Gregg Farms in Georgia is a modest Upick Orchard, dedicated to growing and producing the best peaches they can, for you to pick and enjoy!
“Gregg Farms began selling peaches to public in the early 1970’s. John and Patsy Gregg started the U-Pick~We-Pick Farm with the help of their two sons Lee and Brad.
The orchard has been going strong for well over 40 years….it’s had it’s tough times with late frosts, but the good seasons still came after those years. John and Patsy did a tremendous job making the peach business a success, and now Patsy and her sons keep the operation growing. They have grown by adding many seasonal vegetables and fruits to the original peach stand. Now blueberries, blackberries, nectarines, watermelons, tomatoes, silver queen sweet corn and many varieties of peas are available along with the delicious peaches.
The greatest addition to the peach stand is the homemade peach ice cream!! Started back in 2006 the ice cream has been a fantastic hit!! People drive near and far for our delicious ice cream!”

Since our farm is located in South Georgia, our Peach crop is very weather dependent. If we have a very warm winter, then we don’t have a good peach crop because the peach trees need a certain amount of chill hours to go through a dormant state. When we have normal temperatures, and make a good amount of fruit, we open our orchards for U-Pick and we have already picked Peaches available in our Country Store. We grow several different varieties that are early, normal, and late bloomers in the hopes of having a longer picking season. Since they all have different chill hour requirements, sometimes one variety has a better/heavier crop than another. Peaches are not like strawberries in that they will not just keep on blooming and producing to make a long season. Once all the peaches are picked the tree is done for the season. All seasons are weather dependent on our farm so be sure to check here, our facebook page, or call ahead to find out what’s available!”
