September 3, 2019:  2019 Peach season is complete.

Our sweet and juicy peaches are picked by hand at the peak of ripeness and are available at our farm market. We also deliver to many area grocery stores. All of our peaches are great for snacking, but for other uses, make sure you get freestone, or ripe semi-freestone peaches.

Juicy, fresh peaches are great eating by themselves, but for a real treat, try some of our recipes.

We hope that this information assists you when purchasing our many different varieties of peaches. The season will be at least 60 days long, so enjoy….

Cling: Peach that will not come off the pit, except with a knife. Our early peaches are clings, but sliced and served on ice cream or cereal, they are full of flavor and juice making them a treat. In fact, many people prefer the big taste of our first peach, Sentry.

Semi-freestone: Peach that will come off the pit when fully ripe. Usually early season peaches.

Freestone: Peaches that can be twisted and will fall off their pit. If you are going to can, you will definitely want to wait for the Freestones.
