The peaches are ripe for the picking or so they say at Apple Annie’s Orchard in Willcox.
This weekend and next (July 18-19 and July 25-26) plus the first three weekends in August, jump in the car and enjoy a celebration of farm fresh peaches.
The 12th annual Peach Mania starts with a delicious “All You Can Eat” pancake with peaches breakfast served from 7 to 10:30 a.m. each weekend day. The Peach Pavilion features free samples of tasty peach products. Sit in the shaded peach orchard and enjoy a slice of homemade peach pie or a bowl of homemade peach ice cream. You can also enjoy hot roasted sweet corn; pick your own corn, vegetables, and peaches all the while spending a memorable day on the farm with family and friends. Take a free wagon ride and experience the orchards beauty.
Willcox is slightly cooler than Tucson so that’s another reason to go.
