From the first of May until Labor Day, this is one of our favorite places for prime Hill Country peaches. Some of the best Gillespie County peaches are for sale by the basket and the bushel, and the mail order division will ship them all over the country. From Labor Day until Christmas, the shop is open on weekends, selling peach jams and jellies, frozen peaches, and ice cream. Plans are now in the works to expand the product line to include other Hill Country-related products and extend the store hours year round.
