Ela Family Farms is the first certified organic, fourth-generation orchard in the Rocky Mountain West.
IT’S WINTER. TIME TO CONTEMPLATE A MOMENT, & NOTICE WHERE WE ARE.
Can we close our eyes for a moment, and rest? The presence in our lives and with our farm of so many caring folks has made the unsettlement of this year all mean something. So, together with you and the orchards around us, we hope to take a deep breath. As a community, we wish for renewed reserves, for resilient deep roots, and for the continuing connections you’ve offered through your farmers market visits, your CSA support, and through the stories of appreciation you’ve gifted us. We appreciate all the people and interconnections it takes to keep local farms and food alive. Thank you.
Please bear with us if we are a little slow, and feel free to reach out to us with questions using

We are a family farm growing over 55 varieties of organic tree fruits—cherries, peaches, pears, apples, plums, plus organic grapes and multiple varieties of organic heirloom tomatoes. Every last thing we sell or make—from fresh fruit to artisanal organic jams, jellies, fruit butters, sauces, dried fruits, and cider—we grow ourselves. Our business is built on flavor, environmental stewardship, quality, local food we can all believe in, and building relationships.

Yes our fruit is delicious! It's also certified organic and grown on a zero food-waste farm powered by 80% renewable energy. Ela Family Farms also participates in scientific research projects that support the future of organic agriculture.
I just bit into my first peach from the farmer's market and it was so good it made me come and write this review. Looking forward to more peaches, plums, pears and apples from Ela's.Tuesday Samantha Lee
The best apples I ever ate!!!Kristy Lichtenfeld
Went to the farmers market in Old Town Fort Collins today and met these wonderful farmers. ALL of their samples were delicious, it was hard to choose what to buy. We went with the peach plum jam and were NOT disappointed. The greatest part of this experience was the warmness and kindness from the employees. They were friendly, patient, and helpful. We will definitely be customers again in the future.Kaitlin Farruggia
Back in about 1990, I bought some absolutely amazing Suncrest peaches (from an Eastern Slope orchard's store) that originally came from Ela Family Farms, and I've been DYING to get my hands on some more - I live in peach country in upstate NY now, but NOBODY has Suncrest peaches! There IS no other peach that measures up to YOUR Suncrest peaches!!! Please, someone at Ela Family Farms, SAVE me from my misery!Rebecca Sewell
I purchased 24 peaches online on Sunday, they shipped on Tuesday, and they arrived in Tennessee on Thursday in perfect condition. They are the sweetest, juiciest peaches around, just like I remembered them when I lived in Colorado.Cindy Anderson Craft
Fantastic farm, farmer, and crew. A weekly farmer's market visit for our family for over a decade.Jeff Wright
We will only eat peaches from Ela's. All others taste like plaster. That is all.Susan McAllister
