Peach Picking? SC Options near Greenville and WNC are Perfect

Posted on | 3 Comments

Are you looking for a place to go peach picking? SC peach picking spots are located near Greenville and into Western North Carolina. And, just in case you’d like to skip the picking and just get some delicious peaches, we’ve added some great places to get local prepicked peaches. That means if you’re wondering “Where can I get peaches near me?” you’ve come to the right spot.

Did you know that South Carolina actually grows more peaches than Georgia? Yep, peaching picking SC is a real thing because believe it or not South Carolina was the second-highest peach-producing state after California in 2022. Georgia was third. Even though we aren’t the Peach State, we can unofficially claim that title for fun with our acres and acres of peaches, orchards, peach farms, and peach stands.

I love peaches and summer is the perfect time to enjoy the juicy fruit.

While there are not a lot of local places you can pick your own, there are plenty of places to get locally-grown peaches. We’ve got both of those lists right here for you so you can get to eatin’ some peaches.

Where to Pick your own peaches in Greenville

U-Pick at Chattooga Belle Farm

Chattooga Belle Farm in Long Creek, SC is a beautiful orchard that has a distillery right at the farm. They have several u-pick items during the summer plus offer delicious culinary options in their barn. They also offer camping on-site and events. The orchard is very close to beautiful hiking trails as well so it makes a great summer and fall day trip!

They offer u-pick peaches starting in early July and prices are: $2.50/lb., $14 1/2 Peck, or $45 Basket. Follow them on Facebook or their website for the most up-to-date info on when they open their u-pick fields.

U-Pick at Jeter Mountain Farm

Jeter Mountain Farm is another stunningly beautiful orchard. They are located in Hendersonville, NC and have a huge indoor play area, u-pick fruit throughout the summer and fall, and u-pick flowers. Their 2023 open date is Saturday, July 15, 2023. They are not open daily so always check their Facebook page or call them before you head up there.

Make it a day trip and head to the Fairy Trail in Hendersonville or any of the nearby hiking trails like Bearwallow Mountain.

Tips for picking your own peaches with kids

  • Strollers are not suitable for orchards 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.
  • Leave pets at home. Most peach farms don’t allow them and if they do, they almost always do not allow them in the u-pick areas.

Where to Buy Local Peaches

To start, you can visit a local farmers market. In peach season, you’ll likely find some delicious prepicked peaches from local peach orchards.

Fisher’s Orchard

Fisher’s is a local orchard that grows peaches and apples so the peaches are straight from their orchard and will start showing up at the fruit stands in mid-June usually. Their peaches are absolutely delicious. We are big fans. Fisher’s Orchard has two roadside stands in Greer, including one right next to Dillard’s Ice Cream. That’s a good enough reason to stop there.

Some summers, Fisher’s will open up their orchard for u-pick peaches but it’s not every season. It varies based on peach production and the condition of the orchard and peach trees. As of June 2023, they are not offering u-pick peaches. Your best bet is to follow their Fisher’s Orchard Facebook page for updates.

Fisher’s Orchard
504 S. Buncombe Road, Greer

Hours: Monday-Saturday from 9 am – 7 pm and Sunday from Noon – 7 pm

Callaham Orchards

Callaham Orchards offers a huge variety of summer and fall fruit like peaches, apples, strawberries, blackberries, plums, and blueberries.

MacGregor Orchard

We love this family-owned orchard in Travelers Rest. Their homemade apple cider in the summer and fall is amazing! But they’ve also got peaches, which are equally as good.

Strawberry Hill USA is another family-owned farm and has been operating 1947. People love their strawberries and ice cream but they also have delicious peaches and berries over the summer. Definitely stop by if want a nice, juicy peach.

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.
