Peaches

We take pride in our peaches! We grow Red Haven and Hale Haven peaches, just outside our vineyard. Our tall trees lining the vineyard are a picture of ubiquitous Napa Valley.

Why Red Haven and Hale Haven breeds you ask?

These specific breeds are cold hearty, meaning they can take a freeze or two with a greater load of fruit than other varietals. They are also self-pollinating, and have much less fuzz than your average cling peach.

These trees love our full sun and cool nights!

We love peaches, and put them practically everywhere! In our pies, homemade ice cream, breakfast cereal, with salads, cobblers and the like. Peaches have so many applications; you’d be hard pressed to find a “gone bad” peach around these parts! One favorite “recipe” is to cut the peach in half, sprinkle a bit of sugar on the cut side, and place cut side down on a piping hot barbeque grill. Let it sit for a few minutes, until the flesh is soft and just under charred. The heat and flame really brings out the sweetness in the fruit and will accompany any chicken or pork dish very nicely!
For our jam, we simmer the incredibly ripe peaches with a bit of sugar and pectin until the pot is bubbling with softened fruit. After a while, the jam takes on a pinkish tint and we know it’s ready when the scent of warm peaches has filled the air.

Please stop by our website to purchase jam, or come by the farm and pick up some peaches! We have tons, and definitely want to share the wealth!
Farm hours are Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm!
