The fruit available at our booths at the various farmers markets may vary in variety, package sizes, and price from what is available at the orchard salesroom. We often don’t know ahead of time what will be packed into the trailers for the markets.

We are currently getting only a limited number of freestone peaches into the salesroom. We do not have enough freestones yet to pack for the farmers markets.

There are plenty of the beautiful Red Havens which are a semi-cling. The largest box of peaches we are selling in the salesroom is 1 peck which is 1/4 bushel. We also have 1/2 pecks and 2 qt boxes.

We sell 2 qt boxes at the farmers markets.

What’s Available Now–July 13: Freestone Peaches!

Peaches 1Freestone yellow and white peaches are now for sale in the Crow Mountain Orchard salesroom. Red Haven peaches will be available at the farmers markets.

The peach crop in many states was hit hard by the cold winter, so peaches are in short supply in many places this year. We lost some of our peaches due to the cold, but right now have a good supply for our customers. Dad has planted at least 50 different varieties of peaches–some are cold tolerant, heat tolerant, early or late ripening, or resistant to particular diseases or pests. The variety available this week may be different from what is picked next week. Come back often and try them all–just don’t expect us to name them!

Blackberries are almost gone for the season. We are selling the last of them in the salesroom right now.

Pears

Pears

We have plenty of the smaller, Harvest Delight Pears which we will have in the salesroom and farmers markets.

Early Gold apples are still available in the salesroom and markets.

Go to our website to see a list of the farmers markets we sell at including addresses, days, and hours. Container sizes, varieties, and prices may differ from the orchard salesroom.
