Peach Bliss From Carroll Farms
I have been frantic this past two weeks-worried that I might get too busy and forget to head down to middle Georgia for our Lane Peaches-when happily I was directed to a peach packing company in my own backyard.
Carroll Farms is located in neighboring Merriwether County, Georgia-a hop, skip and a jump from Coweta County. Their roadside stand offers fresh peaches by the bag, bushel and box and are picked from trees right across a narrow country road.
While excited to get a box of large, firm freestone peaches-we also sampled their refreshing soft-serve peach ice cream made from a family recipe! Owner, Kay Carroll Barnes, graciously allowed us to snap photos of her family, peach trees and popular roadside stand decorated with rustic signs and oversized rockers!
Paired with a Fig and Mamey Syrup I created yesterday, Ron and I enjoyed a vitamin-packed soy shake of fresh peaches and Blueberry Yogurt! The only comments uttered during the consumption of our enriched shake "WOW".
