Terhune Orchards

by Amy, August 29, 2009
I have been on a mission to find organic peaches and tomatoes that I can prep and freeze when we need a blast of summer in the winter. Peaches are one of those fruits that are extremely high in pesticides if they are not grown organically. So we headed down to Terhune Orchards to check out their produce. It's about an hours drive from us and is just south of Princeton. We were pleasantly surprised when we found that Terhune grows many of their fruits and vegetables organically. We went for peaches and tomatoes and ended up with those and apples, pears, nectarines, basil, oregano, heirloom tomatoes, peppers, corn, and watermelon. It was quite a haul! We enjoyed a fresh summer dinner of stuffed poblano peppers with a roasted tomato sauce and corn. It was very yummy!

The great thing about Terhune is that they have plenty of stuff for the kids to do too. Here are some pics having some fun on the farm.

Checking out the bunny.

Finding his outside voice and using it!

There appears to be some mischief in the air.

Even a little boy knows that John Deere is the real deal.

The thinker.

My favorite picture.

Feeding the goats with Don.
