U-Pick Peach Farms
National Peach Month is yet another great excuse to get out and pick your own fruit. There is a great website called pickyourown.org that will provide you with information about u-pick farms all over the country and even out of the country. It also gives you preserving instructions and tips, recipes and fun facts about picking. It is definite worth a visit to this site to find a u-pick farm near you.
The only down side to picking your own fruit is that the fruit does not stay fresh that long, so you must be prepared to eat or bake what you pick. This has never been a problem for us. The fruit is so fresh and delicious tasting that you will be amazed at how much you can eat in one sitting.
The farm closest to me is Lawrence Farms, located on 306 Frozen Ridge Rd in Newburgh, NY. U-pick peaches are currently available but the hotter it gets the faster they ripen, so it is better to take a road trip sooner than later.
