orchard trip

Kim of Red Dirt Farm and Studio

Recently Mr. Cottage and I set out on a mission to get some fresh peaches.

First Stop was Fruit Hill Orchard which is just a few miles away from home.


This spring, Fruit Hill orchard built a new barn to house their store.

 Each day I would drive by and take in the progress.  It was so enjoyable to watch the progress and know that these people were fulfilling a dream.

I was looking forward to checking out the finished result.

They also sell vegetables, herbs and baked goods as well as jams and jelly.

After we left, I realized I never took a photo of the building itself.  Geez, I must have been sniffing too many peaches!

Next stop was Carter Mountain Orchard, high atop the mountain.  Views in every direction of rolling hills, vineyards and apples and peaches.

Awesome eye candy on this trip!

We brought home a big box of the best peaches.

Here are two recipes that rock those peaches and use basil which is quite plentiful in our garden at this time.

Peach, green bean and pickled onion salad.

Basil peach salsa.

See you later, Bye!

  3. Great pics. I actually went apple picking at Carter Mountain a couple of years ago, when our daughter lived in C’ville. Had our first local peaches over the weekend and they were super sweet. This has been a great summer for growing things.
