Applecrest Farm Orchards 7th Annual Peach Festival

I learned about Applecrest Farm through another blog, Diary of a Tomato, written by a supercharged blogger who educates and informs readers of Seacoast happenings and more. When I read that author John Irving worked there as a teen and the site provided inspiration for Cider House Rules, we decided to pay a visit for their 7th Annual Peach Festival. Peaches in New England? Yes, a great variety, matter of fact. Live and learn.

Finger snapping and foot tapping Bluegrass

Everyone was invited!

Aromas galore…

Peach ice cream was the best…

Off to the orchards

We passed cherry trees,

..and many varieties of apples,

… raspberry pickers,

… fields of crops,

… and back at the barn,

…you could cut your own flowers!

We came away with peaches, peach pies, organic blueberries, cider doughnuts, blueberry jam and lots to remember.
