What makes these peaches special, besides the naturally dense, mineral-rich Georgia soil they grew up in, is Pearson Farm's insistence on thinning their trees—which means 500 peaches receive the nutrients that would otherwise go to 3,000.
The Peach Truck is a simple, but extraordinary love story: a newly married couple who took a chance on a new business and a life together — and it worked, beautifully.
It’s rare for peach farmers to follow old-fashioned and sustainable ways of raising them because it’s very difficult, but you can smell and taste the difference.
Everyone loves to be the hero. So I was pretty happy when I got to walk over to the ladies in the Epicurious Test Kitchen and tell them that they’d be the lucky recipients of a crate of genuine Georgia peaches, kindly brought over by the folks at The Peach Truck.
I knew right away [they] were special. I walked away not sure if I was woozy from the heat or tasting the most delicious, juiciest peach I had ever eaten.
