Door to Door Organics, a delivery service with a rotating lineup of organic and locally grown fruits, veggies, and groceries, ships soil-sprouted treasures right to customers' doors each week. Thanks to personal and professional relationships with local farmers, Door to Door Organics is able to offer a produce menu that changes weekly depending on what's in season, ensuring crisp, fresh goodies right off the farm. Start by choosing a Bitty box of heart-healthy fruits, veggies, or both. A recent menu for a Bitty mixed box included a medley of gala apples, romaine lettuce, red beets, broccoli, bartlett pears, bananas, avocados, and kiwi—a veritable cornucopia as fresh and diverse as freshly reaped census data. Sustenance seekers will receive reminder emails highlighting the week's freshest organic selections each Friday, at which time customers may make up to five substitutions per box.

When John and Ulla first traveled through the Palisade countryside in 1994, it was filled with peach orchards. But after they attended a seminar on grape-growing the same year, the pair found themselves more inspired by that particular fruit. They returned to Palisade to purchase a 10-acre plot, camping in a trailer amid the trees as they transformed the land into their own vineyard. Years of planting and pruning vines yielded a rich harvest including Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon—and Bookcliff Vineyards.
Today, Bookcliff has expanded into 37 acres, and Ulla and John produce a dozen varietals using sustainable practices and strictly their own Colorado grapes. The grounds include a winery and tasting room, where guests peek at the Old-World-meets-New-World-meets-brewing-world lineup of oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. In addition to chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon, their award-winning selection of wines includes lesser-known varietals such as Muscat and Viognier.

The chocolatiers behind Concertos in Chocolate hand-dip all their truffles, nut-filled bark, and other confections in European-style chocolate forged from fresh whipping cream, butter, and pure flavorings. Orb-like truffles hide unique fillings flavored with lavender and champagne, and nostalgic confections, including hefty coconut stacks, keep children from sneaking off on time-travel missions to find the treats their parents reminisce about. The confectioners also mold fresh-fruit purees into fruit gigs—gems of black currant and passionfruit that sparkle with dustings of sugar.

In addition to plants, Young's inventory includes soil, fertilizers, weed-control products, and pond supplies. In season, customers can find fresh produce at Young’s bustling farmers' market.
