Yes, despite the unprecedented freeze in April of 2020, there will almost certainly be Palisade peaches available in Fort Collins this year as usual. Several of our growers still expect to harvest a partial crop this summer. Fresh peaches are expected to arrive towards the end of July, and yes, they will be from Palisade, CO!

We expect to be fully-stocked the majority of the time, although due to high demand and low supply, there may be the possibility of occasional gaps in availability this summer. It's possible that prices may be somewhat higher, but only if the orchards charge us more. Our markup will remain the same as previous years. 

We do expect to offer home delivery of Palisade peaches in Fort Collins once again this year via our exclusive delivery partner NoCo Nosh. We also expect to offer online ordering for same-day local pickup during the season.


Due to the shortage, we unfortunately don't expect to be shipping peaches nationwide this year, but will resume next season. Due to the short supply this year, we're not able to accept any pre-orders before the season starts in late-July.

We'll have more info to share as the first harvest approaches in late-July!

Palisade Peaches in Fort Collins This Year? Probably So...

May 29, 2020

Will there be Palisade Peaches in Fort Collins this year? The short answer is...probably, yes.

 

It's still a little early to know for sure.... We'll have a better idea of how many, and how frequently as the harvest approaches this summer...

 

One thing we do know at his point is, Bluebird Organic Fruit Co. lost the majority of their 2020 crop to the freeze. We're looking forward to their return to Fort Collins in 2021 with delicious USDA Certified Organic Palisade peaches.

We'll post more info about when and where to find Palisade peaches in Fort Collins this summer as we receive it.
