Peach picking is in full swing; usually, the peach season lasts until early September. And yes, with COVID-19, outdoor activities this year are different and limited, but the good news is there are many farms open for business and ready for you to pick some delicious peaches!

Things to keep in mind :

  • Some are open only on weekends
  • Most if not all require masks past the age of two
  • Bring your own bag
  • Some farms are reservation only
  • Some farms will close once they reach 50% capacity
  • Most stores seem to be open on the farms but at half capacity with social distancing enforced
  • Many extras such as hayrides and annual festivals are canceled

We strongly encourage you to visit the website or call the farm you plan to visit as many farms have to change their hours and how they run their farms according to health guidelines.
