Celebrate Jersey Fresh and one of our state’s favorite fruits by joining us for our annual Just Peachy Festival on Saturday and Sunday, August 3 and 4, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The weekend will be filled with plenty of activities for kids, including a ride through the orchards on our tractor-drawn wagons, pony rides, face painting, games and barnyard fun. Enjoy live music each day noon to 4 p.m.

Eyes of the Wild, a traveling zoo will present two shows a day on Saturday and Sunday under the festival tent. This educational program with live animals will mesmerize toddlers through grownups.

Local culinary experts will share some of their favorite ways to use Terhune Orchards produce during cooking demonstrations on both days at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in our big red event barn. You will love the peachy inspiration and summer cooking tips from these fun and tasty programs. Enjoy a free sample of the dishes our presenters create. Demonstrations are included with admission. Pam Mount’s popular Canning & Freezing class will kick off the demonstrations on Saturday, August 3, at 11 a.m.

Pam’s Everything Peachy Food Tent will offer tasty summer fare such as barbecued chicken, hot dogs, homemade gazpacho, salads, and our famous apple cider donuts. Cool off with one of our refreshing frozen peach slushies and a selection of locally made ice creams in the Just Peachy Ice Cream Social tent.

Adults can enjoy the taste of summer in a glass with our award-winning Just Peachy wine. Sample a flight of our white, red and fruit wines.

Pick Your Own peaches will be available (as supplies last) across the street at our peach orchard. Guests must park at the peach orchard for picking. Picking is by the pound, pay for all you pick.
