This property offers an outstanding development opportunities with excellent water rights and incredible views.

The conveniently located property is 10 miles outside Delta and only minutes from the Gunnison River with some of the best trout fishing around. This rare find spans +/- 1,109 acres with over 200 acres sitting on the mesa, 170 of which are irrigable—boasting incredible water rights—and home to a working orchard packed with fruit trees all gearing up for the 2023 summer crop. The property currently features nearly 114 acres of fruit trees, including: 70 acres of peaches, 40 acres of cherries, 4 acres of plout (a plum/apricot hybrid) and 2 acres of apples. Well-established and active since 1950, the family-owned and -operated business provides an excellent cash flow and beautiful views, serving the community and nearby states for 70 years. The fruit farm is touted as producing the world’s best sweet cherries, thanks to the mountain climate that that is dry and warm during the day and cool at night—ideal for producing perfectly-ripened fruit. Inventory is staged to provide up-and-coming producers. This is a great opportunity to own a legacy orchard with onsite packing and production facilities. Five houses on the grounds include three workers’ cabins situated near the onsite packing plant.
