At Terhune Orchards, a family-run farm on 220 acres in the heart of Mercer County, we love to celebrate everything Jersey Fresh.

Join us as we enjoy the harvest bounty during our summer festival, which offers fun for the whole family. Our Just Peachy Festival will be held at the farm on Saturday and Sunday, August 2 and 3, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Enjoy live country music from noon to 4 p.m. each day. The Barn Cats will play on Saturday and Past Times will perform on Sunday. Families can take a tractor drawn wagon ride through our orchards and children can visit our barnyard animals.

Satisfy your craving for peaches at our Everything Peach food tent. Along with our farm fresh BBQ chicken, homemade salads, hot dogs, favorite cider donuts, and apple cider, you will find peach muffins, peach pie, peach ice cream, peach tea, and more. Our farm store will have delicious peachy treats, including baskets overflowing with peaches and nectarines, peach cobblers, peach salsa, nectarine salsa, and more.

Join us for a special feature, our Summer Harvest Tasting. Chefs from all over New Jersey and beyond who are known for delicious menus using high quality local ingredients will demonstrate their peach and seasonal recipes and offer samples of their foods. Enjoy this unique experience to taste what some of the best area restaurants have to offer. Everything peachy, everything local, everything delicious!

Adults can also stop in at the Terhune Orchards Vineyards and Winery tasting room for a sample of our favorite Just Peachy wine. The wonderful aroma reminds you of just picked peaches. Also enjoy 11 other wines, made from our own grapes and apple cider.

Pam Mount’s popular free canning class will be held during the festival at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 2.

Enter your peach pie or cobbler creation in the New Jersey Peach Promotion Council’s “Perfect Peach Pie” bake-off contest during the festival. The contest is open to any amateur baker. Entries will be judged at Terhune Orchards at 1 p.m. Sunday during the festival. The winner will receive a Terhune Orchards gift card. Finalists from across the state will go on to compete for two grand prizes — an overnight stay with dinner for two in Atlantic City or Cape May.
