Why peaches? Why now? It's simple, really. The state of Georgia, especially Peach County, is the perfect growing land for Fresh Georgia Peaches. There are several factors that feed into this.
The soil is perfect. If you've heard of Georgia Red Clay, then you know. It's a mud like texture that holds water and nutrients just below the surface to feed the tree roots perfectly.
The weather is perfect. Hot, dreadful, muggy summers and cold, wet winters are the perfect combination for fruitful (no pun intended) crops. Peach County Georgia has the best growing conditions on the planet. This is the literal truth. There's no better place on earth to grow a peach.
The farmers are unparalleled. Who are the best guitar players you know? Who are the best architects you know? Most of them probably had parents in the field who taught them what they knew. From there, they were able to extrapolate the good things they had to teach and continue with their own innovations, thoughts, and ideas. So that brings us to a 5th Generation Peach Farm in Peach County, GA. Every generation has brought new ideas, new innovations, along with the time tested, classic techniques from years past. The skills that Pearson Farm has in their blood are not replaceable by someone who starts farming now. These skills are at their cellular level.
If you want the best peach this world has to offer, it's going to come from Peach County, Georgia. We're fortunate to be the vehicle that brings so many of them to our neighbors around the country.
