Our little orchard farmstand sells pre-picked apples, honey from our own beehives (when available), Colorado-made jams, jellies and syrups, squash, pumpkins we grow, West-Slope peaches (late August to mid-September), and farm fresh eggs from our chickens.  It also contains three resident barn cats named Tinkerbelle, Ozzie and Socks who sleep in the hoppers of the antique cider presses. 
 

We have about a half dozen beehives around Penrose, and we sell our honey, including comb honey if the bees cooperate.  Prices range from $4 for an 8 oz. honey bear to $12.00 for a pint mason jar of "chunk" honey with a piece of honeycomb in the jar (price may vary).

Here is Lance plowing the pumpkin patch in May.  We plant about 2000 plants in eight rows between the apple trees.  We have quite a variety of white pumpkins, cinderella pumpkins, and jack-o-lanterns for you to pick beginning about the 15th of September.  They keep well if you put them in a cool (not freezing) place out of the sun, and don't place them directly on a cement floor (put cardboard underneath).
