Being able to bring you fruit is a joy. We look forward to
Though it will be a few years before we can fully fill in the gaps left by the more than 20 acres of trees which died from the October 2020 radical freeze, we are building back bit by bit.
In 2021 we were able to replace almost 7 acres of peach trees which had been lost and they grew with gusto. So many of you lent support both financially and emotionally – there’s no way to fully convey what a difference you all have made to us with your ongoing recognition and support. We are enduringly grateful to be part of such a connected community.
In the spring of 2022 we replanted another 6 acres of new peach trees. Thank you to everyone who has helped us on this journey! They look beautiful!
IT’S PEAR AND APPLE SEASON AT OUR FARMERS MARKETS!
We are well into farmers market season now. It is such a joy to have fruit we can bring to you again! We’ve got pears, apples, and heirloom tomatoes galore. As you probably know, we grow everything we sell. It’a all organic, and all fresh-picked. Please come visit us at the Larimer County market in Fort Collins, at the Boulder or Longmont farmers markets, at the Golden farmers market, or in Denver at the City Park, Central Park, or Old South Pearl Street farmers markets. We’d love to give you a taste of a ripe, direct-from-the-farm, apple or plum or pear (whatever is in season that week!).
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
