Delivery of Georgia Peaches Supports Veterans
For the first time, delivery of freshpicked peaches from Pearson Farms in Georgia is available in Indiana. The peaches are picked, immediately loaded on a truck and delivered to Hoosiers by the next day. For each box purchased or picked up from an American Legion location, $1 will be donated to the Legion for dispersal to veteran service organizations.
Pearson Farms is a fifth generation-run family farm currently consisting 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.
Pre-orders can be placed now for the first delivery of peaches, which is expected to be around July 4. The date is not specific because the Pearsons wait until the peaches are perfect before picking them. Deliveries will continue through the beginning of August, or whenever the peach season ends. Each box is 25 pounds and contains about 40 to 45 mouth-watering peaches.
