Peach Blossom Celebration
Beautiful blooms are in business for one last weekend at Schnepf Farms’ springtime celebration. Take a walk or guided hayride through an 80 acres of flowering pink and white peach trees, and savor peachy cinnamon rolls and pies from the farm’s bakery. The UPICK organic garden is also open for taking home your own farm-fresh produce.
