Palisade Colorado AgriTours

Fresh! Local! Organic!

See orchards, farms and more though guided tours while walking and sometimes riding through the actual orchards, vineyards and fields.With a backdrop of dramatic cliffs and towering mesas, our Palisade Agritours offer a special experience in a pastoral setting of orchards, farms and vineyards.  Opportunities abound for visitors to learn how fruit, and farm products are grown from the ground up and prepared and sent to market.  Each business presents a one-of-a-kind experience.  Visitors can tour orchards, vineyards, and farms, see production facilities and packing sheds, visit back-road produce stands and purchase those fresh, juicy, prized Palisade peaches and other fruits. 
 
Tours options include organic orchards; community supported agriculture; packaged fruit products; fruit stands; alpaca and lavender farms, vineyards, irrigation facilities and an insectary.  Indoor tours of winery, distillery and brewery operations capture the craftsmanship of beverage-making.  You can learn about growing and using lavenders, milling alpaca wool, packing tree-ripened fruits, the importance of insects in agriculture, and the workings of the irrigation systems.  Ride an old orchard hoopy or a wagon pulled by draft horses through a peach, cherry, pear, plum, nectarine or  apple orchard.  Hang out with "peachy" alpacas.  Enjoy a guided tour from the comfort of an air-conditioned van.
 
Tours are offered by request, June through September, and designed around your agricultural interests.  Most tours will involve walking on uneven, working soil.  For comfort and safety, we discourage open-toed and high-heel shoes and encourage comfortable clothing. Sunscreen, a hat and water are recommended.  Be sure to bring your camera!

Many of the businesses we visit graciously extend tours and tasting for free or for a small charge. They appreciate your business and would love for you to purchase some of their products. No worries about your purchases: our vehicles have plenty of room and your driver will carry them for you.
