Gunnison River Farms is situated along two arcing bends on the Gunnison River in southwest Colorado. In the middle of southwest Colorado’s farming community, the farm is located between Hotchkiss and Delta. Located 35 miles from Montrose and 50 miles from Grand Junction, the property is easily accessed by major airlines that service the area. Delta airport’s private airstrip is only 12 miles away, and the farm’s private dirt airstrip is on the farm property.
The 1,000+ acre property is nestled into the riverbed and features hundreds of farming acres, ancient petroglyhps, vineyards and orchards. The property was originally homesteaded by the Ferganchick family, who worked for over a century to turn the landscape into some of the best peach-producing orchards in the valley. The farm was purchased by the Herrick family in 1998 to host guests of Black Canyon Anglers, a river rafting and fly fishing company that leads adventurers through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Combining the agricultural aspect with resort amenities in a stunning natural setting allows guests to appreciate the natural landscape.
