Freshly picked peaches in a basket at the orchard

Peaches Now in Season + Summer Outlook

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the peaches are ripe, just waiting to be picked!

Pick-your-own peaches now available

Peach picking season is officially upon us and we are beyond excited. Pick-your-own peaches started a tad early this year, kicking off with a peach variety that we’re especially happy to see because the frost destroyed last year’s crop of this particular early variety.

Pick-your-own yellow peaches are expected to last through August. Donut peaches are still a few weeks away and we anticipate a lovely crop.

Can’t get enough peaches? Learn more about picking, storing, and cooking with peaches on our peach information page. For peach recipe ideas, check out our 7 Just Peachy Summer Recipes blog.

Pick-your-own blueberries in season through June

A relatively new addition to our family farm, the blueberry patch is looking blue ‘n beautiful! Pick-your-own and ready-picked blueberries are available as of early June.

Blueberry season is expected to last through the end of June and hopefully into early July.

Pick-your-own flowers and vegetables coming soon

We’ve been busy tending the flower gardens and vegetable patch! Throughout the summer, our farm market will offer a wide variety of vegetables including zucchini, green beans, bell peppers, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, corn, and tomatoes. (And, yes, we know tomatoes are technically a fruit.)

Flower fans will be delighted by fresh-picked bouquets available in the market and pick-your-own opportunities. We’ve planted zinnias, cosmos, asters, and, a crowd favorite, sunflowers!
