Nine miles west of Paonia on Highway 133, Hotchkiss is home to hard-working locals with family roots of four and five generations. There is a rich diversity of retailers, services, professional practitioners, telecommuting professionals, and farmers. You’ll find organic and conventional orchards, vineyards, vegetables, livestock, poultry, elk, and bison. Creatives abound, as well, including visual artists, musicians, performers, writers, and craftspeople. And a community full of events to unwind and enjoy the good life.
