Ela Family Farms is Colorado's first certified organic, fourth generation fruit orchard with over 100 years of fruit growing heritage. Located on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains outside of Hotchkiss, Colorado, our ninety-nine acre organic fruit farm is dedicated to growing the best-tasting peaches, apples, pears, cherries and heirloom tomatoes around. We also process our fruit into organic jams, fruit butters, apple sauce, dried fruit and cider. With over 55 varieties of fruit, we currently grow sixteen varieties of peaches, twenty five varieties of apples (including seven heirloom varieties), three varieties of cherries, two pears, eight plums and five varieties of heirloom tomatoes. We strive to be the greenest organic orchard in the West with solar panels that provide 85-90% of our electricity needs. Building healthy soils by growing nitrogen fixing legumes and using biological pest management methods are just a few of our sustainable growing practices. 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, friendly customer service. We hope you will celebrate Colorado fruit season with us!
