How to Have a Peachy Summer

Where to find fresh Georgia peaches.

(Jaemor Farms)

From May to September, Georgia’s farming community sells peaches by the crate. Restaurants also feature this fruit on their menus.   Here’s where to get fresh peaches in and around their namesake state:

Jaemor Farms in Alto, GA, has been planting and harvesting peaches since 1912.  They also have a grocery, and fresh flowers for the picking during summer including sunflowers.  While it’s not a typical u-pick farm, they do hold special u-pick events during the year.

Dickey Farms in Musella, GA, has been in operation since 1897.  They have peach salsa and delicious peach BBQ sauce on sale.

Southern Belle Farm in McDonough grows 10 varieties of peaches and offers u-pick options seven days a week.  Like other farms, you can also grab some jams or jellies while you’re here or try peach cobbler.

If you’d like to enjoy Georgia’s most famous fruit, head to Decatur’s Revolution Donuts for their peach options (which have developed a cult-like following).

Or try peach French toast at Mama’s Boy in Athens. The Varsity in Atlanta has fried peach pie.  Recipes are also available on Pinterest.
