Cadron Crest Orchard


Last year we had to find another place to pick fresh, delicious Arkansas peaches. We lived across the street from Collins Round Mountain Orchard. Unfortunately, they sold the land last year to a developer which meant no more peach picking. Fortunate for us we found another terrific place, Cadron Crest Orchard. Cadron Crest Orchard is a unique farm in Guy, Arkansas. They grow fresh Apples, Peaches, Strawberries, Watermelon, grapes, watermelon, tomatoes, sweet corn and cantaloupe that I saw. If you are looking for something else, you can call them at the number below for more information or see their Facebook page here. They are open May through September where you can walk through rows and rows of beautiful peach or apple trees. You can pick your fruit and vegetables fresh from the farm to your table.

Nothing is better than eating fresh farm fruit and vegetables except for eating the fresh farm fruits and vegetables you picked. It is super fun for the entire family. We race around the orchard trying to see who can spot the prettiest piece of fruit. A little family competition fills our basket of fresh fruit in no time.

What did we pick from Cadron Creek Orchard?

We have picked fresh peaches and apples at Cadron Creek Orchard. They had tons of beautiful apples and peaches just waiting to be picked. When you arrive at the orchard, they tell you exactly what they are picking and where to go. They even give you a basket to fill.

What did we do with all our fresh peaches?

I am from the south which means I love sweet ice tea. What makes sweet ice tea even better is peach syrup. Which I made plenty of with the peaches we picked. I also made peach fritters and slow cooker peach butter.

And, of course, everybody’s favorite – Peach Ice Cream
