PEACHES

 

The 2014 Peach crop is very light. We are considering whether to open for

Peach U-picking this year. We hope to make a decision by July 20th.

We experienced extensive tree loss in the older peach orchards form the

Extreme winter of 2013-14.

 

We think the peaches should begin to ripen about August 10-15th.
