This will be another big peach week with many good varieties available.  Loring and Windblow will be winding down this week, but Contender will be plentiful along with Ruston Red, Julyprince, Big Mac, and Blushing Star.  The U-Pick orchard is open with Contender and Ruston Red.  We have melons and vegetables available daily.  Now is the best time to buy your freezing or canning peaches, however we should have peaches available into September.  Check back later for more farm news.

This week we will have many good peach varieties available including Windblow, Contender, Loring, Julyprince, Scarletprince, Big Mac, and Carolina Belle.  Windblows will become scarce by the weekend, but Contenders will be available through next week.  The next two weeks will be the best time to purchase peaches for canning or freezing.  We also have blueberries, sweet corn, watermelons, cucumbers, and cantaloupes available.  July is peach month, so stop by and visit.  Check back later for more farm news.

After a slow start to the season, volume should pick up this week.  Contenders will be available late in the week.  We should have a good volume of this peach, which is a favorite among many.  Julyprince and Scarletprince will be available early next week in good supply.  Carolina Belles are in now, with Blushingstar to follow. These are both fine white peaches.  Blueberries are selling well, considering this is the first year that we’ve had plenty to sell.  The farm received about an inch of rain last week which has helped all of the crops.  Business has been good and we appreciate your patronage.  Check back later for more farm news.
