I had an hour or more to spend while a friend was doing business nearby, so stopped in here for a visit. As others have posted, the views are great. There's apple-picking, peach-picking, although when I was there, I was told there was no picking due to lack of fruit on the trees from previous busy days, which was no problem.
Now having lived in Georgia for several years, I consider myself to be somewhat of a connoisseur on what a great, juicy peach tastes like. I LOVE great peaches and have been known to eat several (in the car) after finding choice ones at roadside stands! The woman at the register was happy to give me a sample of the yellow peaches, but when I asked for a taste of the white ones, she said she didn't have one cut! Since she was surrounded with both white and yellow peaches, I was a bit taken aback at her response, so I asked her if she would consider getting a white peach and cutting it for me so I could taste those as well. She hesitated, and complied, looking a bit disgruntled.
I will say that though the peaches were okay, I left without buying any. They didn't seem any better than those in our grocery stores. The slices served to me were not sweet and juicy, as a "roadside peach" should be. Perhaps the sample I was given wasn't ripe. Who knows? There was a couple who also asked for a tasting of both types who left in front of me saying they weren't particularly tasty.
They serve frozen peach yogurt which tasted artificial and too sweet. I asked if they made it themselves, and she said they did not. I did enjoy the piece of peach pie from their wide-array of goodies. Of course, there are the usual jars of fruit jellies, jams, apple butters, relishes, dressings, even birdhouses, that you would find at a country roadside market. There's a big deck out back where you can eat your lunch or items you've picked or purchased, which is conveniently just off the back of the open-air salesroom. I did purchase some donuts which our family felt were dry and nothing special. I heard it mentioned they are not made on-site; however, I am unaware if that is true.
I had high expectations when I saw a roadside "Peaches" sign. I'm disappointed in their taste. At any rate, I'm sure most people would find this to be a fun experience, particularly those with children who can experience the joy of picking fruit off trees.
