You’ll notice that the roads near Lakeview Orchard in Rockport, Indiana are tree-lined, but it’s not the typical oak, walnut, or maple!

Instead, you’ll see plenty of peaches surrounding this Spencer County orchard.

Apparently Georgia is not the only place known for peaches! This Indiana orchard is loaded with them–and almost 30 different varieties. Who knew there were so many kinds of peaches?!?

Peaches for canning or freezing and peaches for eating, there’s a lot here to love!

With somewhere around 100 acres of peaches (and a couple dozen acres for apples), you can only imagine how good it smells inside of the Lakeview Orchards market.

Beginning in the early 60’s, Lakeview Orchard has kept the area supplied in fresh local produce and even canned items.

Although they do carry mostly peaches, there’s a slew of other locally supplies fruits and veggies available!

You’ll see Mount Zion United Methodist Church canned products like strawberry, blackberry,  pineapple jams and jellies and even apple butter. You know those church ladies can cook!

The tables are piled with peaches (of course), apples, and maybe also tomatoes, corn, berries, and squash (to name a few).

Take a look at the neat old fashioned apple press. That sure looks like a lot of work.

    I have been going to this orchard since I was a kid and it seems like I have never been able to find peaches like this…anywhere, not even GA! I don’t live in the area anymore but, my family and I make a trip at least 1 time during peach season and sometimes it is the only reason we come!!! I should mention it is almost a 4 hour drive, they are that good;) I made the mistake of gifting some of my neighbors with some because I was not able to use them all and did not have enough time to can any that year so, now we almost need a truck for what we bring back:) They start asking in March lol! If you are a lover of peaches this is a must! I would be surprised if you could find a better one anywhere else;)
