Pick Your Own Farms

You can bring the whole family to the farm, all of which offer PYO peaches in the summer months. Some farms offer hay rides, hen houses, and other kid-friendly activities. Just be sure to call and verify the vitals before heading out the door. Bake a peach pie, cobbler, or try making Emily’s Arugula, Yellow Tomato, and Nectarine Salsa (she also recommends using peaches in the recipe).
