Experience Our Delicious Orchard
Welcome to the home of Big B's Hard Cider, Juice, and Vinegar!
We are located in the North Fork Valley of Colorado, one mile west of Paonia on CO Hwy 133. Our high elevation, Rocky Mountain water, cold nights and warm days produce some of the finest fruits in the world! Big B's produces a full line of organic and local juices and ciders from Western Slope fruit at our manufacturing plant located in the town of Hotchkiss.
When you arrive at Delicious Orchards, come into the store to say 'hi!'
We're happy to answer u-pick questions during the fruit growing season, get you registered for camping, or introduce you to our award winning hard ciders. You can enjoy a meal in the cafe and try out our famous tree swings in the courtyard (at your own risk, of course!)
Typically, we offer live music regularly throughout the summer with outdoor Saturday BBQ's. During COVID, we have changed things up a little - check back for updates.
Enjoy your stay and come back soon!
Delicious Orchards is a beautiful place to set up a tent for a few days. Our rustic camping in the orchard is a great way to experience the North Fork Valley, and our cafe and tasting room is within walking distance!
Delicious Orchards offers a full cafe featuring wholesome, local favorites. From fruitwood smoked meats to fresh salads to amazing sandwiches, our orchard cafe is a great stop for lunch, dinner, or a snack while enjoying our hard ciders.
We are a partial service restaurant - order at the counter and receive a buzzer that will alert you when your order is ready. We have extensive outdoor seating as well as bar and indoor seating.
Come by and stroll through our orchard and hand pick whatever fruit and veggies are seasonally available. Throughout the season we have a vegetable garden, organic apples, organic pears, organic apricots, organic cherries, organic peaches, organic plums, organic nectarines.
There is nothing more delicious than a piece of fruit just hand picked from a tree.
Delicious Orchards offers a wide range of locally made products and produce: art, pottery, skin care, jams, honey, wines, fruits, and veggies. You can sample the best that the North Fork Valley has to offer and take a piece home to remember us by!
Cornhole (also known regionally as bags, sack toss, or bean bag) is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing bags of corn (or bean bags) at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches or exceeds the score of 21. THANKS WIKIPEDIA!
There is probably a brilliant way to describe picnicking, but you get the idea...Slowing down, good food, picnic tables, hanging outside, enjoying yourself, relaxing in the orchard, spending time with friends and family.
HARD CIDER TASTING
Stop by our tasting room and try our award winning hard ciders. Our head cider-maker's creativity and expertise are reflected in the wide range of flavors we offer! If you haven't tried our hard cider, you are in for a treat!
During COVID we are not offering tastings, but we do offer 12oz and 16oz draft ciders to enjoy on-site!
