Where to find our fruit
Join us at one of our 200+ Peach Stop locations across the Midwest! Our trucks will offer fresh Georgia peaches and pecans from mid-June to early August and add Michigan blueberries as soon as they become available in early July.
Join us this summer at various pop-up locations across the greater Milwaukee and Madison areas. We’ll only be offering 4lb. bags of Georgia peaches, 5lb boxes of Michigan blueberries and 1lb bags of Georgia pecans at these locations.
Peach Care Tips
Our peaches keep ripening after they are picked, so follow the tips below to make sure your peachesare perfectly ripe & juicy – the way we want you to enjoy them!
Be Gentle & Wash
Be careful when carrying your peaches – they bruise very easily! Try to use any bruised or softer fruit first. Our peaches are already washed, but we always recommend a quick rinse.
Let them ripen
Lay them out for 1-3 days on your counter stem-side down without stacking them. The warmer the room temperature is, the quicker they will soften. Peaches are ready to eat when they are soft to the touch and have a strong, peachy aroma.
Do NOT put the peaches in the refrigerator before they have softened – they can turn mealy. After they have softened on your counter, you can refrigerate them safely for 1-2 weeks to extend their life.

Our Farm Stories
We partner with the best fruit growers in the country. Our fruit is picked-to-order by the best growers and delivered within days of harvest.
PEARSON FARM PEACHES
Since 1885, our partner Pearson Farm has been perfecting the art of growing the perfect peach. With over five generations of Pearson family members still running on the farm, they are the oldest family-owned peach growing farm in Georgia.
WALKER FARMS BLUEBERRIES
Our partner Walker Farms has been farming for 5 generations, tending blueberry fields from the same farmland for almost 70 years.
PEARSON FARM PECANS
The Pearson Family has been tending to the same pecan trees planted five generations ago and to this day continue to produce the most flavorful pecans we’ve ever tasted.

Why are my peaches still firm?
Firm peaches are normal and the way we intend you to get them! They will just take 1-3 days on your kitchen counter to complete the ripening and softening process. Peaches continue their ripening process after they have been picked from the tree and we make sure they are firm when you get them so they don’t bruise or get damaged while we ship them to you.
We allow our peaches to stay on the tree until the last second before it starts to soften which results in an amazing tasting peach you can’t get anywhere else!
Where are your peaches grown?
Our peaches come from Georgia’s oldest peach farm, Pearson Farm, in Fort Valley, Georgia.
What varieties of peaches do you sell? Are they freestone?
All of our peaches are freestone. Over the course of our peach season (June-August) we bring many different varieties of Georgia peaches from Pearson Farm. Each variety harvests for roughly a week, so each time you purchase you’ll most likely be trying a different variety.
What is a freestone? It all has to do with how easily the peach flesh separates from the pit (stone). A clingstone peach “clings” to the pit. These varieties, while tasty, are tougher to eat and work with. In Georgia, they harvest clingstone peaches in May.
Once we get to mid-June, freestone peaches begin harvesting and we start delivering them to the Midwest. They are called freestone because the pit (stone) freely separates from the peach flesh. They’re easy to freeze, can, or eat. We only deliver freestone peaches!
How long will my peaches last after I buy them?
After they soften on your kitchen counter, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks, but many of our customers are able to use them even longer.
We always recommend having a plan – make pies and cobbler, share some with friends and family, and preserve some to really make the best of your box!
Is your fruit guaranteed?
Absolutely! All of our products are 100% guaranteed. This is because we’re so confident that you’ll love our fruit!
Of course, growing anything can be challenging. So if we’ve missed the mark and you aren’t completely satisfied with your purchase, please let us know! Simply email us at email@example.com and we can arrange for replacement product or a refund.
Why does my box of fruit not seem full?
While it may not seem full, your fruit is packed to protect the fruit while it’s transported to you. For this reason, we normally pack our fruit in oversized boxes. However, we guarantee you are getting the amount of fruit you paid for!
If you have any concerns about how much fruit you received, or feel that you did not receive the correct amount, please let us know through our contact form or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is your fruit non-GMO or organic?
Our fruit is non-GMO and is non-organic, minimally treated to protect crops. Our farms work very hard to exceed the standards for safe application of any pesticides and only do it as a last resort. Many of our farms practice integrated pest management (IPM), which takes a proactive approach that relies on common sense and environmentally-sensitive pest management practices.
We spend a great deal of time and research in selecting the farms that we work with, making sure that we can find the right partner that not only produces great tasting fruit but who cultivates sustainable practices for their land and team members.
