Update from the Western Slope: Nick was able to tour the Western Slope recently and made visits at the Farm Runners store in Hotchkiss (a must visit destination!), took a tour with Lauire Conner of Conner Orchards, as well embarked on a tasting tour of the vineyard country of Palisade! If you have only heard about the phenomenon of Colorado Western Slope fruit production you should go visit because it will blow away your notions of what orchard country is all about. Colorado wine? Go smell and taste it!
And when you take this tour of the senses you will learn of the dedication and hard work it takes to pull of feats of agricultural wonder. And you will also learn that the early September frost we had this year pretty much wiped out the cherry crop for 2021. LITTLE TO ZERO NEW CHERRIES this June depending on the location of the orchard. We are grateful to have some dried cherries in the market from Rogers Mesa. They are tangy & sweet! Add them to your morning oats, muffins, salads, and more!
And big shout outs to Farm Runners, Laurie and Ed Conner, and Sauvage Spectrum Winery! Really appreciate our collaboration on the Colorado Local Food System!
