Unfortunately for the second time in as many seasons mother nature has decided it best that there should not be a peach crop at Butternut Farm. They will just be all the sweeter in 2017...
Our peach season runs from the last week in July through mid September with many different varieties that come and go. We have over 750 peach trees. The most peaches will be ripe between mid-August and September 6.
Picking hours July and August are 8-4 Tues-Sun. Closed on Mondays. Conditions vary so call 603-335-4705 for daily updates.
SEMI-CLING- Still early season, just before Red Havens. They are semi-cling because there are parts of the flesh that will detach easily form the pit.
FREESTONE- our first freestone variety is Red Haven. These come on the middle of August. Freestone includes all of our varieties after Red Haven, including the white flesh peaches. Freestone are great for freezing and canning. They are much easier to work with then Clingstone.
WHITE FLESH- Our white flesh peaches come on mid-season. They are sub-acid (no acid) so the sweet flavor of the peach is pronounces. These are great for desserts.
