Pick your own peaches at Fisher’s Orchard
With summer comes one of my favorite foods: peaches. We are fortunate to live in peach country, and fresh, local peaches abound. Since we do not have a fruit-bearing tree in our yard, my family visited Fisher’s Orchard to pick our own peaches.
Once we arrived at the roadside stand, the friendly proprietor directed us to the pick-your-own orchard, gave us baskets to use, and shared tips on picking the best peaches. We then drove to the orchard and began our quest for fresh peaches. Most of the low-hanging fruit was gone, so we had to hunt through the leaves and branches, but we found much nice fruit. After we filled our basket, we drove back to the roadside stand to bag and pay for our peaches. The stand also sells already-picked peaches, tomatoes, canned items, and honey. You can also currently pick nectarines at Fisher’s Orchard.
Tips for picking your own peaches with kids
- The orchard is not suitable for strollers, due to long grass and uneven ground. Plan for small children to walk or be carried (and remember that you will also have to carry the heavy basket of peaches).
- Wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes. The grass is long and slightly muddy, and there is a plethora of ants and other insects (it is the great outdoors, after all).
- Bring a tall person or some way to reach high branches. The best fruit was at the tops of the trees!
- Bring wipes. Peaches are juicy and wipes come in pretty handy for cleanup.

We LOVE Fichers! Even though the most ripe fruit is at the top of the tree, there are plenty of peaches at toddler height that will counter ripen making it a great family adventure.
Great tip, Shanon!
