PEACH ORCHARDS CLOSED UNTIL 2020
U-PICK Peach Orchards CLOSED for the season.
There will be NO PEACH FESTIVAL this year!
Peaches from Schnepf Farms have been named and featured in Wine Spectator Magazine as the best in the country and for over 50 years, the Schnepfs have continued to extend their season by planting more orchards with different varieties. Peaches like Earligrande, Springcrest, Florida Prince , Florida King are all popular varieties that grow extremely well in the Desert climate.
Our Peach Season begins before any other location in the Country. Its an incredible season that lasts 6 to 7 weeks! So if you are a peach lover, then plan accordingly because all different varieties ripen at different times.
We provide bags & boxes
Peach Picking Details
- You can drive to the farm and follow signs to the orchard.
- Please be respectful while in the orchard and careful where you walk. The ground is uneven. ***Also what you pick is what you pay for, and if you think you have picked too many, please don’t leave boxes out in the orchards. The peach crop is very important to our farm and once picked, you cannot replace the fruit for an entire year. Thank you.
- We have peaches already picked available out in the orchard. Please follow signs to orchard.
- PLEASE DRIVE to the orchards. Some times the orchards are on the other side of the farm and you don’t want to carry boxes back.
- You can pay out in orchard with ccard or cash.
- Peaches are sold by the pound $2.30lb if u-pick, $3.00lb if we pick. Boxes of already picked peaches are $25 or $30 for earligrande.
- Mother Nature does play a major role, if it’s hot, peaches ripen faster. So we cannot guarantee anything to do with Mother Nature.
