It’s all about Peaches at Terhune Orchards’ Just Peachy Festival on August 7 & 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Experience the fun of Pick Your Own Peaches at Terhune’s beautiful peach orchard, directly across the street from the festival. Come pick fresh, delicious peaches right from our trees to take home and enjoy. (Peaches are charged by the pound.) The trees are easily accessible to all.
Then head over to the “peachy” festival events featuring family friendly fun. Families visit our barnyard of animals, walk the farm trail and play on our pedal and play tractors. Kids can enjoy pony rides, rubber duck races, interactive, hands-on fun in the Discovery Barn, Little Tots Farm Store and Junior Mechanics Shop, a scavenger hunt and old-fashioned games.
On August 3 at 10:30 a.m., attend Pam’s Annual Canning and Freezing class in the Big Barn. Learn her secrets for preserving peaches and other fruits and vegetables at their peak, and get answers to your canning and freezing questions. Peaches, blueberries, tomatoes and corn are easy to freeze or can at the height of their freshness. Follow Pam’s easy directions and you’ll have a delicious reminder of your Terhune visit to enjoy during the cold winter months.
Later in the Big Barn, visitors can enjoy an “Eyes of the Wild” show both days at 12:45 and 2:00 p.m. This educational traveling zoo program features live animals that are sure to captivate children and adults alike.
Visitors of all ages can sing and dance along to live country music from Stone Hearth on Saturday (noon to 4 p.m.) and Stoney Brook Bluegrass Band on Sunday (noon to 4 p.m.). When hunger kicks in, stop in at Pam’s Farm Fresh Tent, featuring your favorite summer foods—barbecued chicken and pulled pork, hot dogs, corn on the cob, gazpacho, peach pie and Terhune’s famous apple cider donuts. Or get peachy with locally made peach ice cream and peach slush in the Peach Pit Cafe.
At the winery, enjoy a glass of Terhune’s award-winning Just Peachy wine or sample a flight of red, white and fruit wines, perfect for a summer day. Cool off with peach wine slushies.
When it is time to head home, stop at the farm store or outdoor farm market for baskets of just-picked peaches and nectarines to use in your favorite peach recipes. Pick up our fresh, organic vegetables, old-fashioned peach cobbler, peach pie or peach salsa to enjoy.
