Where can I find The Peach Pelican?
See our calendar of events for Peach ‘Pit’ Stops. Mid-May through late August you will be able to find our peaches from New Orleans to Baton Rouge and Lafayette- all the way to the Grand Isle. We’ll have Peach ‘Pit’ Stops every day of the week during peach season. When peaches aren’t in season, The Peach Pelican will offer some of our favorite things from The Peach State & The Pelican State including pecans, spices, BBQ rubs and sauces, candles, oyster knifes, fire kettles and our soon to be famous Peach Pelican clothing.
How much are your peaches?
We sell our peaches by the 3lb. bag for $8 or 25lb. half-bushel box for $45.
What are my payment options?
We accept and prefer any major credit or debit card, but we’ll take cash too. No checks, please.
What if I don’t use my whole box of peaches?
Share, freeze or can your fresh peaches. Freezing is easy! Just wash, peel (if you’d like), cut into pieces, and place in freezer safe plastic bag, lay flat on a freezer shelf for stackable space. Frozen peaches are easy to thaw and taste fresh right out of the freezer!
Where are Peach Pelican peaches grown?
Our peaches are grown in Ft. Valley, Georgia by generations of families with sustainable farming practices.
What variety of peaches do you offer?
The Georgia Farmers we partner with grow over 40 varieties of peaches. Our favorite is Elberta peach that was first grown in Georgia in the 1870’s by a farmer who named the peach after his wife (because it was so sweet and beautiful). Whichever variety was picked yesterday, is what we offer our customers along the Gulf Coast.
Are your peaches Non-GMO or Organic?
Our peaches are non-GMO and are only minimally treated, if necessary. The farms we partner with never want to spray, but if they are in danger of losing a crop they minimally treat the crop to protect it. Our farms are GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) certified.
Why are Peach Pelican peaches better than grocery store peaches?
Georgia Peaches arriving in Louisiana are picked the day before to ensure peak ripeness that you can smell and taste. Grocery store peaches are usually picked before they are ripe then spend more time in transport. Peaches bruise very easily, so by the time the peaches arrive to the produce department their texture and flavor are oftentimes compromised.
