Abbeville, Edgefield, Greenwood, Laurens, & McCormick Counties
Did you know South Carolina produces more peaches than Georgia and is the nation’s second-largest producer of peaches behind California? In addition, the largest peach grower on the East Coast is Titan Farms, right here in Edgefield County, SC, with 6,200+ acres of peaches in production! With 60 percent of South Carolina’s peaches grown in the Old 96 District, it’s no wonder that we’re excited about peach season and all the delicious and fresh peachy treats available during the early summer months. 
A Celebration of the Peach
Here are some peachy events and spots you won’t want to miss. 

Visit the Ridge Peach Festival
Running the third weekend of June for more than 50 years in Trenton, SC, this festival celebrates heritage and peaches in a nostalgic way that will make you feel like you came back home. On Saturday, June 17, watch the morning parade and then browse through booths with arts and crafts, antiques, fresh peaches, peach ice cream, desserts and preserves.

Just-picked peaches, berries, vegetables and other goodies are waiting for you. Start with Jackie’s Market and Cook’s Roadside Market. Stop at Titan Farms' roadside stand and Sara’s Fresh Market in Trenton for homemade peach ice cream. Order a Titan Farms’ Carolina Beauty Peach Giftbox – 13 gorgeous peaches – for a friend or family member. For more fresh, local produce, check out Big Smile peaches, or shop the regular farmer's markets across the region. A farmer’s market visit is the perfect celebration of peaches in the Old 96 District!
Order a sweet, dry or wine slushy flight or purchase wine by the glass at this Johnston, SC, vineyard. Listen to live music from 1-3 p.m. on Saturdays from March through October. Come for Food Truck Friday Night and live music on the last Friday of the month.
Find out how this downtown Edgefield distillery makes its moonshine with a free tour and tasting, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. The peach-flavored moonshine, rum and whiskey are made with peaches from J.W. Yonce & Sons, Inc. Big Smile Peaches in Johnston.
