The famed peach orchards of Palisade (1891, 4,727 ft,) are planted on the sloping, well-drained land at the sheltered head of the Grand Valley. Between 1940 and 1960, Palisade produced a million bushels of peaches a year, but by the 1980s the figure had fallen to around 100,000 as orchards gave way to suburban growth.
