Conner Orchards is 25 acres of Colorado grown fruit, including cherries, peaches, apples, plums and apricots with more than 600 lavender plants. We are nestled just outside the town of Hotchkiss, between Paonia and Delta.
What is happening now on the orchard? March 31, 2017
We went the entire month of March without dropping below freezing. Everything is in bloom, but the apples. The apricots have already completed petal fall. This will be another bumper crop or a freeze will come next month. The last freeze date for our area is May 10. We watch and hope and try to get everything ready for what could be an early fruit year.
What is available now---
Lavender. We have selections of gift bags and can make one to your need. Also new this year will be the Lavender White Chocolates!
Where to find our lavender products? The Lavender Emporium in Montrose,
the Pack Shack in Hotchkiss and Lizzie's Market in Paonia. The store
is up and running though I need to make better pictures on a nice sunny
