Due to the extreme cold temperatures in January this year and subsequent lack of fruit, we will not have any U-pick on peaches this year. We do have limited quantities of peaches in the farm market that range in prize from $1 to $2 per/lb depending on quality, varietal and quantity. We will begin apple and grape picking in early to mid September.
