Orchard Valley Farms is all about eating and drinking local and sustainable!
Orchard Valley Farms & Market and Black Bridge Winery are located in the rugged and pristine North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River near Paonia, Colorado – a place so beautiful our produce can't help but taste great!
The 80-acre farm was established in 1976 as a grower-supplier for wholesale fruit packing houses in western Colorado. In 1997 we started growing grapes for Colorado's emerging wine scene, and in 2003, we launched Black Bridge Winery, making wines from grapes raised in our own vineyards here in the West Elks.
Farm market and U-pick – 30 varieties of fruits and veggies
Not only were our customers looking for fine wines, but also for locally grown produce, so we expanded to a full-fledged vegetable farm. We are sustainable growers offering a wide variety of fruits, berries, grapes, decorative gourds and vegetables in season here in our farm market.

While cherries and peaches are available online in season, nothing beats a trip to see where your food is grown. The freshness, scenery and farm experience are worth the trip. For news and fun events at our farm - sign up for our eblast or check back.
Tasting room and gourmet foods from around the world
Visitors like sampling our Black Bridge wines and tasting our best-selling 18-year old balsamic vinegar and infused olive oils. Our well-stocked market offers a choice selection of locally made salsas, jams and jellies, syrups, mustards, chutneys, honey and much more.
