Let our fruit help your organization
reach its goals!
We’d love to connect with you to share our experience in fruit fundraising. We offer a full-service fundraising process which walks you through best practices and even includes free sales materials. If you are looking to sell fruit as an individual/wholesaler, we’d be more than happy to discuss that too!
We are now taking orders for 2021.
Let’s connect to see if a fruit fundraiser makes sense for your church/youth group, sports club, school, service organization, nonprofit or other organization!
How much money will our organization make from a fruit fundraiser?
Your organization can determine the retail price that suits the needs of your organization and community. Our team can help you determine what pricing strategy makes sense for your organization’s goals! Each season, mother nature influences the price of fruit. Plus, your location in relation to our farm in Palisade, Colorado will also impact the cost. We’d love to connect with you to let you know where fruit prices are and help you estimate what type of per box profits you could expect from running a Fuller Orchard’s Fruit Fundraising! Please reach out to our team to obtain more details!

Why Fuller Orchards?
We’ve been in business since 1952. With the grace of mother nature, we work in the orchard year-round because our customers have come to know and expect what quality Colorado fruit tastes like.
All of our fundraisers receive our #1 peaches
What are #1 peaches you ask? #1 peaches are beautifully shaped, full of color, not soft or overripe without bruising, limb rubs, split pits or other issues. To maintain consistent quality, we pick the same row of trees multiple times during the harvest window to guarantee only the peaches truly ready for picking come off the tree. Often times, fruit fundraisers provide a #2 peach to their fundraising organizations. While these peaches are just as tasty, they are often misshaped peaches with limb rubs, split pits and other less visually appealing marks. While we are at the mercy of mother nature, we strive to always provide premium fruit to our fundraisers.
Hand Picked Hand Packed
Our premium #1 peaches are hand-picked and hand packed which means our peaches are picked at the peak of ripeness and delicately handled for the ultimate fresh, juicy and nutrient dense experience for our customers. We pick each row of trees 5 to 7 times during harvest to guarantee our fruit is never picked too ripe or too green. 60% of fruit quality is maintained in the packing process. And while hand-picking and hand packing our fruit is a very labor-intensive process, it allows us to ensure the highest quality possible. Plus, our peaches never have to endure being wash under a high pressure mechanized sprayer.
Food Safety Standards
We have passed the USDA’s audit for food safety standards, specifically the USDA’s Harmonized Good Agricultural Practices Plus+ Field Operations and Harvesting Audit/Harmonized Good Agricultural Practices Plus+ Post-Harvest Audit. We are regularly audited and work daily to maintain these standards.
