Dry Creek Peach and Produce shares spring with visitors

Sunday, February 17th, 2013 | Posted by | no responses

“It is a quiet time in the orchard, as the trees take their much needed winter break and we prepare for the upcoming harvest, said Gayle Okumura Sullivan,  owner and CPO (chief peach operator).

New trees have been planted this season, all wonderful varieties, and the  pruning is done.  The cover crop continues to grow and the orchard looks solid. 

Blossom typically begins at the end of this month, and it is truly a stunning time at the farm, and is in full swing in March.  Grafting will begin once bloom sets in.

2013 Peach Workshop Sessions:
* Sunday, March 10 and Saturday, March 16:  Peach blossom viewing, grafting instruction, Truett Hurst wine reception, 1 p.m. start.

* Sunday, Aug. 4 and Saturday, Aug. 10:   Farm tour, peach picking instruction, and light afternoon farm-fresh meal in the orchard,  2 p.m. start.
Session Pricing: $30 per person.

*Other dates to note: Friday, Aug. 9, Relish Culinary Dinner in the orchard with John Ash; Sunday, Aug .11, Tour d’Organics.
