Peach picking season is here! Where to go & what to do with them.
I somehow manage to miss peach picking season every year. I theorize it’s because prime harvest time is right after blueberry season and right before apple picking season, and well, that’s just a lot of time picking.
Don’t know where to go? Here is a list of local farms. PS: It’s always a good idea to call ahead and inquire about picking conditions as crop availability can change daily.
- Union Lake Peach Orchard, Barrington 603-664-2196
- Butternut Farm, Farmington 603-335-4705
- Applecrest Farm, Hampton Falls 603-926-3721
- Cider Hill Farm, Amesbury 978-388-5525
Every summer both Applecrest Farm and Cider Hill Farm hold annual Peach Festivals in August. Be sure to check our SKC Calendar and their sites for this year’s dates, times and event details.
In our area, the active peach picking season is generally between early August and early September.
