Mesa Winds Farmstays
Perched on the crest of Rogers Mesa near Hotchkiss, Colorado, our orchards and vineyards slope south toward the valley of the North Fork of the Gunnison River. Our 36 acre farm is a few miles outside Hotchkiss, Colorado and surrounded by mountains and plateaus. We grow USDA Certified Organic and Demeter Certified Biodynamic® peaches, apples, grapes, sweet cherries, asparagus, vegetables and honey.
