These are the same peaches that have been featured in Southern Living, Food & Wine, Huffington Post, and Yahoo Foods. They will be featured on The Today Show coming up in July.

The Peach Truck is owned by Stephen and Jessica Rose and they have been transporting peaches since 2012 from Fort Valley, Georgia. Last year, they lost their freestone peaches due to a warm winter and a late frost. They are happy to continue their mission of bringing fresh Georgia peaches directly grown by Pearson Farm to people all over the country.

The peaches are great for eating, canning, freezing and baking and are available for purchase by the 25 lb. box.
