Peaches from Schnepf Farms have been named and featured in Wine Spectator Magazine as the best in the country and for over 50 years, the Schnepfs have continued to extend their season by planting more orchards with different varieties. Peaches like Earligrande, Springcrest, Florida Prince , Florida King are all popular varieties that grow extremely well in the Desert climate.
Their Peach Season begins before any other location in the Country. Its an incredible season that lasts 6 to 7 weeks! So if you are a peach lover, then plan accordingly because all different varieties ripen at different times.Error, group does not exist! Check your syntax! (ID: 4)

Hayrides to Orchards: You can walk to the Peach Orchard to pick, or you can take a hay ride to the orchard. The Hayride will take you to the orchard that has the most ripe peaches. We have several varieties of peaches on the farm and they all are not ripe for the peach festival. So you can only pick at those orchards where there are signs , tents and people or the hay ride drops you .
The farm is the largest Peach Grower in the State, all organic and pesticide FREE. 50 years ago, Ray Schnepf planted his first peach trees, two years later the farm started picking and shipping peaches all over the Country. Soon, as people drove out to Queen Creek for a little day trip, they noticed Peach Trees in the desert. At first we picked the delicate fruit and would sell in our little roadside stand, but five years later, we opened our orchards for UPICK.
