Welcome to Hotchkiss, Colorado. One Of Delta County's Small Mountain Communities. Those that call Hotchkiss home would say it's the best community Delta, County has to offer. Hotchkiss boasts a rich and varied economy that includes traditional farming and ranching and organic orchards and vineyards and coal mining. The town's elevation is only 5300 feet, so it's perfect for growing a wide variety of fruit. Apple, peach and cherry orchards dot the valley.
This small town ( there are less than 1100 people ) is bordered to the north by the Grand Mesa...the world's largest flat top mountain. There are over 300 lakes on Grand Mesa, and many hiking trails. To the south the North Fork of the Gunnison River runs through this valley. It's great for rafting and trout fishing. That's why this area is called The North Fork Valley. Just outside of town is the Hotchkiss National Fish Hatchery, but I'll save that for another blog. So you can see this is a great central location for many outdoor activities.0
Take some time to explore the locally owned shops, and then you will get a true feeling of how friendly this little town is. The town's motto is...The Friendliest Town Around.
Hope to see you there.
