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."You can read about these dedicated peach fans here.
