That’s good news for Austin, but that’s excellent news if you happen to love peaches.
These peaches are always some of the best I have every summer, and if you want to try them for yourself, you have until June 28 to place an order at nwaustinkiwanis.org/peaches or by calling 737-333-9592.
Bud Baughman, the Kiwanis Club member who coordinates the sale every year, says the Pittsburg peach farmers aren’t facing the same troubles as the Hill Country growers this year. In mid-September, they sell a second round of peaches but they buy them from Colorado, where it’s still too early in the season to know how the peach crop will be, Baughman says.
A 22 pound box of peaches costs $45, and all the proceeds go to those community projects. You’ll pick them up between 8:30 a.m. and noon on Saturday, July 8, at Anderson High School.
