Chances are you’ve heard of “pick your own” adventures at pumpkin patches and apple orchards. However, a trip to Fredericksburg opens up a new world of picking activities. If you find yourself booking a stay with Cozi Vacation Rentals from around mid-May through mid-August, pick peaches at one of the local orchards near Fredericksburg.
Where to Go Picking Peaches
Fredericksburg is located in Gillespie County, one of the state’s largest peach-producing counties. Texas’s peach season typically runs from May through August, but these dates can change depending on the weather. Different varieties are available at different times.
There are numerous roadside stands on the corridors leading to town, with most of them located along Highway 87 South and Highway 290 between Stonewall and Fredericksburg. While these stands are great for a fresh treat, there’s nothing quite like visiting an orchard and picking your own.
Jenschke Orchard began in the 1960s when the family sold fresh peaches and produce at a roadside stand. In 2018, the family-owned and operated business expanded to its current country store. This orchard grows over 30 varieties of peaches and other produce like strawberries and pumpkins. For information about their “pick your own” dates, visit their website or Facebook page.
For more than a decade, Wahl’s Peaches has been in the peach-selling business. This family-operated business grows its crops with no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Not only can you purchase delicious peaches, but there are other peach-related products like jams and pies available. Check their Facebook page for the most current information about picking dates.
Once you return to your Fredericksburg rental with your haul, there is no shortage of delicious dishes you can make. Whether you’re staying in one of our condos or cabins, you’ll have a fully-equipped kitchen at your disposal to make a savory meal or sweet treat with local peaches.
