The Colorado Sun’s COVID diaries stories

Clark Family Orchards in Palisade operates a fruit stand during the summer months through which they sell a variety of homegrown produce and fruit that they've raised on their 120-acre farm. Dennis Clark said that, after this week's devastating frost, there may not be enough peaches to sell to grocery stores but that he hopes there are enough for their fruit stand. Clark Family Orchards normally produces more than one million pounds of peaches each year, he said. (Gretel Daugherty, Special to The Colorado Sun)
