Peach picking season is here! Tips on where to go & what to do with them.
I somehow manage to miss peach picking season every year. I theorize it’s because prime harvest time is right after blueberry season and right before apple picking season, and well, that’s just a lot of time picking.
Don’t know where to go? Here is a list of local farms. PS: It’s always a good idea to call ahead and inquire about picking conditions as crop availability can change daily.
- Tougas Family Farm, Northborough MA 508-393-6406
- Carlson Orchards, Harvard, MA 978-456-3916 (Started on 7/24)
- George Hill Orchards, Lancaster, MA 978.365.4331
- Lanni Orchards, Lunenburg, MA 978-582-6246
In Massachusetts, the active peach picking season is generally between 8/1-9/10.
