Frequently Asked Questions

We sell our certified organic fruit on the wholesale market exclusively.

Most of our fruit is boxed by Rogers Mesa Fruit Company in Hotchkiss, Colorado and is distributed to grocery stores such as Vitamin Cottage/Natural Grocers, City Market/King Soopers, and Whole Foods Market. If the box shows grower #7 then you have found organic Fortunate Fruit from the Fortunate Orchard! Grocery stores are encouraged to call Rogers Mesa Fruit Company at 970-872-2155 for information about purchasing Fortunate Fruit.

We also sell directly to wholesale customers such as buying clubs and/or other farmers who attend farmers markets. Please thoroughly read our FAQ's and contact us if you need more information on how you can purchase Fortunate Fruit in wholesale quantities directly from us.

If you are in Delta County, Colorado please contact Rogers Mesa Fruit in Hotchkiss as they sell Fortunate Fruit by the box at wholesale prices to drop in customers. Rogers Mesa's number is (970)872-2155, website.

The Fortunate Orchard is located in a remote location, miles from the nearest town or highway. We simply can not justify the expense of operating an on-site retail fruit stand. Therefore, we do not sell fruit at our location to drop in customers. Thank you!
