Why Zephyros Farm and Garden?
We are a gorgeous family farm located in the North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River, an area that is rich in agricultural tradition from orchards and ranches to Colorado’s renowned west elk appellation vineyards. Our farm is nestled onto the end of a mesa with views of the mountains and dessert unsurpassed in the valley, giving the feel of being isolated while being conveniently located between Paonia and Hotchkiss.
The North Fork Valley offers a plethora of things to do from fly fishing, wine tasting, river rafting, hiking, biking, and horse back riding. In addition there are amazing wildflowers, theaters, and gorgeous sunsets. We have hosted highly acclaimed farm dinners and bands with groups of up to 400 guests for the past ten years, so are accustomed to putting on big events. You should have confidence that we will accommodate your wedding in a beautiful and professional manner that will have your guests talking about your wedding for years. We have experience with and choices for both your food and flowers incomparable to other locations because they are all fresh and on the farm. We can make it part of a complete package or you can work with an array of local expert caterers, musicians, and event coordinators.

We have a great pond for swimming, goats and sheep to play with, chicken eggs to collect, and the rhythm of a vibrant working produce and flower farm.
