Georgia’s Freestone Peaches to be Offered in Indiana for Limited Time
Jun 02, 2014 11:43AM
For the first time beginning next month, delivery of fresh-picked peaches from Pearson Farm, in Georgia, will be available in Central Indiana. The peaches will be hand picked at the peak of ripeness and immediately loaded on trucks and delivered to Hoosiers the following day.
“It doesn’t get any fresher than this for Georgia peaches in Indiana,” says Marie Bogue of Fresh Harvest, the Indiana company founded by Paul Bogue and working directly with Pearson Farm to coordinate the effort. “We just want everyone to experience these amazing, beautiful peaches from this outstanding family of farmers.”
A combination of rich soil and humidity makes Georgia one of the best peach-growing territories in the world. The Pearson family is passionate about sustainable, eco-conscious farming techniques, and was the first farm in Georgia to receive GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) certification.
Pearson Farm is a family farm currently being run by the fifth generation of Pearsons, and consists of 2,300 acres of pecans and 1,400 acres of peaches, including the popular freestone peaches being offered for next-day delivery in Indiana during July when the peaches are most ideal for picking. Fresh-grown pecans from Pearson Farm will also be available for order.
Pre-orders assure delivery of peaches in an original design-labelled crate, along with a complimentary recipe booklet, an email confirmation and information on payment and pick-up. Deliveries will continue through the beginning of August or whenever the peach season ends. Boxes will weigh 25 pounds and contain approximately 40 to 45 peaches. Order extra boxes for canning, baking or freezing—and as a beautiful, healthy gift for family, friends and business associates.
