"Pick Your Own" Peach Farms in North Carolina

Picking Your Own Peaches in the Charlotte Area and Beyond

By

If you ask North Carolinians their favorite thing about summer, it won't be long before fresh peaches come up. And what better way to make sure you've got the freshest peaches available than to pick your own?

You won't find many peach farms in NC - most of them are to the south in South Carolina and Georgia - but there are a few that allow you to pick your own. Peaches usually peak during late June through July. It's definitely best to call the farm before you had out. Peaches are affected by the weather more than any other crop, and farms can change hours and availability without notice.

I've listed just a few of them below to get you started. The list is broken down into Western North Carolina, the North Carolina coastal region, and the Charlotte area - the Piedmont or central region. For each area, I have a link to a complete database to find more. What you'll find listed on this page is nowhere near a comprehensive list, nor an I saying that these are the "best" ones. It's just a sampling of some of what we have to offer. I did try to include farms from different areas of each region.

Most of these sites do offer other fresh fruits and vegetables, and several even have other "pick your own" foods. But for each of these spots, you can pick your own peaches (according to the information I found).

Know of a great farm that's not on this list? Find one here that doesn't offer the service? Let me know at charlotte@aboutguide.com and I'll get the information updated.
