Life’s a Peach!

texas peach

Forget beaches, we’ve got peaches! While you might feel like complaining as temperatures rise, just fill that mouth with a local peach instead. Juicy and sweet, it will most likely help you forget the heat!

Texas is known for its delightful peaches. And although we’ve been having a rough peach season this year, the weather has also made these peaches some of the most flavorful we’ve ever had! These treats are more than just tasty though, they also contain a nice supply of vitamin A and vitamin C. In fact their special mix of vitamins, minerals and water can literally make your skin glow!

Because of the warm weather and the late freezes Texas peach season has come a little early and might end a little early, so now is the time to dig in and eat yourself alotta peaches. If you are looking to bake these babies, we have a special “peaches, seconds“ product that includes peaches that might have some bruises, but are excellent in pies, smoothies and more! This week we have a pie crust and local whipping cream on sale for the perfect peach pie! Pretty peachin’ right?
