That is too bad. Thank you for the update and I really hate the orchard didn't flourish.

We rode by the peach orchard on Clark Self Road today and it looks in bad shape. Many of the trees are dead and the area hasn't been mowed. There were some peaches on some of the trees that were alive, but what I saw was small and/or green. I wonder what happened??

I went two years ago also but have not heard anything else from them. I thought it was great. I wonder if they just haven't had a good enough crop to do pick your own. They were really good peaches!

We went 2 years ago and the yellow peaches, white peaches & nectarines were great, and extremely easy picking. You just drove your car up to the trees. You got a bag from the porch and filled it up. And...they were getting ripe quickly and she told us to eat all we wanted while picking. (A bag inside ...

Anyone know if the Peach Orchard kind of near Silk Hope ( was a pick your own, honor system a while back)  is still offering peaches to the public?

I have been told the peaches are not ready yet. I will post when they are so you can get some delicious Freestone Peaches locally!
Hopefully they will be ready by next weekend!

I've not seen a lot of activity @ CP location. Some items ultra fresh, some not. Nice to have it there, when can't get by other mkts. What I have bought there has been tasty!

I stop there a couple times a week because it is so convenient and cheap. The produce is top notch.

I think it comes from the Raleigh Farmers Market. Not the part where local people sell but the part that they sell wholesale. I don't know that for a fact but it is my guess having made purchases in the Pittsboro location in the past. If anyone knows otherwise, I would appreciate being corrected. This...

Has anyone been down to the peach orchards near Candor?  If so have their freestone peaches come in yet? Has their local produce (corn, tomatoes, etc) come in yet?
