Hello! We are Becky and Lance Davis, “Nana and Papa,” and we just love to talk peaches with our customers. Having farmed with our kids and grandkids for the last twenty seasons or so, we can answer any question you have about Palisade peaches. We are second to none in the art of successfully shipping fresh Palisade peaches across the United States in perfect condition. Working at Nana’s Fruit & Jam Shack Downtown, we get to meet people from all over the US and the world. The chance to hear how far they’ve come for our peaches, and to share about farming with them brings us great joy.
We love people. At the end of the day, everything we do is about bringing happiness into our customer’s lives. There is something so special about doing the hard work of growing peaches and knowing they will be enjoyed at gatherings of friends and family all summer. There is something special about carefully curating the best selection of delicious, made in Colorado products to gift for special occasions throughout the year, and any “just because” moment in between. Our approach to everything we do is all about family and community, ours and yours.
The Davis Family Farms story started in 2000, when we bought a truckload of Palisade peaches and drove them back to our hometowns Steamboat and Craig, to sell. The peaches were such a big hit, and we had so much fun. This inspired us to start growing our own peaches. We continue to sell at our famous roadside stand in Steamboat, and the Steamboat Farmer’s Market. Papa makes the trip every week during the summer. The peaches make him quite the summer time celebrity there.
We opened the original Nana’s Fruit & Jam Shack at our Palisade farm in 2011. After 9 years at that location, we opened the current Downtown location. We love being in the heart of downtown Palisade. We are grateful to serve our customers here, all year long.
We have been members of the Palisade Chamber of Commerce since 2000, and Nana proudly serves as an Executive Board Member. The Chamber recognized us as Citizens of the Year in 2003. Over the years, we’ve been very active in planning and putting on the best celebration of peaches and community there is — The Palisade Peach Festival.
That’s us in a peach pit. Come visit and tell us about yourself soon. We’re excited to be a part of your next special occasion.
