A Peachy Summer

Peach Brandy Preserves
In Virginia, peach season typically runs from early June through September. This year, the cold winter means there are fewer early-season varieties available. However, starting in mid-July a great crop of the best tasting varieties is expected. The dry conditions have been perfect for developing a really sweet-tasting peach. The drying-off period really brings out the sugar.

Gift Box Sampler
Graves Mountain Lodge will be celebrating peach season on July 26, 2014 from 10:00 - 4:00. Their 3rd Annual Peach Day Festival will highlight the peach harvest with Peach Ice Cream, Peach Pie, and Fresh Peaches as well as other Graves Mountain Foods.
