travel tuesday: cider tasting in hotchkiss, co

Comments 3 Standard

Delicious Farms in Hotchkiss, Colorado, is a must-visit when we do a daytrip on the Grand Mesa Loop. You can camp in the orchard, eat at the café, shop at the store, play like a kid on tree swings, listen to live music and pick your own fruit. You can also grab a stool at the Cider Bar and sample Big B’s Ciders. The food at the café is very good, so step up and order your meal. I recommend the tamales, and my husband likes the pulled pork. Then, order a flight of hard ciders and dig in.

Note: The website says they are not offering tastings due to COVID-19, but we were able to order this flight last summer. You can always choose a single cider in larger sizes. Be sure to take some home along with goodies from the store.

  1. This is one of our favorite places in the world. Did you know we camped there in Buttercup once? We took a retro trailer into the orchard. I am sure they still allow camping. Oh, we love it so much!!! I have even taken my parents there when they lived for a month up the hill from Big B’s.

    • Oh, and they make Ryan’s FAVORITE adult beverage. It’s their pommeau. We got a similar item from Ryan’s parents when they went to France. But nope. Big B’s is better.

    • I remember Buttercup! We’ll have to camp there some day. They even take reservations now. And I LOVE the pommeau! Ryan has excellent taste in cider and women. 🙂
