June 20 update: We've been busy picking CHERRIES. (We pick the tops and try to leave the bottoms for pickers since we don't allow the public to use ladders.) Prices this year will be $4/pound if you pick them and $5/pound if we pick. We will fill orders on a first come - first served basis so let us know if you are wanting cherries and how much.
Due to the limited number of cherries this year we plan to open the orchard for U-Pick only on Saturday, June 22 starting about 10:30. For more information or to pick at other times, call or text 575-491-2283 for an appointment.
Directions: To get to our U-pick orchard, turn off of Hwy 82 on to Mountain Park Rd next to the Wild Game Bistro. Pass the 8 foot tall gate at the first curve and continue on until you are almost at the Calico Peak Rd intersection. You can see our orchards on your left and there is a road to your left at the end of the tall fence that leads down to the orchards. If the sign at the corner of the fence says "Open" but the gate is closed but not locked then come on in. We keep it shut to keep the deer and elk out of the orchards.

Prices for fuel wood and wood for barbecuing vary depending on the type of wood, if it is to be split, and if it is to be delivered (locally only). We sometimes have older wood or elm at reduced prices. Call for pricing information.
