Chappell Peaches are grown in the Sandhills of North Carolina by Ken Chappell, a fourth generation farmer who distributes his fruit, both wholesale and retail, through a roadside stand located on Highway 211, between Eagle Springs and Candor, NC. His roadside stand is open seasonally from mid-June until November. Operating Hours are 8:00 until 5:00 daily (Hours may vary due to peach supply).
RALEIGH FARMERS MARKET- Our peaches are also available through Core Farms, operated daily by Tommy and Michele Core at Michele's Fresh Fruit.

Peaches are starting to become more scarce as some of the late varieties were hurt by the April freeze. However, we hope to have some through early September. The apple crop looks good.
