Congrats to High Country Orchards, who hosted the First Family over the weekend! Not only did Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama visit our little town and pick Palisade Peaches, but the POTUS endorsed our famous fruit, as well. The Prez said: "Last time I was here I had some really good [Palisade] peaches. Somehow, though, Michelle and the girls got to go pick peaches -- and I'm hoping they bring some back for me."

A visit by any Presidential family is great PR for a small town and fantastic exposure for Palisade peaches. Any First Family is always welcome in Palisade.
