It’s a peachy time to catch the early blossoms on Hogarth Range

John and Frieda de Kleuver at the front gate of Southview Orchard, John is holding a peach blossom.

The peach blossoms are out – but not for long.

The pretty pink blossoms on the rows of peach trees at Southview Orchard at Hogarth Range are a sight to see.

For the first time, farmers John and Frieda de Kleuver are opening up their orchard for three days to give the public the opportunity to enjoy the peach blossoms.

On July 30, August 13 and August 20, people can visit the farm and enjoy a picnic under the blossoms.

It’s tricky, John said, because the blossoms have come out early. Usually, it is from August 1 onwards.

Luckily there are six varieties of peach trees in the orchard and some will blossom later.

John and Frieda have been farming for eight years. They host a Peach Festival in October and have a massive vegetable garden currently growing cabbage, leeks, cauliflower, broccoli, garlic, lettuce, potatoes and snow peas.

On August 20, people can capture the blossoms in photographs or on canvas with local artist Sue Smith available to assist.
