Current Crop Update
Early Majestic, Ruby Prince, Southern Pearl*, Tex Royal*
*slowly coming in
The harvest volume has slowed some with the completion of Regal and nearing the end of JuneGold. We are starting Early Majestic (not "Majestic" which comes late June / early July) and will slowly start TexRoyal (freestone) and Southern Pearl (white-fleshed, semi-freestone) this week. Because Early Majestic and TexRoyal are coming from young trees, there will not be a large volume of either. The Southern Pearl crop looks really nice though.
Harvester (freestone) is starting to color slightly but will not begin for at least another 10 days.
We are going to be shipping peaches for the first time ever this summer! We are still waiting patiently for our boxes and inserts but hope they will arrive in the next two weeks.
Other Local Produce
Local tomatoes, squash, zucchini, okra, and other produce typically start in June. We will update you on their arrival here, via email, and on our social medias.

OTHER LOCAL FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Here at Vogel Orchard our focus is to provide our customers with the best home-grown products. Throughout the season, you will be able to purchase peaches, blackberries, plums, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, okra, pears, and much much more.
Nelda's Peach Produts
At 85 years old, Nelda Vogel, the co-founder of Vogel Orchard, continues to help make her delicious Peach Preserves, Peach Butter, Plum Jelly, Pear Preserves, and many more wonderful products. You can purchase these in store or have them shipped straight to your door.
Not only do we pride ourselves on having fresh, local produce, but we encourage customers to try our tasty treats made fresh daily. Available for purchase at our storefront, we have peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream, and Peach Butter ice cream, made with Nelda's Peach Butter.
In the summer of 2011, we planted our first pumpkin seeds to be harvested that same Fall. Ever since, our pick-your-own patch has grown with different varieties, including Fairytale, Jarrahdale, Pie, Jack-O-Lanterns, Cinderella, Warty Goblin, Atlantic Giant, and many more. We also have pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, and already picked pumpkins available for purchase at our retail market.
While we have kept in touch with our customers via phone, email, and Facebook for years now, we have recently started our Instagram journey. We felt it was important to provide our customers with photo updates about the season, and it has shown great success! Follow us using the link below.
