    Can I order and pay over the phone and have my order shipped to me? I live in Scottsboro and can’t make it to pick up any of your fantastic peaches due to my work hours.

    1. I’m sorry, but we do not ship fruit. We will open the salesroom in mid-June. We are open 7 days a week, 8-5. We expect to open our farmers market stands in early July including one in Scottsboro.

    1. Yes, we have apples. We should have apples and cider into December. Please call the salesroom during business hours to check which varieties are available. 256-437-9254
