Partners Drive Trailer-full of Palisade Peaches to Kansas

How far would you drive for a Palisade Peach? How about all the way from Kansas? And how many would you buy at one time? Maybe a flat or a box for the back seat of your car. A couple of business partners from Kansas drive 10 to 12 hours to get their Palisade Peaches, only the duo buys a trailer full at a time.

The Hays Daily News reports that Doug Berland and Linus Pfannenstiel go the extra mile for their peach fix. Under the headline, "Side Business Just Peachy for Hays Couples," Daily News Reporter Diane Gasper -O'Brien writes:

"Mention the phrase 'Colorado peaches,' and a lot of people's eyes light up.

"That's what two area couples were counting on when they decided to bring back from Colorado a trailerload of peaches and other fruit two summers ago.

"Now, Doug Berland from Hays and Linus Pfannenstiel from Damar make at least two trips a summer to Palisade, Colo., in the west-central part of the state near the Utah border and return with a trailer full of fresh fruit.

"Pfannenstiel and his wife, Debbie, own the Bingo Haus in Hays and got the idea to visit a Colorado orchard from one of their former longtime bingo players."
