August is another favorite time here on the farm because it is National Peach Month. One of our favorite crops are delicious peaches. Peaches are high in vitamin A & C, so they’re a healthy, fresh snack when you’re on the go. There are two main varieties of peaches: clingstone & freestone peaches. Freestone peaches make it easier to remove the peach pit from it’s flesh. Stop in & stock up on these seasonal favorites & enjoy some of these farm-suggested recipes.
