(We do NOT offer "U-Pick" Peaches, sorry!)
It only takes one bite to know that you've chosen a fresh, sweet, juicy and delicious peach picked right at the orchard at the peak of perfection. Because we've selected many varieties based on flavor and their ripening characteristics, we are picking fresh peaches from a little after mid-June, clear through September.
We're also experimenting with many new peach varieties in limited quantities this summer...so keep an eye out for these treats in our farm market each time you visit.
If you would like to know more information about fresh peaches, we've prepared a series of small charts that will assist you learning more about the varieties we grow. Please click here to view more information about the peaches grown at Milburn Orchards.
Periodically throughout the year, we also send a short email to our Milburn Orchards friends letting them know when specific fruits and vegetables are ripe and ready to eat.

The following chart, based on the last five years, gives you some idea when specific varieties are available for sale in the market. If you are coming to the orchard to purchase a specific variety, please call ahead. Our number is (410) 398-1349 or (800) 684-3000.
