It's SUMMER! We've very excited to deliver five pounds of peaches grown by Spring Valley Farm + Orchard. Approximately 15 peaches!
Your peaches will be delivered in a box with a piece of foam to help ensure the peaches in the best shape possible!
Peach season usually runs from late June to mid-September. Earlier season peaches - usually these are pre-July 4th - are cling peaches meaning the peach will cling to the pit. Cling-free varieties, which are best for preserving, come a bit later in the season.
Use: peaches will likely not be ripe upon receipt + will need a few days on your counter. Store them in a brown bag or on your counter until they have reached your desired ripeness! Once the peaches are ripe, store in the fridge and use within a few days. Wash just before eating!
Spring Valley has been at farmers markets with us since day 1 of starting our business - we've known Eli Cook + his dedicated crew for almost a decade now! Located just outside of Romeny, West Virginia, they're just over 2 hours from Washington DC. The Cook family is committed to growing, picking and selling high quality, fresh fruits + vegetables. Spring Valley has grown their business at both farmers markets in the DC-area and at their farm stands in Virginia and West Virginia.
