Our Peachy History

Dave, owner of Apple Holler has been growing peaches since he first started planting them in the spring of 2011.  Dave knew he was taking a chance with planting a peach crop but he did his due diligence when it came to research and found out that there were a few hearty peach trees that grow better in the North, and would be able to withstand our winter weather.
