|We're harvesting many 'Carolina Gold' (left box) and 'Glowingstar' (right box) yellow peaches now.|
|I just started harvesting 'China Pearl', our 2nd white peach variety. I'll keep harvesting it for the next 2 weeks, and we'll have white peaches for sale until late Aug. or early Sept.|
Small amounts of peaches cost $1.20 per pound + tax. We pick directly into 20-lb. boxes, which I then weigh to 20.0 lbs., so you save $1.00 if you buy a 20-lb. box of peaches for $23.15 + tax. We also usually have some 2nds peaches, mostly with small bird pecks or rain cracks or other surface damage, which sell for $0.69 per pound + tax.
Come during our open hours for summer: Mon. to Sat. 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon & 7 to 9 p.m., & Sundays 7 to 9 p.m. only. We're closed Sunday mornings for church (as we are year-round), and from June 1 to Aug. 31 we're closed from 12 noon to 7 p.m. due to high heat.
I'm now harvesting 'China Pearl' white peaches each morning from 7 to about 9 a.m., and can't see the driveway from the peach orchard. So if you plan to arrive before 9 a.m., please phone 620-597-2450 a day or two ahead, and leave a message saying when you're coming. Thanks. From about 9 a.m. to 12 noon, I work in the area around the sales building, pruning raspberries or blackberries or controlling weeds, so I can see the driveway.
Thornless blackberry season has now ended. The sidebar at left gives ripening dates for all our fruits, plus directions to our farm and payment methods.
