Where to get good peaches?

Thumbnail image for peach sliceJulie emails:

Hey AOA, is there anywhere to go pick your own peaches around the capital region?

For whatever reason, PYO peaches appear to be a rarity around here. Maybe because the fruit is relatively fragile and growers want to make sure their trees are picked with care. Maybe just because peaches aren't as plentiful around here as, say, apples.

That said, there are some places to score good peaches. We have had some really nice peaches from Golden Harvest in Valatie this year. And in the past we've gotten different types of good peaches from Maynard Farms, which sells at the Schenectady Greenmarket.

Know of PYO place for Julie? Or even just a good local farm or farm stand for buying peaches? Please share!

Farmer Jon's has great peaches! https://www.facebook.com/Farmerjons

And boy what a treat the donut peaches are.

Fix Brothers, just south of Hudson, has finished PYO for the year. Boehm Farm, in Coxsackie https://www.facebook.com/pages/Boehm-Farm-LLC/157892240892440?sk=info should have plenty on sale, not sure about PYO though - I intend to find out this week myself!

We've been getting our peaches from the Farm at Kristy's Barn at the Cohoes farmers market. Excellent stuff.

My favorite place is called My Other Garden. It's a roadside stand (not pick-your-own) located at the intersection of Route 67 and Cook Road in Charlton. The farm also participates in the Ballston Spa Farmers Market.

Fix Bros Farm near Hudson has an enormous number of peach trees for PYO.

I went to Love Apple Farm in Ghent last year for PYO peaches and plan to go again this year :) They were fantastic!
