THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON THE BLUFF
WE HAVE SOME NEWS!
We are busy getting the orchard ready for our 2018 fruit season!
Right now our cherries and peaches are small and green, but are growing every day. We believe that we could be open for picking cherries and raspberries sometime between July 10 to the 13th of July. This is a guess right now! Please watch our Facebook, Instagram, sign up for our newsletter or check back here on our website for updates.

My husband Jeff and I purchased our country orchard home on Green Bluff in 1998. I was born and raised in Denver, so I was not so sure about living so far away from “civilization”. Jeff was raised on a farm in Iowa and was looking forward to raising our family in the country, so I thought I would give this farming life a chance. The house and orchard needed a lot of repair, but we were up for the job. With the help of family, we gutted the house and lovingly put it back together. Our wonderful farm neighbors helped us determine which trees could be saved and which had to be taken out. We pulled out 400 apple, apricot, peach and cherry trees and then over the next 19 years, we planted many more cherry, apricot, peach and plum trees. We have also planted about 2000 raspberry bushes. We are a family-operated orchard. Jeff and I, along with our three children, have planted, pruned, hauled, thinned, watered, fertilized, picked and sold our fruit for the last 19 years. All this work has paid for our children’s education, from elementary all the way through college…. READ MORE ON THE BLOG
