Peach Festival!

Celebrating over 50 years of growing peaches in Arizona!

The farm is the largest Peach Grower in the State, all organic and pesticide FREE. 50 years ago, Ray Schnepf planted his first peach trees, two years later the farm started picking and shipping peaches all over the Country. Soon, as people  drove out to Queen Creek for a little day trip, they noticed Peach Trees in the desert. At first we picked the delicate fruit and would sell in our little roadside stand, but five years later, we opened our orchards for UPICK. Customers came from all over to pick Arizona Peaches, which now happen to be the BEST peaches in the Country (according to wine spectator magazine.)

Your Ticket Includes


  • Peachy Sampling Pavilion:  The first 6 tickets are included in your admission, if you want more, just $1 for 6 sampling tickets that can be used to sample everything from peach salsa, peach preserve, peach syrup and more.


  • Hayrides to Orchards: You can walk to the Peach Orchard to pick, or you can take a hay ride to the orchard.  The Hayride will take you to the orchard that has the most ripe peaches.

So you can only pick at those orchards where there are signs , tents and people or the hay ride drops you .
