Meet the Owners of Peachfork Winery - Palisde, CO

After making road trips in an RV, year after year, most people have seen enough rest areas, parking lots, and, yes, even RV parks. Welcome to Harvest Hosts—where campers go for one-of-a-kind stays at farms, breweries, wineries, and local attractions.

From a camper’s perspective, staying a night or two at a farm can bring country living to life. A winery stay is a chance for a true vineyard-to-bottle experience. Stay at a historical attraction, and you can slide a little learning into your vacation.

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be a Host? Or maybe you’re curious about the benefits (there are many) of hosting. To answer your questions, we went straight to the source—Hosts at The Peachfork Orchard and Vineyard in Palisade, Colorado, Phil and Sue Patton.

Share Your Passions

Sharing is just one of the huge benefits Harvest Hosts offers to guests and Hosts. Sure, it’s about sharing products—your amazing craft beer, alpaca wool, or an award- winning wine. But for many Hosts, it’s about sharing experiences.

Part of what drives the Patton’s success as Hosts is they believe in creating an experience for their guests. To these Hosts, it’s about giving people what they’re looking for—a unique camping experience.

A common thread? Hosts are passionate about what they do. It’s part of the reason people decide to become Hosts in the first place. When you’re passionate about something, you just want to share it with people.

Make Connections

As a Harvest Hosts Host, you’re part of a network that not only helps create unique and memorable experiences for travelers, but it’s a fantastic opportunity to make connections.

You’ll love Hosting if you enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds and locations. Our guests come from all 50 states and all over the world. Many travelers who book with Harvest Hosts are warm, friendly, and eager to connect with people they meet while traveling.

Make a Difference

Imagine what it’s like to be a guest and wonder why someone cares so much about organic produce, or why certain wines appeal to their palate while others don’t. When Hosts take the time to talk one-on-one with guests, it’s like planting seeds. Those seeds often inspire guests to try something different, whether it’s a different food or a different way of living.

Earn a Little Extra

One thing that makes Harvest Hosts unique is that we don’t charge our Hosts to belong to our family. Technically, we don’t charge guests a nightly fee like other RV parks and campgrounds. However, we encourage guests to participate in whatever the location offers, including purchasing a product or service.

Flexible Arrangements

Depending on where you live, you’re likely used to some businesses closing for the season. It happens every year in colder climates or areas where tourism wanes at the end of the warm weather.

As a Host, you too can open your doors on your schedule. Maybe you’re only available for guests on weekends or you’d like to plan a few days away for yourself. With an easy online calendar, you can let Harvest Hosts Members know when you’re available—no pressure.

You Get to Tell Your Story

Whatever you’re doing, creating medal-worthy wines, like our Hosts at The Peachfork, or raising heirloom livestock, your story matters. Most guests arrive hoping for a relaxing, fun break from the road. You give them that and more when you share your story.

The proof is in the testimonials. Guests fill out virtual comment cards. Hosts like the Pattons, receive a lot of accolades. For example, one visitor noted how impressed they were when their Hosts came out and greeted them as soon as they pulled in, escorting them to their site. Even more memorable was the “great time talking with Phil about a shared interest in mining.”

We would love to welcome you to the Harvest Hosts family. If you’re ready to start hosting, you can find more information and sign up here. Together, we can create the experiences guests crave when they dream of their next vacation.

If you plan on visiting Colorado, don’t forget to book a stay at The Peachfork.

I’m a free-spirited travel and lifestyle writer who loves the RV life. I spent several years living in my vintage Holiday Rambler and exploring the beautiful United States. Today, I live in a casita on the Sea of Cortez and take shorter road trips. I’m excited to trace new maps with stories of Mexico’s sun-soaked magic and the joy of roaming without borders.
