We are now closed for the 2019 season. We will reopen approximately June 15, 2020. We are thankful for the support of our many customers! Best wishes, all!

We have delicious heirloom and salad tomatoes we grow right here for sale. We have our wonderful tree-ripened peaches, nectarines and pluots (a cross between a plum and an apricot) from our orchard in Palisade, CO. Last night, we received our last load of the season, so come on over now! For the latest, check this site! Right now, we are open seven days a week, from 7am until dusk.

We regret that we have discontinued our you-pick berries. They were a great ten-year run, but there is a time for all things.

08/18/2019

It’s beginning to look like we will not have berry picking this year. Recall that when we shrunk the farm in April 2017, we transplanted many of the berries from the part of the farm we returned to Parks and Open Space to the part of the farm we kept. The transplanted berries are producing poorly. Unless production sharply increases, we will not have berry picking. .

We DO have LOTS of our wonderful, tree-ripened peaches from our partner orchard in Palisade, CO. Many of our customers tell us our peaches are the finest they have ever eaten! We certainly think so!

We also have our own heirloom tomatoes and our salad tomatoes. ALL are delicious!

Come on over! 6033 Jay Road, Boulder 80301.

We got hit again by the impact of the wet, late spring: After our first peach delivery, there we no more peaches for a week and a half. But the peaches are back! Come on over! We will be open at 7am tomorrow, and every day, we hope, for several weeks! Delicious, tree-ripened Palisade, CO peaches!

07/28/2019

Price reduced to $4 a pound on Bing and Stella!

Hoot ‘n’ Howl® has Colorado Sweet Cherries—Come on Over!

We have our first produce of the season! We have an excellent supply of Bing and Stella cherries at $4 for a one-pound bag. We have a limited supply of Rainier cherries at $9 for a one-pound bag. Our cherries are tree-ripened and come from our partner, Early Morning Orchard, in Palisade, CO.

Stella cherries are similar to Bings. Stellas were developed at the Summerland Research Station in Summerland, British Columbia, on the shore of Okanagan Lake, as part of a program of the John Innes Institute in Norwich, England.

We open at 9am seven days a week! Come on over!

06/06/2019

We expect Western Slope (Early Morning Orchard) fruit very soon. We'll post more as soon as possible!

05/17/2019

Hi all. Here at Hoot 'n' Howl Farm LLC we hope to have apricots and cherries near the end of June, and peaches beginning mid-July. Early raspberries are looking slim. We anticipate nectarines and tomatoes late July. Plums early September. We hope to have fall raspberries, but won't know until late summer. Hoping for blackberries, but unsure. We will keep you posted here on our page.

09/18/2018

Hoot 'n' Howl raw Honey is here! There is NO more Local honey for Boulder than HnH H! Comes from our bees right behind our home. Please come to the door. $15 for an 8 oz jar.

09/07/2018

We’ve received more of our wonderfully delicious tree-ripened peaches from our orchard in Palisade, CO! This may be the last load of the season. Come on over now or wait until Jul 2019!

08/27/2018

We have a nice supply of our delicious tree-ripened Palisade peaches and nectarines. Also our own cucumbers and peppers. Come on over!

08/24/2018

We’ve received more of our wonderfully delicious tree-ripened peaches—and now: NECTARINES!—from our orchard in Palisade, CO! Come on over!

08/20/2018

We have sold all our peaches until our next load coming this Thursday evening. We do have our own vegetables for sale: Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and zucchini!

08/17/2018

Another load of our wonderfully delicious tree-ripened peaches from our orchard in Palisade, CO arrived last night! Come on over! We are open from 7am thru dusk seven days a week so long as we have produce to sell.

For the latest information on our farm, check this site! Just like every produce provider, we try to have what our customers want to buy as much as possible. We can’t guarantee that we will have peaches throughout our “open” hours. Thank you!

Given the changes we made on our farm on May 1, 2017 (go to our posts on this site and scroll way down), we likely will have no berries for you to pick this year. We are working intensely to enhance our farm so as to have berries and other produce available to you in the long term!

There are numerous websites with “current” information on various sources of high-quality food, local farms, you-pick locations, etc. Much of the information on those sites is NOT current. THIS site is the only one we control.

08/12/2018

Today only we will open at 11. All other days we open at 7 and close at dusk.

08/10/2018

Peaches are here! Come on over! Open tonite until dark. Tomorrow morning going forward we'll be open from 7am thru dusk.

08/08/2018

We sold out of peaches a few minutes ago. We will have more about 7pm tomorrow (Thursday) night.

08/03/2018

Our tree-ripened Palisade peaches are here! We will be open from 7am until dusk seven days a week as long as we have produce to sell! We had a major run on the peaches last week. We anticipate that we have enough to last, but it is a delicate balancing act.

Come on over!

07/31/2018

Wow! We've had a run on peaches! Thank you. Sold out. Will have more Thursday PM.

07/26/2018

Today’s shipment of our delicious tree-ripened Palisade peaches will be here by 4:40! Come on over!

There has been some confusion about when we have peaches for sale. Typically we receive peaches once or twice a week shipped from our orchard in Palisade, CO. We forecast demand when we arrange the shipment. Our forecasts are good but not perfect. Last night we sold the last peach from our most recent shipment. Because we had nothing else to sell today, we closed. We will reopen by 4:40.

Just like every produce provider, we try to have what our customers want to buy as much as possible. You see our official hours on this site, but we can’t guarantee that we will have peaches throughout those posted “open” hours. Thank you!

07/23/2018

We have our wonderfully delicious peaches from our orchard in Palisade, CO. We anticipate having them now for the next few weeks. Shipping the peaches is complicated, as is anticipating demand. Should we sell out pending a shipment, we will tell you here. Soon we will have tomatoes we grow right here for sale.
For the latest, check this site! Right now we are open seven days a week, from 7am until dusk.
Given the changes we made on our farm on May 1, 2017 (scroll way down), we likely will have no berries for you to pick this year.

07/21/2018

The peaches are here! Come on over!

07/20/2018

Delivery problems yesterday (Sometimes a rough drive over the continental divide). Peaches should arrive late this PM. Will post as soon as they are here!

07/18/2018

How to get information on what Hoot ‘n’ Howl has for sale: Come right here! Our page!

We currently anticipate opening tomorrow afternoon or evening, when we expect our next load of our delicious tree-ripened peaches from our orchard in Palisade, CO! As soon as we know when they’ll arrive, we will post here!

Our tomatoes that we grow right here are coming along nicely. We expect to be selling them soon (NOT you-pick—The vines are too fragile).

We only post when we have news. Friend us here so that you’ll get an email when we post.

We presently have nothing you can pick yourself. It is likely that we will not this year, but we won’t know for sure until we see how our fall raspberries are doing. We’ll know more on the raspberries about Sep 1.

For our whole story, scroll down! I’ve scrolled back to 2014. I don’t know how far it goes. Maybe to when we started—Eleven years ago!

07/15/2018

We just sold the last peach until this coming Thursday evening. We had a major run on peaches this weekend! We will get a larger shipment this Thursday to meet demand. Thank you to all of our customers!

07/13/2018

Are our peaches organic? No. Our orchardman uses NO non-organic sprays or other non-organic controls once fruit has set on thru harvest. However, effective protection of fruit trees year around without vigorous pest control is profoundly expensive. Off-season controls have no impact on the fruit whatsoever, but prevent us from getting organic certification.

07/13/2018

Our peaches are from our orchard in Palisade, CO. Palisade orchards are famous for growing the most tasty fruit in the world. This very small area in the Colorado River valley just upstream from Grand Junction, CO, has a unique growing environment that produces amazing fruit!

Our price is $3.00 a pound, or $22 for a whole box. That comes to approximately $2.59 a lb for a net-weight box. The boxes have some variability by weight, but not much.

Come get some!

07/13/2018

OUR FIRST PEACHES ARE HERE!

Come on over!

07/01/2018

COME ON OVER! We've got more apricots, more sweet cherries! We are open today until dusk! This week only we'll be open tomorrow thru Saturday, 8am to dusk. Normally we are open Tuesday thru Saturday, 8am to dusk; Sunday noon to dusk, and closed Monday.

When we wrote ten days ago, we talked about how easy it is to can apricots--All very true.

It is even easier to stew apricots to eat now. And it is almost as easy to make apricot cobbler! Any of these approaches bring out the same incredible enhancement of apricot flavor! Try any of them!

STEWED APRICOTS or APRICOT COBBLER

2 lbs. fresh apricots
1 1/3 C. Sugar
1/4 C. Water
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Dash of salt

Halve and put apricots in sauce pan with water, lemon juice, sugar and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook until fruit is just cooked through and not falling apart. Dot with a little butter and serve hot or cold.

If you want to use this to make cobbler you can thicken with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with 2 teaspoons sugar stirred into simmering apricots and topped with a biscuit cobbler batter.

06/22/2018

HOOT 'N' HOWL® TREE FRUIT ARE HERE! Sweet cherries! Apricots! All from our Western Slope orchard in Palisade, Colorado! You've had sweet cherries from Mexico, CA, OR and WA. They are good. But a Colorado sweet cherry? To DIE for!

Apricots: Delicious! But a secret: Have you ever had a home-canned apricot in January? As Greg Brown sings: Taste a little of the summer! Taste a little of the summer! Grandma put it all in a jar! I don't know how, but home-canning actually ENHANCES apricot flavor! I'm not whoofing you here: It's true!

Never canned? IT IS SO EASY! Do 10 minutes of internet research and you'll be an expert canner! For apricots all you need is sugar, water, canning jars and lids, a canner and a stove. Safeway and King Soopers probably sell all of it (except the stove). Pick a SIMPLE internet recipe and follow it.

So come on over! Open Tuesday thru Saturday, 8am to dusk, Sunday noon to dusk. Closed Monday.

See you soon!

Nothing to pick now. We are still rebuilding from our downsizing last year.

10/01/2017

Sadly, almost all of the apple blossoms in Boulder County were killed by a late frost last spring, including all of ours :( . Further, most of the Palisade apples were also hit by a late frost. There are very few Colorado apples anywhere this year. For our own use, we have been buying Washington state apples.

09/10/2017

Hi all! We've received a shipment of wonderful, tasty! peaches from Early Morning Orchard! These are the last peaches we will have for sale this year, so come get 'em while they last!

A few of you have advised us that the last shipment we had received before this one had some peaches that were below our very high quality standard. We discussed this w/ our orchardman: As hard as he tries, occasionally some mediocre peaches will occur and miss his screening efforts. If you got some of these unacceptable peaches, come on over, and we’ll replace them at no cost to you. Please come to our door, so we can keep a tally. Thank you.

08/24/2017

HnH Cherokee Purple tomatoes, EMO peaches and nectarines! Come on over!

08/18/2017

We have a wonderful supply of both nectarines and peaches, all tree-ripened, from Early Morning Orchard in Palisade. Both priced at $3.50 a lb, and $22 a box. Boxes average 8.5 lb net. COME ON OVER!

08/18/2017

People continue to ask when we will have berries. It is probable that we will have no picking this year. We hope to next year. Janet 'n' Bob

08/11/2017

Hoot ‘n’ Howl® has nectarines! And peaches!

Come on over! We received a limited supply of nectarines, and we have LOTS of peaches!
