The peaches have ripened early this year.
Farmers John and Frieda de Kleuver usually host an annual Peach Festival at Southview Orchard but last month a hailstorm damaged the orchard netting and it needs to be repaired so the festival is cancelled.
It hit us pretty bad, John said.
Fortunately, none of the trees were damaged and fruit is being sold at farmers markets including every Saturday morning in Casino.
And the farm gates will open at Hogarth Range tomorrow, Sunday, October 22 and people can pick their own stone fruit.
The warmer weather means the yellow nectarines are ready to be picked as well.
This Sunday only, pick your own fruit at $5 a kilo.
There will be farmgate sales for yellow peaches and white nectarines starting at $7 a kilo.
Pick fruit or buy from the farmgate tomorrow, Sunday, October 22 between 8.30am–2pm at 1165 Hogarth Range Road, Hogarth Range. Call for more information on 0498 001 257.
