Yes, we are a conventional farm. We have a very intense IPM (Integrated Pest Management) program. We use weather models, computer forecasts, and visual observations to only target specific diseases and pests during any particular spray.
Peach season always starts in June. Our freestone peaches start coming in after the Fourth of July. We then role straight into apple season which always starts on Labor Day. The best time to come for apples is the first of October which is the time we have the most variety. We normally sell apples through November/December.
A freestone peach will fall right off the pit when cut in half. Thus, the freestone peach is great for eating and highly favorited for cooking and canning. The fruit inside of a clingstone peach does not fall off of the pit. Thus, still making it a great peach to eat though not favored for cooking and freezing.
