Autumn wouldn't be the same without a scenic drive to the top of the JACKSON'S ORCHARD hill. The fresh apples, peaches, & other farm orchard products are most pleasing to the pallet. There's always a "GOOD GOINS ON," up here.

Fresh peaches, apples, all sorts of other fruits and veggies. Wide selection of jams, jellies, salsa and such. Gift ideas. Stuff for home. You'll be glad you stopped to see these folks. It's a must do destination for me and the wife every peach season.
