Peaches are one of Brecknock Orchard’s specialty. The peach trees push their beautiful blossoms in April and yield a heathy, juicy, and flavorful feast in July through September. Each peach is carefully hand harvested and sorted to assure the quality you deserve. The dark, rich soil in the orchards is known to produce some of the best tasting peaches in Lancaster County. Brecknock Orchard has over 25 varieties of white and yellow flesh peaches, including several “Super Sweet” varieties to satisfy any palate. Pick Your Own peaches are available in August. New to the orchard is the flat peach also known as the “donut peach” in both yellow and white varieties.
In Pennsylvania, peaches are ready to pick in July, August, and September. Growers count on a cool spring, no late frosts, and a hot dry summer to produce sweet and juicy peaches.
Peaches not only taste great… they are also very healthy. There is approximately 35 calories in a medium-sized peach. They are also a good source of fiber and contain small amounts of vitamins A, C, and E.
