IT WAS A REAL PEACH OF A PARTY!!!






No ... seriously, it really was! This past Sunday, Bruce and I went to a little wingding for a good friend of ours who was having one of those Big birthdays!

This guy has been crazy about peaches since he was just a little kid. In fact he just completed a cholesterol lowering diet where he ate oatmeal with peaches on top for six months. SIX months!!!
 
So his wife figured she'd whip him up a peachy birthday bash out in the country at a Pick-Your-Own Peach Farm. It was a wonderful day, we all relaxed after she put us to work picking our own juicy party favors ... a basket of the freshest, most aromatic  peaches ever!


Belgian Peche Beer

 
Next she served us up ice cold bottles of something called Lambic Belgian Peche, which translates into a pretty darn good peach beer. We had a nice meal and finished everything off with an amazing cheesecake. Yes, of course it was peach!


After that we took a tour around the place. Only one couple had been to a peach orchard before. They grew up in the South. The rest of us were all transplants.
So assuming you've probably never been to a Peach Party, come along for a quick tour of your own . . .


The original peach stand is right off the road. Reminded me of Route 66 back in the day.




Our own basket wasn't quite so full, but looked just as delicious!


These were picked pretty clean before we arrived. Never knew peach trees were so low & bushy



Mother Nature's perfect peach ... almost looks artificial!


Rustic-looking building used for Weddings, parties, etc.


Rear deck area is where we had our Peach Party ΡΌ




The Farm also lets you pick your own blueberries and blackberries.

All I want to know is why somebody would put pepper on their Oatmeal and peaches???

That sounds like some event! About an hour down the road there is a small agricultural town that has the pick your own peaches, corn, tomatoes and so on. They sent out a notice not long ago saying the weather we had earlier cost them most of their peach crop so they were bringing in several tons of peaches from a small farm in California for their Peach Festival. Interesting.

Looks like a beautiful place! Where is it? Around here, there is a vineyard called Southwind and they make a lovely Peach wine.

What a fun and unique get-together at a beautiful spot! You won't find too many peach parties here in NH! Your pictures are awesome. Another enjoyable post.

What a fun theme that is perfect for this time of year. I have never had Peach Wine, I might have to try that. Have you every had Wheach Beer? It is Wheat + Peach. O'fallon Brewery makes it here in St. Louis. If you like bluemoon, but not the after taste, you should try it!

I love fun-themed events. Looks like it was a blast!

Looks like a lovely party. Personally I hate beer and can't wrap my head around peach in beer LOL but I bet it was a lovely time!

BijiBijoux said...

Wow! Very nice place to set and relax there. Yummy fruit but not the black peppers on the oatmeal lol

How cool is that! Great idea. I love peaches. My Aunt and Uncle had a small peach orchard. I used to love going over there and being able to pick the fruit right from the tree.

WOW! That looks like a lot of fun. It's 87 degrees here and we haven't even hit the high for today (of 92 degrees) so I must say that the peach beer looks WONDERFUL!

Sounds like a great event! I may just steal some of the ideas for a friend's upcoming birthday bash!
