We had a busy spring and are excited to move into the summer harvest season. Desiree, our earliest peach, will be ready in early July.
But first, the big news is that we finally finished thinning all the peach trees! It was a huge job and everyone pitched in. We are happy that the peaches we left on the branches are ripening up beautifully. We'll have peaches for sale in the Utica farm market by mid-July.
We'll be at the following farmers' markets starting in early July:
- Tuesday: Newark 4-7
- Wednesday: Westerville 3-6
- Thursday: New Albany 4-7
- Friday: Newark 4-7
- Saturday: Clintonville 9-12, Granville 8:30-12, Worthington 8:00-12
What started as a few friends asking us to bring peaches home to Columbus is now a thriving CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. We will deliver fruit to Clintonville and Upper Arlington on Monday afternoons and are hoping to expand to other towns as well. Let us know if you and a group of friends are interested in starting a drop-off in your area. The good folks at Bird's Haven Farms in Granville are including our peaches and apples in their CSA this year. Contact them for more information if you live in that area.
Stay tuned for regular updates as summer gets underway,
Marshall and the Staff of Branstool Orchards
