Hilltop Orchard

Family owned and operated for over 30 years

About US
We have been growing peaches for over 30 years. The first orchard around 1977. It was a beautiful orchard that consisted of 500 trees. About 5 years ago we realized we needed to re-plant and start a new orchard because the old trees were beyond their prime. We re-planted our new orchard and incorporated bare ground strips to aid in frost protection. We also had to build a fence around our new orchard to prevent deer from damaging the trees. We have grown corn now for over 15 years. Many people have become dependent on our corn due to the fact of how hard it is to grow corn in the garden successfully. With the increase in the deer population, this can be a tough task. We grow about 4-5 acres of silver queen corn and begin selling it by the dozen as soon as it matures. All of our corn is picked fresh daily in the mornings. Occasionally we have to go back and pick more throughout the morning if we sell out. We try to pick all of our corn in the mornings because it sustains the fresh quality better. If you pick corn in the afternoon after the temperature has climbed, the corn will not stay fresh very long after it's been pulled.

We offer a pick your own operation with peaches. We also have peaches already picked as well. However, during corn harvesting, peaches will mainly be pick your own only due to most of our labor being focused on pulling corn. All of our corn is pre- picked.
