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!

Peaches are $3.50 / lb, $22 a box. Nectarines are $4 / lb, no box or other discount.

Thank you!

Janet ‘n’ Bob

08/04/2017

Another load of Palisade peaches, fully ripened on the tree, arrived last nite! Come get 'em! $3.50/lb, $22 a box. Bob

07/29/2017

We are frequently asked when we will have berries to pick. We don't know. As our earlier posts report (please read them), 2017 is a major transition year for us as Janet 'n' I move into semi-retirement. In April we had a major sale of our berry plants. On May 1 we shrunk our farm from 15 acres to 2 1/2 acres, returning 12 1/2 acres to Boulder County, our landlord. We still have many berry plants, but far fewer than before the big plant sale. We continue to sell tree fruit (peaches right now for several weeks, apples later) from Early Morning Orchard in Palisade. We also have our own orchard, our tomato and asparagus farms, and an area in which we can try new ideas. As to picking, we just don't know. For now we don't have any picking, and may not for the rest of the year. Watch our future posts for more information!

07/28/2017

We've received another load of incredible Palisade peaches! No more early peaches--These are full-season, fully tree-ripened delicious peaches! Come on over! $3.50 a lb, $22 a box.

Hoot 'n' Howl Peaches!

Hoot 'n' Howl Peaches!

07/21/2017

Hoot ‘n’ Howl® has Palisade Peaches!

We now have a great supply of peaches from Early Morning Orchard in Palisade. Wikipedia calls Palisade the peach capital of Colorado. We think Palisade peaches are the best tasting peaches in the world! Early Morning Orchard uses fully organic practices.

Come on over and get some! $3.50 per pound.

Google Early Morning Orchard to learn more!

06/15/2017

We are selling our sweet Western Slope cherries for $6 per lb. starting at 9am tomorrow, Friday, June 16. Come on over!

06/14/2017

Western Slope Bing and Rainier cherries are arriving!

They will be available beginning Friday at 9am.
Self serve in our driveway. Cash or checks.

05/31/2017

We expect to soon have Western Slope fruit from Early morning Orchard in Palisade, CO. We should also have our delicious tomatoes later in the summer. We have substantially reduced the scope of our berry operation this year. We anticipate that we may not have any berries for sale in 2017.

04/29/2017

Hi all. We had another excellent sale today, in spite of the cool temps and light snow.

TOMORROW (SATURDAY) IS THE FINAL DAY OF OUR BERRY PLANT SALE! Noon to 6pm. THE ONLY WAY TO EVER GET MORE HOOT 'N' HOWL BERRIES is to come tomorrow, dig, buy and grow the plants and berries yourself! We started this sale with thousands of plants, and we still have over a thousand left! It will be cool tomorrow (National Weather Service forecasts a high 37 here) so dress warmly, come and enjoy the farm one last time. For detailed information, please see our April 13 Facebook post.

PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

We will continue to operate our farmstand this summer, featuring as always the wonderful fruit from Early Morning Orchard in Palisade, CO. But tomorrow is the final day for Hoot 'n' Howl® Berries.

04/25/2017

Hi everyone. The Hoot ‘n’ Howl® Berry Plant Sale is in full swing! We’ve sold LOTS of plants, and we still have LOTS left for sale. The FINAL TWO DAYS are this Friday and Saturday, from noon until 6pm. PLEASE tell all your friends!

We profoundly appreciate the strong response we’ve received from SO many of our customers and other friends. Thank you.

The berry plant sale is still on as scheduled! The dry ground has easily absorbed all the rain so far. Local forecast is for rain to end by noon today. Sale is noon thru 6pm, today thru Monday, and then next Friday and Saturday. For more information including prices, see our April 13 post!

04/19/2017

We had a GREAT response to our berry plant sale on Friday and Saturday, and we still have THOUSANDS of plants still for sale! Come on over on April 21, 22, 23, 24, 28 or 29, noon to 6! For more information including prices, see our April 13 post!

04/13/2017

Hoot ‘n’ Howl® Berry Plant Sale starts tomorrow!

We are relinquishing the majority of our leased land and offering our in-the-ground berry plants for sale.
We will be open for selling berry plants from noon to 6pm (except Sat., Apr. 15 closing at 5pm) ONLY on the following days:
April 14, 15 (Apr 15 closing at 5pm; other days open noon to 6)
April 21, 22, 23, 24
April 28, 29
Prices:
Black Raspberry price per cane:
1 thru 20 $ 2.00
21 thru 100 $ 1.00
More than 100 $ 0.50
Red or Gold Raspberry price per cane:
1 thru 20 $ 1.00
21 thru 100 $ 0.50
More than 100 $ 0.25
Blackberries: Blackberries grow in clumps, sized from a few canes to many. We haven’t tried to divide clumps, and in researching the question we have found no internet guidance for dividing blackberry clumps. Therefore, we will sell the blackberries priced by the clump:
1 to 10 clumps purchased:
Small clumps (1 to 10 canes) $ 2 each clump
Medium clumps (11 to 25 canes) $ 5 each clump
Large clumps (more than 25 canes) $10 each clump
More than 10 clumps purchased:
Small clumps (1 to 10 canes) $ 1 each clump
Medium clumps (11 to 25 canes) $ 2.50 each clump
Large clumps (more than 25 canes) $ 5 each clump
Plants are only available in the ground. You MUST dig the plants you wish to buy yourself. Bring your own shovel or spading fork and a way to transport berry plants. (You can wrap them in damp newspapers and place in a trash bag). Bring good gloves. Wear pants, a long-sleeved shirt and good shoes. Many of the plants are quite thorny, and the land is uneven. This is probably not a good event for children. We will have harvest and planting instructions available at the farm.
We recommend that you prepare your planting location BEFORE you come to dig the plants. Choose a location in full sun, with excellent drainage (when in doubt plant in raised beds) and well amended soil. Berries also need adequate irrigation available. Once harvested, plants need to be kept damp, but not soaked, until planting. They should be planted as soon as possible and within no more than 7 days. Red and gold raspberries are planted 18"-24" apart; black raspberries 2ft apart; blackberries 4 ft. apart.
April is THE best time to plant berries in Colorado.
Note: The vast majority of the berry plants we own are on the 12 ½ acres we are returning to the county. Those are the plants that are for sale. We are retaining 2½ acres including our orchard, our hoophouse, our asparagus farm, our vegetable farm and a small berry area. Hoot ‘n’ Howl Farm will continue in operation on the 2½ acres. NO PLANTS ON THE 2½ ACRES WE ARE RETAINING ARE FOR SALE, INCLUDING THE BERRY PLANTS on the 2½ acres!
The areas open for digging will be marked. Berries available include blackberries, black raspberries, red and gold raspberries. From the very beginning we have selected our berry varieties based on taste and suitability to this area.
Our home and farm address is 6033 Jay Road, Boulder, CO 80301. Email questions to [email protected].
It is with deep sadness that we have come to the decision to end our berry operation. We are extraordinarily grateful for the support we have received from you, our other customers, the Boulder County farming community and all of our other friends.
Best wishes!
Janet and Bob
