July 6, 2018, Racine, Wisconsin.. Apple Holler’s peach crop is experiencing a perfect fruit growing season, according to owner Dave Flannery. Dave shares that “the mild winter, along with a cool spring and tropical late spring and early summer weather of heat and rain have contributed to making the summer of 2018 a perfect peach growing season resulting in the largest crop of peaches that Apple Holler has ever harvested.”
While peaches are a more difficult fruit to grow in Wisconsin than apples, you will find 14 hardy varieties of peaches growing in the Apple Holler orchards. The various varieties were chosen for their ability to survive the long cold winters of Wisconsin, as well as their availability to be ready for early picking. Apple Holler’s Peach picking will start mid- July and continue into mid-August. Please call Apple Holler for exact peach picking dates.
In addition to pick-your-own peaches and apples, delicious homemade apple-peach pies will be available for purchase in the Apple Holler Country Store, along with peach butter, preserves and many other peach products. Don’t forget about Apple Holler’s down-home cooking where you can also enjoy peach pancakes, for only $8.99 every day starting mid-July and continue to mid-August.
In the Country Store and Gift Shop, customers can enjoy FREE tasting including peach wine, peach butter, peach bread, preserves and spreads, Wisconsin cheeses and more every day in July and August.
