Orchard Experts. Believe it or not, you don't even have to drive to an orchard to get fresh peaches anymore! You can just buy one of our premium Peach Boxes, packed with our homegrown, juicy, sun-ripened peaches, which are widely popular for snacking and baking projects. Kauffman Orchards is a family-owned orchard in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, established back in 1915 by Amos Kauffman, who had a vision to provide his local community with quality, fresh fruit that would enhance their quality of life. We still follow that goal, and today, the orchard is managed by the 4th and 5th generations of Kauffmans.
Early-Season Peaches For Snacking. These first-of-the-summer-harvest peaches are not freestone (“freestone” means that the peach pit pulls out easily, with little or no cutting needed) and therefore are not suited for canning or freezing. Early-season peaches are smaller and not as high-quality as regular-season peaches. However, Kauffman peaches are Nutrient-Dense, with a high count of vitamins and minerals, so you can feel good about snacking on these peaches! Each peach has soft, high-density foam surrounding it within the box to ensure protection during shipping. The 8-count box contains approximately 2.5-3 pounds of fresh peaches, and the 16-count box contains approximately 5-6 lb. of fresh peaches.
Shipping Note – We hand-pack each peach box with juicy, sun-ripened peaches. However, we have no control over distance to your address, nor over handling and temperature during transit. To reduce the risk of the fruit becoming bruised or over-ripe, we use shipping methods that provide a quick 2-3 day delivery to most of the 48 continental states. We suggest that you consider using Overnight or 2-Day shipping options (chosen during checkout) to ensure that your peaches arrive in the same fresh, juicy condition as when they were picked in our orchards and packed into the box. To maintain optimum freshness, refrigerate your peaches upon their arrival.
