Thanks to Torrie and his crew at Warner's Farm you can eat fresh, bake with , can or freeze all this lovely fruit! Thank you to a new member,  Diane, who visited the fruit farm and sent us some photos!
This is a great week to buy bulk peaches for canning or freezing! Our Bulk 10 and 20 pound boxes are a great value!

    Nicer than Redhaven. A large, round, very beautiful peach with 80% rich red colour over a subtle striped background. Flesh is medium-yellow with a wonderful flavour. Freestone and great for eating!
  • Harrow Fair Peaches - NEW! 
    These medium-to-large, round fruits are brightly coloured, juicy and flavourful. Good for fresh eating, canning, and preserves

    This is a white flesh clingstone, like a babygold. It doesn't soften, but is sweet and juicy  You'll love these! Great for dehydrating.
  • Babygold Peaches - Venture
    The Venture is best for fresh eating and canning. It is a firm and juicy large yellow clingstone peach.

A note about peaches!

We have some of the most amazing peaches coming from Warrner's Fruit Farm in Niagara.
  • Warner's practices Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which means that they only spray when there is a problem to be solved. This uses less pesticides and often solutions allowed in organic farming
  • The fruit is TREE RUN which means that we are avoiding the fungicidal baths that occur at the sorting stations. The advantage, no extra fungicidal baths, fruit ripens longer on the tree since the shipping time is only 2 hours! 
  • Caring for these peaches is a bit different, but definitely worth it.
Here are some tips:
  1. When you get home, remove the peaches from their box. Some will be ripe and ready to eat. Eat them!
  2. Peaches that are not ripe should be set out on newspaper, not touching and with the stem end up.
  3. Keep an eye on them and eat or process your peaches when they are perfect. You won't be waiting long! Peaches can go in the fridge, but please note that the texture can change, especially if they are not yet ripe.
