Conner Orchards is 25 acres of Colorado grown fruit, a Bed and Breakfast, and lavender farm nestled just outside the town of Hotchkiss, between Paonia and Delta.
The Bed and Breakfast
Take a turn off the interstate and come explore beautiful Western Colorado. A night at Inn the Orchard is restful and you won't leave hungry.
Cherries, peaches, plums, apricots and apples.
We ship our fruit gift packs, sell directly at the Montrose Farmers' Market, and sell wholesale throughout Colorado. From the oh-so delicious peaches, to the crisp "I never heard of this variety and I need more" munchable apples to our tempting cherries, we take pride in our produce.
Young Peach Trees
Our Lavender fields are just starting and producing some wonderful flowers and smells. We have a multitude of varieties and are developing some wonderful products, including lavender hot chocolate mix.
10/10/14 Peach Season is well and done. The HoneyCrisp are almost done and Ed is about to start picking the last four varieties of apples.
8/17/14 Where have the last few months gone? The Lavender festival, cherries (though not many) and now peaches. We are looking to start harvesting apples at the end of the week and it is a bumper crop.
5/16/14 The last 100 lavender plants went in the ground today. We added Maillette for a higher angustifolia oil producer and filled in some holes in the Folgate and Grosso from past losses. We now have over 500 plants.
5/12/14 Snow storm last night left everything under a heavy, very wet blanket. Here's our 2 year old standing next to mature lavender plants.
4/27/14 Two days of below freezing temps have our fingers crossed about the cherry crop. Plums, Peaches and Apples are all in blossom.
4/12/14 The Cherry Trees are Blooming. It's a gorgeous sight as overnight all the trees turned white.
Montrose Farmers' Market heads outdoors May 10, 2014. We'll be here every Saturday through the summer.
