At Pearson Farm they have over a century of peach growing experience!
“For more than 135 years, the land we know as Pearson Farm has supported the growth of authentic Georgia-grown peaches and pecans as well as the growth of the five generations of family that pioneered it. The core elements remain the same today – good soil, hard work, honest dealings, family and faith.
Our hope and heart from the very beginning has always been to share the bounty the farm provided – peaches, pecans, and wonderful things made in the kitchen – and that remains our passion today. We are blessed with a strong family, happy to have visitors, honored to have friends, and committed to providing things in good measure.
We wholeheartedly invite you to visit us when you get the chance. We’d love to meet you with a warm, southern welcome and send you home with the best peaches and pecans from our backyard.
From June until early August, we proudly ship our fresh Georgia peaches all over the continental United States.* Handpicked straight from our orchards, these sweet peaches are a summertime delight. Clingstone peaches are available at the beginning of peach season in early June, while Freestone and Prince peaches will be harvested beginning mid-June through the end of the season. ”

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!”

The Upick fruit opportunities at Southern Grace Farms are excellent but the fun activities for a day on the farm don’t end there – read on to find out all the wonderful family friendly things there are to do!
“Visit our u-pick farm in South Georgia and pick a gallon of fresh Georgia Grown strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, nectarines, or plums. Let the kids play on our unique, re-purposed farm tire playground, browse our country store filled with Georgia Grown Goodies and Southern apparel & gifts, and sit on the porch enjoying a cup of our deliciously addictive homemade strawberry ice cream! We schedule field trips to our South Georgia farm in the spring and host birthday parties year round.
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!”
